Chair

I sincerely hope that you all enjoyed the Xmas competition with Bognor last Wednesday. Congratulations to Andy Dulson who’s image above won the day and made the scores one all. Hopefully, as Bill Brooks said, we can do this again next year as a live event. Our thanks to the judges from both clubs for bravely taking on the role.

The link below is for a free to attend RPS zoom talk this coming Sunday 12th at 2pm. The talk is by John Bolloten and is entitled ‘Nothing to See Here’. Should any member wish to attend this talk they must register by 5pm Saturday 11th.

To all advanced members a reminder that the portal is open for the next PDI comp and for North Mundham. Closing dates are as follows, 3rd Adv PDI comp 29th Dec, North Mundham 31st Dec.

Note to all members. I have to inform you that I have made the decision to maintain zoom throughout January. This was a hard decision to make but taking into account the new variant of Covid, the current numbers per thousand in our area and the possibility of further negative guidance from our Government, I felt strongly that I had no other choice. On a more positive note, we are testing the systems at Tangmere with a view to holding hybrid meetings from February and we are hopeful that it will be successful.

At the present time we are still hoping to hold the North Mundham exhibition and are hard at work producing a sensible layout and a set of safety measures that will be implemented. I can assure you, that we will take every precaution and rigidly adhere to Covid guidance to maintain the safety of all who attend and exhibit. I will keep you all informed of progress.

So as 2021 draws to a close, I’d like firstly to thank the committee for all their work and support over the last few months and secondly to wish you all the compliments of the season and sincerely hope you have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.

Mike
