Book Club Inaugural Meeting – September 19

Amy Steele Kempster is setting up a book club. An inaugural meeting is set for Tuesday September 19th at 2pm, to decide on how to run the club and to find out how much interest there is.

They need to decide on things like:

  • When should the meetings be (likely on Tuesdays at 2pm since that’s available) and how often (monthly, weekly, bi-weekly)?
  • What sort of books should they read? Fiction, non-fiction, or specific genres. Or have the members choose books on a rotation basis.
  • Should they take turns reading and discussing a book, particularly if multiple copies aren’t available, or wait for everyone to have read it before discussing?

Please show your interest by coming to the inaugural meeting.

Fieldhouse Unbooked during Summer – Reminder

We’ve had a few summer requests, so I’ve updated the web pages and written this note to make it a bit more obvious that there are no field house bookings during the summer (July and August). We’ll start accepting bookings for September in September at the latest. As usual, see for more about the field house, the online booking form, and contact info for the booking coordinator.

P.S. Is there much demand for the field house when it is so nice outside? Well, except all those rainy days this year. Could be a topic for the next executive meeting, if interested people want to come and bring it up. No, the summer field house topic, not the fixing the weather topic! That one is way outside our jurisdiction. 🙂
