What's coming up in July and beyond?
Tuesday 4 July - Changeover
You will be able to find all subsequent events on the Events page.
Former President, Bob Austin, asked members to show their appreciation to President Peter for a great year as President.
Peter Sinke, once again, offered members the opportunity to take advantage of the Microsoft software to which we are entitled as a Charity - at ridiculous prices. He urged members to talk to him before they went shopping!
President Peter thanked Alistair Taylor for the great speaker line-up he'd provided throughout the year (as he won't be at Changeover next week)
Parting thought for the week
Leigh Corner misquoted Alfred Lord Tennyson with his advice to the losing rugby team tonight, "'Tis better to have played and lost than never to have played at all". And to the winning team he quoted from the Good News Bible, Proverbs 16:18, "Pride leads to destruction and arrogance to downfall". He didn't actually have a quote for a draw!
The speaker said ...
No speaker tonight. Instead we watched a thrilling match between the British and Irish Lions and our very own Wellington Hurricanes. What a come back by the Hurricanes to record a final score of 31-31!
