U3A Pt Adelaide has some great speakers and the topics run the gamut of academic subjects and all places in the world but every true Port resident shares one particular interest: Port Adelaide Football Club. On the 13th June, U3A members visited the clubrooms, learning about their training program, which has attracted interest from some of the major European soccer clubs, and the value of their new links with China both for the Club and local business community. Here U3A visitors are striking a pose in front of the 2004 premiership team

Mr Chris Flavel, Clinical Supervisor at the UniSA Exercise Physiology Clinic, is seeking opportunities for his students to present information on the human body, health, exercise, fitness etc. He previously held such presentations at Whyalla U3A branch some time ago, and reports the attendees found the information practical and useful.
If you have any openings over the coming months, please let him know, as he is happy to provide up to 2 guest speakers.
At this stage the offer is just for metropolitan Adelaide but country visits may happen at a later date. He says there is no time limit on his offer though they probably require up to 4 weeks to prepare for the presentation, allocate a student, planning etc.
The presentations will be generally about keeping active in our later years, prevention and management of chronic diseases through a healthy lifestyle. Covering such things as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer and many more.
As indicated at our last Delegate’s meeting the Application form for the 2016/17 round of DSD / U3A SA grants are now available. The form is similar to last year and we just need to remind everyone that capital equipment can only make up a minor part of the application. DSD define capital equipment as an individual piece of equipment with a value over $100.
