1st October 2019

Hi Everyone!

          I trust you are all coping with the Spring weather, with it's intermittent showers and changing tempertures.  Hang in there.  It wont be long before we are complaining about the heat!

September Korero

         What a great variety of items we had this month!  A most enjoyable evening which included everything from Anne's original poem to some superb musical classics.


          In case anyone else out there is confused, we have been advised that it is better if the microphones are controlled from the sound desk, so please leave them turned on after using them.

Sound Gear Training

         It was good to hear that a number of members attended a session with a local technician to familiarize themselves with the sound desk operation.  They found it most helpful and it will be beneficial to have extra helpers in the future.  Thanks to Anne for arranging this.

Presentation of Badges

         The remainder of badges due for 2019 will be presented by President Ken at the October Korero.  

Annual  Trophies

           If you are holding a trophy from last year, please bring it to the October Korero.  You will have the opportunity to vote for this years recipients at the A.G.M.
