Hi Craig,


Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your efforts in helping our Tasmania church conference be a huge success. The venue was perfect, and we received lots of positive feedback from our special Guest Elder Christofferson and the other visiting church leaders.


You were very helpful and accommodating to our needs and requests and I hope we didn’t cause too much concern with the Fun Run event with some of our early arrivals.


Thank you again fora very successful event.  


Kind Regards,

Hi Renee and Craig,

Firstly on behalf of the SYNTHONY team, thank you to both of you and to the MSBA crew as a whole. You were incredibly accommodating from the outset, and made our transition from outdoors to indoors as seamless as possible.

Thanks and here’s hoping we can plan a return visit for SYNTONY No.2 down the line.
