It has taken me a week to overcome the euphoria felt after the hugely succesful wine tasting evening last Wednesday. Admittedly attendance was not high but, for a Zoom meeting, the enthusiastic crowd were easy to manage, discipline was good and we all learnt a lot. A repeat, by popular demand, will take place in the New Year.
Next on the agenda is a quiz, compiled and compered by Norman Hore on Wednesday January 20th on Zoom at 1930. Details from Norman as follows:-
In January there will be a non-technical, nautical quiz to help to bring our brains back to matters maritime. No special knowledge of the mechanics of boating is required, just a knowledge of geography, history, nature and a few other diverse subjects. The quiz will be held on Zoom and we will be happy to organise a training session in advance for anybody who would like to do the quiz but is not yet confident with Zoom on the computer. It is likely that conference calls will, increasingly, become a fixture in the future, so if you have not yet had the opportunity to become familiar with the technology, this will be a good opportunity to do so.
I will open the doors at 1900 to give you time to settle down, I will close the doors when I think the room is full so be early. The Zoom invitation will follow closer to the date. Jan. 20th also happens to be my birthday, I would have bought you all a drink in the 7 Stars, unhappily this won’t be possible this year.
An up to date calendar of events for 2021, as far as we are able to predict at the moment, will be displayed on the Club web site. Have a Merry Christmas, while sticking to the rules, so that the New Year will be Happy with falling numbers of Covid infections.
All the best,
