lytchett matravers talk Tues 6th feb

excellent turn out.  over 50 seats filled and the TALK went very well.

lovely venue with projector and sound system.

looking forward to the next presentation at Dorchester

My display will be at the FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY open day at Poole Grammar School on Saturday 24th March 2018. free entry.

I have re arranged my display and constructed a Mk2 Auxillary supply box and my interpretation of a Mk1 content. photos on page 2 of exhibits.


After my jump with both feet into the murky waters of public speaking in june (a report follows) my second attempt was more polished and with a new computer and more content it was very well received. Ken williams was once again in attendance, Joy his wife (Fred Simpsons sister) was not well enough this time.

a slightly smaller audience of 26 people were present mainly due to inclement weather but never the less a much more pleasant and gratifying experience. thankyou to all our guests for a good review.

well......... my inageral presentation was nearly a disaster.

tried and tested at home and at the venue several times.

first the computer froze and again after a reboot.

Then the sound system  decided to sqeal and i turned it off. i now realize that it was too close to the projector?

then I realized that if you turn out the lights for a projector show you cannot see the lengthy and well prepared notes to go with the slides.

after a horrendous start like that it could only get better.

the audience were silent and listened intently to me flying by the seat of my pants and i had a round of applause to finish. everyone was happy and asked loads of questions afterwards.

improvements for the next show are being put in place as we speak and with a little trepidation I am looking forward to the next one.??

BLUE POOL 10TH SEPT 2PM and provisional bookings for several in the new year.


second TALK a brilliant success.

Not quite a full house but all went well and I have two more talks booked for the new year.
