For various reasons it has not proved possible to produce a Newsletter for this month despite assurances to the contrary given by both the Chairman and myself at the February meeting. Together with the usual absence of a January issue, it is now nearly three months since we've published any news. So, it is felt that a couple of forthcoming items should be drawn to your attention. And to confirm that the Society has not ceased to exist.

Future Meetings

Coming up this week are a couple of events which I'm sure you'll be interested in. First is the normal monthly meeting. This features Tony Haynes and, although the title is 'Trip Boats on the Basingstoke Canal', I understand he will be covering more ground (sorry, water) than this.

This also seems like a good time to remind you of our meetings for the rest of the year.

6th March 2003
Tony Haynes and 'Trip Boats on the Basingstoke Canal'.

7th March 2003
Skittles Evening at the King's Head in Hursley. See overleaf.

Skittles Evening

Angela Faull kindly agreed back in January to organise a Society Skittle Evening.





We start at 19:00

Put on your dancing shoes

The plan is to start the skittles at about 7.45pm, break for the buffet at approx 8.45pm and then continue until about 10pm. Hope that suits everyone. There will be a prize for the top score, and also a booby prize for the lowest score. Look forward to seeing you all there.

Regards Angela

This should be a great social event. If you haven't already told Angela you'll be there, then please contact her on 023 8047 6112 so she can ensure there's enough food for everyone.
