Last night our clubrooms were open for the first time in several weeks, but having to observe covid-enforced reduced numbers, maximum 10 people.

We also had the pleasure of a VIP in town - Alan Pearce ("KiwiAlan") stranded in NZ due to lockdown so he came along to check things out.

Very relaxing en enjoyable night had by all. Unfortunately no layouts were up and running but it was great to just have some hobby presence.

Photo from left shows Kevin Stevens who is our Clubroom Manager, Julian Ashford looks after our Goods for Sale, then Dave Biggs (" Bigdaddynz Offline "), our esteemed guest Alan (" kiwiAlan Offline ", and John Woodall (" mmrcnzjohn Offline ")

Was great to see you again Alan and if you can make it along again in a couple of weeks either Friday night or Saturday and we are not maxed out with numbers you are most welcome

I did manage to get a haircut. Now I am down at Blenheim for a week to see my youngest sister before starting the long haul back to the UK.

Thanks to the MMRC for the evening, even though there was no trains running.

No need to rush back Alan. I'd stay in a safe and civilised country until it's all over if I were you.

Best wishes, keep well

And with the gathering limits now raised some club activity is starting to return.

The Exhibition layout is also back up on its feet so if you can make it along again Alan before you leave that would be great.

Much as I would like to, I can't afford to, and anyway all my model train stuff is over there.

i guess I will get some time in on the hobby anyway as we will need to self isolate for two weeks.

We had some of the Gauge 1 modules up yesterday doing some work on them. There were also discussions regarding modifications and improvements to some modules, mainly Tim's ones.

I left a toolbag in the clubrooms with quick fix clamps in it, so will have to go pick those up sometime.
