Warm weather for national conference

The animal health products producer Virbac gathered its sales team in Cairns, northern Queensland, during the last week of May, early June for its national conference. It couldn't have timed the gathering better for escaping the first polar blast to hit the country this year. While snow fell down south, it was short sleeves and shorts weather in the tropical north. Sam and Jenny Bailey visited briefly to speak on Tuesday night, May 31, during the national sales staff dinner at The Double Tree by Hilton. After a great night, and enjoying the warm weather, they returned home to Croppa Creek for the arrival of the first 15 degree day of the winter so far. "Oh well," laughed Sam, "It was great while it lasted....now winter has arrived with avengence." The first snow fell in the ski fields during the same week.
