2016 AGM

11 March 2016 - 10:53 PM

To be held on 23 April at Crewkerne George Reynolds centre from 12 noon until after the firework display that evening. There will be buffet, tea coffee and bar available.

 

It will be an informal affair as things stand, apart from the presentation of accounts that do not take long.

We are looking for speakers to do a talk on the day, last minute I know. We also need directors to attend even if they intend to stand down on the day.

 

I look forward to meeting you all, members new and old. Do try and come along.

Don't know if any of you have come across this website  http://practicum.melscience.com/ some interesting experiments like the Methane Mamba.

 

Although some of the videos come under don't try this at home like the Armstrong's mix.


Fireworks displays fizzle out

Reading an article on the demise of counsel funded firework displays http://www.theguardi...ht-uk-austerity

 

One readers comment:

 

I remember when I was a kid
my dad would climb on the roof with a box of matches
as he lit and threw a match in the air
my mother would slap her slippers together
it was probably the worse run council display in the country..

This sort of thing I find intriguing, what went wrong.  To close the motorway there must have been fallout on the carriageway from the explosion, not just some loud bang, Anybody else like to postulate...
