The meeting was an Open Forum to discuss future direction and projects
Chair Stephen did a reasonable job of keeping the rabble under control, but he did make a basic mistake in introducing himself as "El Presindito" and may have accidentally dobbed himself in as the next President Elect
Thanks Irish for the photos - see them all
Mark gave us three minutes on Interact short for INTERnational ACTion
Very relevant given the formation of a new Club at Caloundra City Private School sponsored by RC Caloundra

We all could use more calm in our lives. 
By following the simple advice I heard on a Dr. Phil show, I have  finally found  inner peace. Dr. Phil proclaimed the way to achieve inner peace is to  finish all the things you have started. 
So I looked around my house to see things I started and hadn't finished; and, before leaving the house this morning, I finished  off a  bottle of Merlot, a bottle of  Cardonay, a  bole of Baileys, a butle of  Kehuha, a pockage of  Tim Toms, tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valum scriptins, the res of the Chesescke, some saltins an a bax a cholates.
