It is with deep regret that WAFA NZ announce the cancellation of the ‘Southern Sojourn‘ Seminar in March 2021.
After receiving advice from various agencies we understand that it is probable there will be a conservative approach to opening our borders still in place at that time. This is likely to affect many of those expected and their ability to plan or to obtain insurance. We understand people would be reluctant to prepay without guarantees, but for the planned programme to go ahead, payments would have been required. WAFA NZ looked at a variety of scenarios before presenting our findings to the FASNZ Board and a decision was reached that sought to protect all involved. WAFA Ltd was consulted throughout this process.
We would like to thank our Seminar Chair, Barb Higgins, for the huge number of hours in detailed planning, negotiations, driving the route, finding activities, and the exciting overall concept for the Seminar.
We would also like to thank the wonderful members of Canterbury, South Canterbury, and Southern Regions who have already put many hours into the planning of workshops and demonstrations.
The WAFA NZ team hope to find a way to present various aspects of the Seminar online, in the build-up to the World Show, along with a peek at the beautiful South Island to whet your appetite for 2023. Please keep a regular watch on this news section for updates.
