HOW I CAN HELP AT THE CYCLONE?
If you have specific event related skills or experience, please mention these in your email and don’t forget to include your name, age, contact details and let Peter know which days you are available.
WHY NOT ENTER THE CYCLONE YOURSELF?
You can also help the event massively by simply turning up and participating in one of the public events. The whole Cyclone weekend is run on a not-for-profit basis and every entry received means more income to spend on the practicalities of running the weekend.
