New member welcome Mini Meeting 5 February 2021

HMAC Clubhouse 2021
First clubhouse meeting of 2021

Last night we had our first offical “mini meeting” which was the first in-person club meeting since the lockdown. It went well and we will be doing more. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos, but I’m sharing the agenda here since there were web links that might be useful to those who attended.

In addition to welcoming Anthony May, John Ellison and Clint Young to the club, we were joined by Gian Young who brought along some fine examples of ARFs, and Ian Cole and Geoff Haynes who brought their years of experience. Thank you all, it was great fun!
