SOCIAL PROGRAM- The social program has been set and we are once again pitting teams against each other as we head to a local pub for a CASEM dedicated Trivia Night on Thursday at the “Sticky Wicket”. We have made a significant change to the Gala Dinner in 2016. We are moving it to Friday night in the Empress’ famous Crystal Ballroom and we encourage you all to attend. Over and above the sumptuous 4-course dinner, the Victoria band Timebenders will play into the wee hours of Saturday morning – as a consideration to the oldies out there we have started programming for Saturday a smidgeon later! The 5km sightseeing run will return and give delegates a chance to experience Victoria sights and sounds on foot – 100% of monies collected will be donated to a local charity.
Last but not least, each delegate will receive a CASEM surprise gift in their registration packs – what is it? Register to find out!
