During the summer months, I had moments of pessimism about how well we would function in the new season without being able to meet at Avoncroft. Well, how wrong could I be. Our Zoom meetings have been a huge success – the standard of presenters and content has been second to none. Our membership number is about to reach 60 (still one of the largest clubs in the MCPF region), and close to three quarters of our members tune in on a Tuesday evening, with many more catching up on Youtube afterwards. The level of participation is higher than it has ever been in my time as a member. It is likely that social distancing is with us for some time time yet – this gives us even more to look forward to on a Tuesday night, as there are so few social outlets available to us at the minute.
This week we have our first competition of the year. We already know that our PDI competitions are just as successful by Zoom as they have been in the past at Avoncroft. The number of entries is high and I wish good luck to everyone who has entered.
See you all tomorrow.
