2023 - March - Cam and David.
Sorry, finally, work and all that :)
The day was good, as it always is.
Sorta overcast, not too hot, slight breeze.
Despite being a sunday about 15 people showed up. Yay us :)
We started with party pies, snag rolls, steamed dimsims, moving onto beef and chicken dishes, couscous, salad, various bread rolls.
Deserts were various cakes (including the cheese type) and chips etc etc.
And red wine, glug glug :D
After a lot of gum flapping and feasting, we all went in to sample the main system.
We previewed a few minutes of a movie to test out the atmos system.
Ziiiiiii - went the bullets - iiiinggggggg.
Then came the more usual sitting and listening.
Over time we evaporated back outside to chin wag some more.
Overall, a rather pleasant day.
These meetings cannot happen without the help and support of our members.
Support your club, host a meeting :D
So we all owe Cam and David a huge thank you for allowing us into their home, cooking and serving food, allowing us to experience the systems they get to enjoy every day.
Cam, David, Thank You :)
