MC'd for the first time by Keith Harrison following the very sad loss of Richard Taylor last year,I'm sure everyone who was there will agree that this was a quite exceptional weekend. There were four stunning speakers on Saturday during the day and a hugely entertaining after-dinner speaker in the evening.The auction on Sunday produced the usual crop of bargains but also some very high prices for the more desirable items. Sunday afternoon was rounded off by the professional band, The Hula Bluebirds who played just about every style of music imaginable and some that weren't, such as the Dambusters March played on a ukelele! It was also heartening to see so many first time attendees including some of our newest members.
I append a few pictures below to bring back memerories for those who were there and a flavour of the weekend for those who weren't.

If Keith was at all apprehensive about his first AGM in charge, he had no reason to be. The annual Malvern weekend gets better and better, and as Tim rightly says the standard of the presentations this year was simply superb. See you next year!

Roger.
