2018 Autumn Flower Show

The Autumn Flower Show is to take place this coming Monday. Attached is a copy of the Flower Show Categories just in case you have not received a copy.  The show will be judged by the popular vote of members.  Don’t forget to collect you 17 red dots and 1 gold dot as you enter the Club House.

Entries will only be received between 6:30Pm and 7:15PM, the only exceptions will be for Stewards assisting in the staging of the show.  There will be an area set aside on the veranda  outside the pro shop which is on the opposite side of the building to the usual main entrance.  Access can be obtained either up the rear steps or along the front veranda leading to the rear.  It is highly recommended that you carry out as much preparation prior to your arrival as space is limited.

There will be a trading table and the last lot of books will be available for sale.

Jenny Perkins trip to South America

Here are some photos of Jenny’s recent trip to South America
The homes on the floating island on Lake Titicaca have a floor of reeds at least a meter think. Walking on them feels a bit spongy but the floor is dry. Every year or so they cut more reeds & add to it. The root of these reeds floats like a cork.
Be at Macchu Pichu on the 21st of June to enjoy the winter solstice. The rising sun will shine thru a ‘window’ space in the wall forming a triangle of sunlight on the opposite wall.
Not a nail/glue is used on all these walls…just stone on stone – quite clever really and everything is lined up with the peaks, sun & moon.
