3 Wise Monkeys Trophy Games Night with the TASIs for the
March Meeting. They will meet us here and I hope we muster a
strong turnout to defend our Title. Smally eats will be
provided on the night. This year, we have agreed to support
Plymouth Aquarium has got back to the Social Sec with regard
to holding our Ladies Night at their venue. At this point,
it doesn’t look financially viable for the Association to
hold it there.
An update for the constitution, GI Walker and Phipps have
been working hard on this and it looks as if there will be a
draft of the constitution on the streets at the April
meeting. It will give everyone a chance to read it, before
we vote on it at the AGM.

Many of the children who come to the club are on the Autism
Spectrum and so we can help by buying specialist sensory
equipment to use at the club. Things like adapted toys for
balance and gross motor skills, expanding the model railway
they’re building, buying some remote control cars etc.

I will start with the cannon. It was made by a master model
maker but not a master business man and he went bust. All
his stuff sat under a house and I got at it. All the good

I set up for the teaching in India I thank you, it went
well. If you think it rains here, you ain’t seen nothing, I
saw goats drowning in the street because they were not quick
enough to get under a tree. The girls school we were at has
gone from 1500 to 2,000. The school was designed for 450.
Classes are being taught under trees, because they can’t fit
inside. The IT equipment I put in last time surprisingly is
still there and working. We are going back again next

book a holiday in Sri Lanka at Christmas time. Being a
country of 80% Buddhist you would think they wouldn’t
celebrate Christmas but no they love Christmas with a
passion. A full moon was on Christmas eve so they get a day
