Syllabus

The GARC members share their knowledge by presenting items of interest each week. These presentations last between 30 minutes to an hour. Sometimes it’s a technical presentation, sometimes general interest or an item of historical significance.

Go to our Presentations page to view some videos of these presentations.

There is always something interesting happening at the GARC and visitors are always welcome. The club is open every Wednesday afternoon from 1:30pm to 4:00pm and every Friday evening from 6:30pm. All technical talks and activities start at 8.00pm on Friday evening unless otherwise stated in the Syllabus.

Club General Meetings are held on the 1st Friday of each even numbered month for the general update and information to members. The fifth Friday of a month (where occurring) is set aside for a social activity and a surplus gear auction.
