Many thanks to Mike Harris and Jeff Owen for putting together and delivering our first on -line full Club meeting yesterday. There were 46 Members who overcame the mysteries of Zoom to participate and discuss potential progamme subjects while we are all in lockdown and all were asked to consider and let us know if you have any other suggestions of what we might do. Mike reported on the detail of all this in the last Newsletter.
Mike has now been able to finalise speakers and dates for our revised summer programme and this will be as follows:
April 16th Janey Devine, ‘Celebrating British Life Today’.
April 23rd Live Club/Inter PDI Competition – judge Daan Olivier
30th April John Bradshaw – title to be determined
May 14th Glyn Edmunds ‘From Analogue to Instagram with Huawai’.
May 21st AGM
May 28th Pete Bamforth ‘O to be in Scotland now that Covids Here’.
All will be delivered on-line through Zoom. This platform is being used extensively by many organisations as a cheap and effective way of conducting meetings on-line though there are some security and privacy issues that are raised from time to time. It is very important therefore that if you choose to participate in Zoom meetings that you ensure your computer system anti-virus systems are effective and up to date and specifically please read the new Security Notice found at the top of the Home Page on the Club website
In addition to main Club meetings on Thursdays we are also offering sub group meetings: a very successful PAGB group meeting was held on 6th April, Richard Ryder has written a separate post on the next Digital group meeting included in this Newsletter and further events are planned for the Print group and possibly others. Do participate to make the very best of this dreadful lockdown situation.
