News September 2021 -Part 2

Future events
Hopefully we can get the Mudeford club lunches up and running again.
If this is not possible, we will look for another venue.

Sometime in the autumn, we will re-book the long postponed skittles afternoon at the Walkford

In the meantime, Les Mercer has asked if anyone is interested in having a go at either:
Cross country Segway ride at Moors Valley (cost is around £35 per person)
Hovercrafting at Poole (cost around £50)
I had a go on the Segway which was good fun once you convince yourself that they do not fall over when you step on!

Now that things are seemingly getting back to normal and as soon as our members feel it is ok to meet as a group indoors, we have to set a date for our annual CMS AGM.
Only members will be allowed to attend and vote so here is a reminder for anyone who has not yet paid their subs!

Greystone's Workshop
Tuesday and Thursday mornings are still the most popular times and can get a bit crowded.
We have been trying to get the Wednesday morning group up and running again but are struggling to reach a critical mass. There is sometimes only one member present which is not safe and that does not allow the power supply to be switched on.
Let me know if you think the Wednesday morning session would work for you and I will try to get a group together.
We do have access to the workshop any time Monday to Friday so it might be that another day / time works better - let me know what suits.
Of course, all members are welcome to use the workshop any time they like, but for safety reasons, two should be the minimum number.

Mug Shots
Several people have asked if members' photos are up to date especially as we haven't seen each other for a while and there are a number of new faces.
I think it is easier to start again so better practice your best smile - the last lot of shots made us look like a bunch of convicts!

See you all soon!
