Catch up with the news; what's been added to the website recently?

A LOT has been added to the Club Website in the last few of weeks of our Spring sessions….
1. On the 10th April, we were pleased and honoured to meet Prof. Hugh McGavock, when he talked about 'The Golden Age of Medicine' - We are deeply saddened to hear that Prof. McGavock passed away on the 17th April. 2. At the 17th April meeting our guest was Keith Leighton, talking about “The Bann Rowing Club”. 3. There was something different for our meeting on 24th April, the club was given a history of Hutchinson Engineering, while visiting the factory itself! 4. The 1st May meeting featured an exciting talk by Howard Caskie, who took us to the USA and along “Route 66.” 5. We started our Autumn session on the 4th September with an interesting talk on "Eye Care" by Stephen Vandevyer. 6. And then on the 11th September, historian Ken Ward returned to the Club with a talk on the '50 years of the University of Ulster'.
Our final Special meetings for the Spring were on the 8th May, when members and guests enjoyed the ever popular Club Quiz and Lunch and on the 19th June when we had a Probus Visit and BBQ at the Ulster Gliding Club (see further below).
FINALLY we have added the first batch of 'Archive' pages to the website. There is a good chance that some of the links do not work correctly (or not at all?), but please take a look AND THEN tell us where links are broken or of other problems you have found. (Thank-you in advance - WebEd)

The club ended their Spring session of meetings in the traditional manner of a brain teasing quiz followed by lunch. Our President exchanged his chain of office, to take the 'Quiz Master' role and our Social Events Chair, Joe Alcorn, took over the 'Scorer' role.
