Meeting Fees

A Meeting Fee of $5.00 helps cover management costs, room hire, tea & coffee and organised activities. Each meeting includes raffles and a challenge that you may like to participate in. These are an important source of revenue raising to cover costs.


ATASDA coffee, tea, milk and sugar are available (no charge) at our Quarterly and Social meetings. Crockery (mugs and cups) and cutlery are also available for members to use. Members are asked to bring a small plate of food suitable for morning or afternoon tea to Meetings.

There are few or no cafes in the immediate area (although some wonderful cafes and restaurants are located a quick drive or a few minutes walk away) so you are advised to BYO lunch, particularly if you're intending to attend for the full day.
