A few willing members tried to copy, but I suspect that frustration was more…Read More
Once again the Calcutta was a fun night with lots of laughs and bonus dollars for the lucky winners whose details are inside. Thank you once again to Kent, Wayne and Neil Wilson for their efforts in organising the night and to Smokey for his time on the floor somehow squeezing extra bids out of…Read More
On Tuesday night there was a meeting with Bruce, Marcia, Leigh Wallace and myself investigating possibilities for membership promotion.
