A message from our President, Chris Cable

 

Dear reader I am amazed at the quality of speakers that Tim Weichel and his Speaker's Committee are organizing for us this year. We may not always agree with our speakers' perspectives, but I think we can agree that all our speakers presentations have been thought provoking and engaging.

Chris

Coming soon ...Weekly Alerts

Coming soon ...Weekly Alerts

New events are added to the website all the time. Reports and photos of members enjoying club events and activities are usually posted within a day or two of  when they happened. We have had very positive reviews on the new format Newsletter this year and we will continue to create and improve it to summarize all the news for the month.  However, a month is a long time between reports for such a busy and dynamic club as ours with so much happening. So, very shortly we will be supplementing the Newsletter with a weekly roundup of new postings on the web-site if there are any that week sent to your inbox. We will include any new Events posted that week so that you can save the date if you are interested in advance of the monthly meeting plus you can get an early peek at those colour images of your fellow members at play.
