TERM 1 has just come to a successful ending for members of the Bermagui and District University of the Third Age (U3A), but there is anticipation of some great things to come in Term 2.

Registration Day for Term 2 will be held on Wednesday, April 23, at the Bermagui Country Club from 10am until noon. 

Members can check out all the different courses on offer, talk to tutors and register for courses, workshops or activities.

You must be a member of U3A Bermagui and District, but for a small annual fee of $20 members can participate in as many courses as they can manage throughout the year. 

U3A Bermagui and District is not just for seniors – it’s open to everyone.

Term 2 will see U3A Bermagui and District offer 36 interesting, innovative and informative courses, workshops and activities that will stimulate the mind and expand your horizons.

Many old favourites are returning in Term 2 including Classical Music Appreciation, Oil and Watercolour painting, Book Chats, Computer Club, Birdwatching and Spanish, Italian and French language courses.

Lunch with a Local Treasure is always a popular event, and this term our “treasure” will be Chris Franks, who will entertain participants with yarns and stories of his life in the Bega Valley.

For prospective tutors of courses, once again Wilma Chinnock will offer a workshop on “Building your Skills as a U3A tutor” to be held just after registration has finished.

Some new and exciting activities in Term 2 will include Learn Fly Fishing at Eucumbene, A talk on the Bundian Way, and following on from the first successful excursion, Marine Biologist Nick Gard will present Life in the Estuary  Zone. 

If you are feeling crafty, there will also be a course for those who want to learn to Spin as well Introduction to Decoupage, or if you crave a challenge you can Learn to Play Bridge or Mah Jong.
