March 16, 2017 - Australian Flyball Association Inc. (Message Expiry: April 19, 2017)
We are still looking for volunteers to assist with the demos at the Easter Show, mainly on Tuesday, but, other days won't be refused.
Due to the running surface we will be using the matting and will need a few strong arms to carry the two rolls (30kg each) into and out of the ring, prior to setting the boxes and jumps.
Entry tickets and parking will be provided
Please contact Frank at [email protected] or on 0419 146 321
