Hello Members
As many of you were not at club last Thursday, here is a reminder of what is happening over the next few weeks and beyond:
Next Thursday, 10th Dec.  Competition Night. If you intend to enter the Knock-out PDI competition at the Social in the hope of winning one of Gloria’s delicious Christmas cakes, please bring your entries on your memory stick and hand them in at this meeting. You can enter up to three images, but they must be new pictures and not entered in previous competitions.   There will also be a RAFFLE at this meeting.
Thursday 17th Dec. Our Christmas Social. Please bring food & drink for the buffet (a glass of wine is provided by the club).   Please also bring wrapped gifts for the TOMBOLA.  People are welcome to bring partners/spouses etc.
Saturday 16th Jan 2016  Our New Year Meal at The Malthouse, Berkeley. As in previous years it will be a Carvery with optional starters, desserts & coffee.   Booking forms giving the prices and choices will be available at club from 10th Dec. and George, our Treasurer will be delighted to take your payment
Monday 13th June 2016  Our club holiday to Belgium, staying at Ostend for four nights and returning on Friday 17th June. Visits will be made to Bruges, Ghent and Ypres (Flanders Fields). Cost is £249.99. with a  supplement of £45 for singles.  Gloria has secured seats at the front of the coach and we will be picked up in Dursley.  Gloria needs a firm booking with deposit by the middle of January.
Friday 24th & Saturday 25th June 2016  Our Exhibition in Dursley at the Methodist Church. This will be part of the Dursley Festival. Please book this date in your diaries – there is always plenty to be done to stage something like this, so we need help from all members, not just the Committee.
Finally, we have purchased a new Digital Projector and Laptop and they were used for the first time last Thursday and gave very pleasing results. Thanks must go to Bill Beere for researching, purchasing and setting it all up for the club.
Well, that’s all for now. Any queries, ring me or e-mail or check out the website.
