You will all be aware that the Privacy Act is changing, and the new law comes into force on 1 December 2020.

Choosing a Sound System
8 October 2020
I have recently had a few enquiries from clubs looking to make changes to their sound system, so thought I would put together a quick spiel explaining some of the things to consider.
I will try to keep it as low tech as possible, but it is impossible to talk sound systems without some understanding of the terms involved. Let’s start with speakers…
Things to consider when purchasing a new projector
1 October 2020
First thing to think about is the room size where you want to use it. If its not a large space, you may want to consider a LED screen mounted to the wall instead. TV screen prices have come down a lot in the past few years with The Warehouse selling 50” TVs for less than $500, and 70” for less than $1000. A TV will usually provide a better picture (and sound), especially in brighter environments, and you don’t have to worry about a separate white screen to project upon or how to mount the projector somewhere suitably distanced from the wall.

Many years ago, a group of members of the Invercargill Workingmen’s Club (also known as IWMC) wanted to do something for Hospice, an organization that many of our community have family frequent. Their idea was novel; a spud competition, but not just any spud was to be grown.
Club Staff Supporting Members
26 August 2020
Upper Hutt Cossie Club staff recently donated $20 each to provide 100 free meals for the Club’s elderly members. From the Club’s over 70 years membership database 50 members were drawn randomly and were delivered two meals each in late July.
The generous gesture by the staff was in appreciation of the Club’s support of staff throughout the Covid lockdown with all staff receiving 100% of their wages and none being made redundant. Previously staff had donated goods to the local Foodbank.
