Greetings from Crusader Isolation

28 April 2020

Well where did the last 4 weeks go and how quickly did this thing explode?

It has been interesting watching how various clubs have dealt with the situation we have found ourselves in. Some clubs have remained in close contact with members from virtual membership draws, virtual bands on a Saturday night, to virtual social gatherings of sub sections, meal deliveries to older members and staying in touch through social media.
