Greetings from the President.
Members who attended the September meeting were treated to a personal account given by Mr. Jean Paul Van Weerl of the differences of shelling on the east and west coasts of South Africa - Jean had sent his collection of SA. shells back to Holland but used a wide variety of slides to illustrate his talk. We would appreciate hearing other member's accounts of shelling experiences in NZ and overseas, especially if you have slides or a video of the trip.
Next Meeting: Tuesday 8th October 7:30 pm at the Museum.
Entrance by the rear Admin door between 7:15-7:30pm. We regret there can be no late admittance due to security regulations. Mystery door prizes!
Speakers:Tony and Jenny Enderby, our Poireria Editors. Their topic is “Diving NZ for the Lonely Planet” a new book due out soon. They will be showing a selection of their magnificent underwater slides taken for this project. This is a not to be missed evening!
