    Howdy Diggar,

    This coming summer is totally booked, lots of rallies to attend. If i make it to Oz again it will be next year at the earliest, I would like to make the OCR, I think this is held every two years so the next one after this years will be in 2016, is that correct?

    Yep , Early August every second ( even numbered ) year .

    WE will know the location and exact date immediately after the currently scheduled OCR has taken place , as the meeting and voting on the next location happens at that event . Just then need to wait for someone who is / was there to post up the news :wink: .

    Many people have the same problem. I've had 'discussions' with my bosses bosses boss to get to a few OCRs.. You plan things out many months out and some b$%@#%$Z# tries to scew it 2 weeks before you leave. The OCR rules are - keep even year August free of any commitments .. even September is pushing it. :deal
