Fox Hunt Grant presented by local MP Tony Pasin

The South East Radio Group recently received a grant of $2,754 from the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program. The grant enabled the purchase of equipment which will ensure rapid and accurate scoring of the Australian Radio Fox Hunting Championships held annually in Mount Gambier. This money was used to purchase latest High Tec. Equipment to assist and save countless man hours working out competitor times for the event of the Fox Hunting. The items were well received by SERG President Peter Becker and presented by our local Member Mr Tony Pasin. We would like to thank you Mr Pasin and the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program for making this happen.
