Coming Soon: Set Subject Competition C (Old Faces)

In one week’s time we will be trying something completely new and having a club meeting by Zoom teleconference! George Todd will present the results of our final set subject competition of the 2019/2020 season. Click the following links for a reminder of what happened in the previous two competitions:

09 January 2020 (Set Subject Competition – Travel)

13 February 2020 (Set Subject Competition – Wildlife)

George Todd,  Joe Fowler,  Anne Yeomans and Malcolm Roberts are all in a strong position. Join the competition to find out who will be picking up the trophy, and who will be judging next year.

In a few days I will send a meeting invitation directly to all members (it won’t be posted on the web site). If you would like to join and have not heard anything by Wednesday please email StevenMBeard @ aol.com and I will send you the invitation. In the meantime, you can prepare for the meeting by downloading the Zoom client from

https://www.zoom.us/download#client_4meeting

You can install a client on a computer or mobile device (but a computer with a large screen will give you the best view of the images). You will need sound to hear George, but a camera is optional. You don’t need to sign up with Zoom to join the club meeting. You can test that your computer can connect to a meeting (and check your sound is working) by clicking on this link:

I look forward to seeing you all again and trying out this new “meeting from home” format. This time everybody will be responsible for making tea!

SPF Insurance & Club Outings

At the AGM we referred to the post made a year ago which clarified the club’s insurance coverage under SPF policy. To save members having to delve back through the archives, here is a link to that original message:

https://musselburghcc.wordpress.com/2017/04/30/4568/

If you are arranging a group trip on behalf of the club (i.e. a trip where all club members are invited), please contact the SPF General Secretary or the SPF Treasurer, as described in the original message.

 

SPF Ins & Club Outings

Following on from the AGM when a number of questions were raised with regard to Insurance coverage under  the SPF policy. The document below is from the SPF, as can be seen if you are intending on organising a group trip on behalf of the club outwith the club listings on the syllabus then either SPF General Secretary or the SPF Treasurer  should be emailed.

Initially it was proposed for the Club Secretary or Chairman to notify the SPF, however in light of the procedure now clarified I see no reason why the onus should not now rest with the members organising the trip/outing.

The SPF can be contacted as follows, which will open a message box:
