Merry Christmas!

Wishing all members and friends of the WAMRC a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!

The new public layout roster volunteering form is now on the whiteboard at the club. Please make sure you drop in to the club before mid-January and put your name down for your preferred dates. I’ve also added a second sheet where you can specify specific dates (or ranges of dates) where you know you will not be available.

March General Meeting postponed one week

The Secretary (Ross) will be away with work on the 16th March, so rather than press-ganging someone else into taking the minutes, the committee intends to delay the next regular general meeting by a week to Wednesday 23rd March (still at 8pm in the clubrooms). Formal notice of the meeting will go out this coming Wednesday (2nd March) as normal.

We received a nice note from our travelling President a few days ago. Sounds like his trip is going well:

Hi, Yes we are still alive! Mind you we just about got fried alive going across the Nullarbor; 43°C for about 5 days in a row. Philip island was nice and cool. In Portland, Victoria at the moment with some bad weather on its way tonight; 30 to 40mm rain forecast. At this stage we will be home on the 7th March, a week before my rostered day on. Say hi to the other members for me.

Thanks Mark & Beryl

Half their luck – after 14 nights of minimums greater than 20°C, I could do with a bit of ‘bad weather’ about now…

Finally, the N-Scale boys finally got cracking last Wednesday night and knocked up four wooden frames in a little over an hour (see picture above) – each one measuring 2.4 x 1 metre. And that was in spite of all the *ahem* ‘helpful advice and encouragement’ *cough* from the rest of the assembled peanut gallery club members. 🙂

New Email address

The club’s old email address is still not fixed (although we are still working on it), so we have set up a new permanent address for the club.

Please update your address book(s) with the address on the contact page.

Email problems

The club’s normal email address has died and due to the time of year, we are not able to find out what is going on and get it fixed for a few days.

In the meantime, a temporary GMail address has been set up as a backup. Please use this email address until advised otherwise.
