Twist Grip – June 2016

A word from the Chair

“That will be Christmas sorted, then”

5.0/5 rating 1 vote

My theme for this month is:

“That will be Christmas sorted, then.”

Yet again, by way of a confession I forgot that what I wrote last month was the December edition. So to catch up, by the time you read this Christmas will have passed and you may well be recovering from the New Year celebrations.

An EDAM sweatshirt, anyone?

Yes, some people do work up a sweat on a bike

5.0/5 rating 1 vote

We are currently sounding out the interest for a sweatshirt type fleece with the EDAM logo on it which would be suitable for riding your bike in. A few people have already expressed an interest but we need at least fifteen to twenty people to make it worthwhile going ahead with an order. David McCutcheon will have a sample in due course, please contact him if you like the sound of this.

EDAM 2015 Sick Kids Toy Run

After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing with dates due to a number of reasons, myself and Vicki from the Sick Kids Friends Foundation finally arranged the morning of Sunday 6th December to be the next EDAM Sick Kids Toy Run.  I then tried to get the message out as quickly as possible as there was only a couple of weeks until the day itself.

Plockton 2016: Saturday 14th May to Monday 16th May

Once again Jill and Bill Fulton will be organising a long weekend in Plockton

Plockton is a National Trust conservation village where palm trees grow outdoors; it lies on a sheltered inlet off Loch Carron. It may also be familiar to some as the village of Loch Dubh in the Hamish McBeth TV series.

New impressions in the editorial hot-seat

New year, new editors

5.0/5 rating 1 vote

As the new year gets under way, the change in editorship that Phil Holt announced last month, has now taken place. I have spent the last days of the old year and the first of the new finding my way around the disconcertingly complex edifice that Phil built up during his time as editor. If nothing else, that has given me a glimpse into the expertise and sheer hard work that he and his staff at Web Foundry have put into this newsletter, indeed the whole EDAM website. Nice one, Phil – I'm sure that the whole membership will join me in thanking you for what you have done.

Before I continue with acknowledgements, don't forget to browse through the tabs on the navigation bar above, not everything can be included on the front page!
