Stan spoke about leadership qualities and self development and shared some great AFL insights. I found this particularly impressive, given he coached the team I follow, the MIGHTY SAINTS!
Robyn facilitated a seminar about dealing with adversity and achieving the most from life. This was a message delivered exceptionally well, given her involvement in numerous charities, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Although a heavy message at times, Robyn inspired us when talking about some of the ‘wishes’ she has been involved in granting. This included the story of a young boy who wanted to go fishing on a boat and actually catch a fish. The Make-A-Wish Foundation made that happen alright ... They had a diver under the boat with a bag full of them! Each time that rod went in, out came another fish. How amazing!
Some of the team activities we participated in included rock-wall climbing; high wire challenges, up in the air 10+ meters, making it from one point to another on large cables (harnessed in thankfully); obstacle courses and spending an afternoon at the Quite Cone, practicing some relaxation techniques. There were too many tasks to name but they all held a common goal – achieving great outcomes through team work.
All in all, this was an action-packed week which I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt from. It is great to see the Rotary clubs collaboratively put on such a great event and invest in young Tasmanians. If you ever get a chance to attend – take it!
I’d like to thank the Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise for sponsoring me to attend this event.
