Meeting: Thursday 9th July - Wednesday 15th July 2015

President's Prattling ...

  I have been busy this past week with my business, Rotary stuff and local village things. Having had friends over all weekend boating on the Broads and BBQ, drinking and socialising I feel dead beat. On the Rotary front we have now got some money in from most of the members and I have even had acouple of enquiries about joining.

I have had a very enlivening experience with two "20-somethings" wanting to start up a Rotaract Club each in Norwich [18-30 year old Rotarians]  - the enthusiasm of these guys was amazing. One is already a Rotaractor in Ghana and is setting up a University club in the UEA and the other is the grandson our next speaker and was inspired to set a community based club for young professionals and students in Norwich City. He took me by surprise when he said he had 20 members signed up already and was talking to about 8 more ... the energy of these guys makes me envious. 

The Ghanaian student, Abdul is going to be one of our speakers in September whne he has got his dissertaion out of the way ... talking about his life, his ambitions and his country. ... and no doubt Rotaract.

Club Happenings ...

Sam Sweiry is busy beavering away at building interest down in Eastbourne with our Sussex eGroup. We are still in discussion with Guy Brindle in the South West of England starting an eSatellite club attached to us as the sponsor host club. Ian Kerr is progressing towards charter very soon with our daughter eClub up in Scotland - the eClub of Aviation.

Even though our "Rotary Ride" cycle ride is over it is not for our member Les Smith .. he is in training for and well on the way to raising at least £500 for the British Lung Association and his page is at Virgin Giving http://bit.ly/1MmX622 - so if you can promote this through your contacts that would be could, especially on social media.

Keith is going to pull together a short quesitonaire to gain an idea as to what you want the club to be like and what you can offer in terms of making it meaningfull and fun. The aim is not to burden anyone but to put our thinking caps on for sharing ideas and getting to knwo more about each other and what makes us tick.

This Week's Speaker ... 15th July

Adventures in the Marathon De Sables by Wayne Singleton

A "feature" length special guest talk about Wayne's experiences running this race - the toughest foot race on earth! This meeting talk is longer than our normal 20 minutes one due to the nature of this fascinating talk. [64 minutes in totla with questions - but well worth a watch!]

Time for Rotary ...

August is membership month in the Rotary calendar so we need to be thnking about how we can build on our membership and seek to get people we know interested in joining us. We need to get an idea as to what, you as members, want from the club and how you can help to achieve it.

We probably should now be thinking about how we can engage in "doing Rotary" and come up with inventive and fun ideas that we can share in and make a difference in our communities. It is not about reinventing the wheel so have a sneak around at what ohters are doing and pinch some ideas too!

Time to Enjoy ...

Competitive Foursome makes an enjoyable performance of "The Summer", composed by Antonio Vivaldi, which becomes the stage for a musical competition. Salut Salon fight acrobatically and with a special sense of humor -- this is a Salut Salon classic, a live recording from the movie "Salut Salon.

Time to Learn ...

from Silicon Valley's member Lisa Highfill – Search Using Google Maps
  Take a look at some of the cool ways of doing searches within Google Maps. Very cool!
