People seemed to turn up a little later than usual for the first meet of the year at Brian’s but in the end we had a good turnout.

Luckily the temperature had dropped from the highs of earlier in the week so we had a comfortable afternoon.

Except for the turntable Brian has built everything himself so he had quite a bit to explain about the electronics but wisely skipped the “ultra-detail” for us non-experts.


Most types of music got played during the afternoon and I must say everything sounded “jolly” good.
