Club meeting - June

Hello Members and my apologies for the lateness of my reminder for the end of JUNE meeting. I trust everyone is keeping warm and well and keeping the hobby alive, there has been plenty of activity on Trade me and in local auction houses of late so there should be some great items on the NEW FINDS table this month. I would like to encourage attendance at this meeting as we have some important topics to discuss on the direction of the club and following on from the May AGM which highlighted some areas within the club that need to be discussed and voted on.
