VIC/TAS Branch Report - May 2016 

The Victorian branch committee recently met and has put together a plan for events for the year. We are planning a social catch up in May, training courses in July and a site visit in August. This will potentially be followed up in September with a cheese and wine event where we can discuss the impact of smoke on wine grapes in Victoria.
