2014 Gear Check Manual Changes & Amendments

Please be advised of the following changes & amendments from the State Coaching Panel to be inserted into the manual...

HELMET CAMERAS

The PCAWA Board would like to provide the following explanation
regarding the use of Helmet Cameras:


PCAWA has been made aware that when a camera is mounted to a helmet in any way, that helmet no longer conforms to the Australian Safety Standards 3838 and may in fact impede the safety function of that helmet in the event of an accident.

PCAWA Members must, at all times, wear helmets that conform to the Australian Standard 3838 or equivalent.


We apologise for any inconvenience or confusion caused regarding helmet cameras over the past few months,
however PCAWA strives to ensure the safety of our Members at all times.

Important Information in relation to Horses, Pets and Bushfires

Each month the DFES has new topics that they promote out to the general community and in light of the recent fires at Mundaring and Wandi, PCAWA have formed an information link with DFES and will be involved in future working parties that involve planning around livestock and horses.

This month the DFES general topics are "Fire Safety & Pets" and we are pleased to present these three information flyers to you. Please take the time to read these especially the factsheet regarding Horses & Bushfires.

Vale Lucy Oorschot

Lucy was a long standing member of Esperance Pony Club.

As well as being one of our top junior riders, Lucy was also an outstanding athlete who represented WA in both Eventing and Tetrathlon at the recent Pony Club Nationals.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes to the Oorschot family, Lucy's friends, Esperance Pony Club members and the wider Esperance community, our thoughts are with you all.

Lucy, your gorgeous smile and wonderful spirit touched so many people, it is with heavy hearts we say goodbye.

The “Common Ground” Taskforce.

Members of EA and PCAWA Boards recently met to identify commonalities between the two membership organisations.  It was resolved that a joint strategic planning exercise will take place in February  2014 with a view to developing areas in which both organisations can assist each other on a longer term basis. Initial outcomes of the planning meeting will be shared with all members.
This is an exciting development that promises to provide each organisation with greater membership benefits more efficiently delivered.
