At the next steering group meeting on the 19th August I am going to bring up the notion of introducing afternoon group meetings. At first as an extra event, but then maybe to replace one of the evening sessions, most likely Friday. Due to a couple of changes in peoples lives it is likely that Friday evenings will be very low in attendance, maybe to point of zero. To enable more people to attend, afternoons may be a better option, with regard to travel and being more available to come. After all many of you are now retired and possibly the old way of doing things has in some ways run its course. If you have any feedback on this that I can feed into the meeting that would be most useful. Nothing will happen until I get back from Shasta in October.
