Webcam and new anemometer

The PC running the webcam hasn’t been working for a few weeks. The issue has been resolved, for now, and there are to be some discussions in the near future to address the reliability issues and improvements generally.

The anemometer on the weather station has been replaced as it has been under-reading the wind speed for some time.

2015 AGM Moved to Sunday 15th November

Unfortunately the original 2015 AGM date, the 8th November, was scheduled on Remembrance Sunday. Those wishing to attend both a remembrance service and the AGM may have found this difficult.

With that in mind the decision was taken at the last committee meeting to postpone the AGM by one week to Sunday the 15th November

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but the decision to move dates seemed the most appropriate course of action.

We hope to see you all there.

Web site status

As many people have noticed there is an intermittent problem with the Webcam display. Unfortunately this appears to be a hardware problem.

We have added a performance enhancement to the website which should, in most instances, speed up the browsing experience of users when navigating the site.

As always, if anyone has any suggestions for the website please get in touch via the page or chat to a committee member at the club.
