Hi Everyone,
NEXT WEEKS GUEST SPEAKER- Vivian Armstrong, her topic is alder abuse.
First of all, to all our members that are either sick or on special treatments, we all wish you well, take care and if you need us for anything, please ask.
At This week’s meeting we had 2 guest speakers and 2 possible new members, once we fixed the overhead projector cable, we could show the slides from the guest speakers.
The 2 possible members were brought to the club by Roger and Harry, one said he would be coming next week, great sign.
We did not do Directors or Members reports this week, Peter wanted the Directors to tell the members and guests what was discussed at board level and were we had allocated our money for this month, so each one would stand up and say how much and were it was going.
Peter was also asked by Ray BB and Roger to try and get members to put there name down for the Car Raffle, as this is the last week, need to give it a really good shot. Unfortunately, due to now ripping up all our floor tiles and replacing the kitchen and commitments in Melbourne l can only do limited time selling tickets, l apologize for not helping more but l have had a very busy year.
I would also like to personally thank Col Byatt and Mark Long for there efforts in there 2 projects, they completed them with a fantastic result, the whole club is grateful for the effort you both put in. thank you.
We are all in this together—and together, we will Be the Inspiration. (A quote from Barry Rassin ).
                  BE THE INSPIRATION.

Seagents session- None this week.
Geoff Taylor and Ian MacIntosh
Ian got up and spoke first about Chuuck Lagoon, it’s a group of small islands used by the Japanese during the 2nd world war, it was used as there base to attack northern Australia, Darwin and Broome were there targets, Ian and Geoff  had a good slide show of the hospital and an google earth look at the whole islands, they also had underwater shots of a lot planes that were sunk, these planes were shot down just after they took of, there were also some planes that had run of the end of the run way, due to inexperienced pilots, they now only land there once a week using more experienced pilots, the sea life including fish and coral were very good to see, the depth went to 60 meters, Ian and Geoff went to 30 meters only, as they had to stop at certain depths to stop getting the bens, they said it was a very expensive cost if you did get the bens.
The islands had sections built all around them to stop incoming ships from attacking the Japanese fleet, one of the islands was made for aircraft take of and landings, it took 10 years to do.
The Japanese had sent a crew over to remove all the human remains from the sunken aircraft and sent back to Japanese, Ian said he saw a human bone while diving as well as Sarky bottles and other relicks.
Geoff said it still wasn’t safe to wonder around over there in certain places, but they both really enjoyed the experience.
Please enjoy the picks supplied by Ian and Geoff.
