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. Appropriately, on the 13th March (near to "St. Patrick's Day") we welcomed the Rev. Dr. Stanley Gamble for a talk about "St. Patrick, a Saint for All". 2. On the 20th March, Victor Falls came along to give us some driving tips and talk about the 'Institute of Advanced Motorists'. 3. And 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. 4. At the 17th April meeting our guest was Keith Leighton, talking about “The Bann Rowing Club”. 5. There was something different for our meeting on 24th April, the club was given a history of Hutchinson Engineering, while visiting the factory itself! 6. The 1st May meeting featured an exciting talk by Howard Caskie, who took us to the USA and along “Route 66.” Our final 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).

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.

Please note: The site update has taken longer than estimated and several pages/links are NOT currently activated, sorry about this, we will be up and running fully as soon as possible - WebEd, who is now blaming holidays; the Christmas/New Year celebrations and a collection of virol infections that has laid him low (honest, really!)
