The Sports Chaplains Team for Manilla 2007 is a first for such an air sports event. They will be at Mt Borah and HQ to help out pilots and visitors in many and varied areas which may require counselling or just simply someone to talk to. They also present an important link between the community and visitors - ask them a question about just about anything in the area and they will have an answer or know someone who can help you.
The team has been to a workshop with Sports Chaplaincy Australia and is ready to help out.
