Forthcoming Meetings

A quick update on what's coming up over the next few weeks>>>>

Next meeting, 1st October, is our AGM. If anyone has anything to go on the agenda please email me.

15th October is the night when we learn who wins the Maynah Lewis Cup for 2010. We are pleased to welcome this year's judge, Judith Railton, who has agreed to announce the winner, present the cup, and give a little talk. Looking forward to it.

Now, important, THERE IS NO MEETING ON FRIDAY 5TH NOVEMBER. This is because the annual  fireworks display and ritual burning of Mayer Park takes place that night, and there will be nowhere to park our cars. So it gives us an extra night of writing at home to prepare for Friday 19th November, when we will hold our annual short competition.

For those of you who are new, here's how it works: We each write a 500 word piece (this year it is an article about a hobby or interest) and on the 19th Nov meeting we read it out. Nobody says a word, instead we mark each story out of ten, on a score sheet, and write some brief comments. Then we add up the scores and somebody wins.

Then on 3rd of December we wrap up the year with our Christmas Party. More details about this to follow.
