2018 May - Dr Christian H-C.
What a glorious day we had today.
Clear skies, mild temperatures, barely any clouds in sight.
To the best of my counting there was about 25 members in attendance, including a few new faces.
Lashings of tasty food, salads, cakes, cheeses, crackers and several cheese cakes.
I have to say the home made treats and salads went down well indeed.
Wines, tea, coffee.
Enough to keep everyone very happy.
Once everyone was fed and watered we sat down and listened to The Good Doctor ( HA ! See what I did there :p ) describe his systems details before playing some of those old black plastic spinny thingamajigs.
After a few LP's the group broke up into the normal smaller groups where some listened more while others sampled the various cakes and salads while chatting about everything from active crossovers, digital filtering, cables, and everything else possible that could be discussed.
We were even visited briefly by a Queen parrot. ;) - Gender joke -
Thank you to Peter for tending the BBQ.
And Many thanks to Dr Christian and his family for allowing us into their beautiful home amongst the trees.
