Watch this page for up-dates & pictures of our monthly Club activities during 2020.
January Workshop - A great turnout for the first meeting for 2020. The topic was clock and watch movement holders, where members brought in their holders, be they bought or hand made. Most were the latter with some ingenious constructions. Show and Tell covered new designs from Tony and Allan with a presentation from Trevor on Zig Zag or Convoy clocks. Our next meet will be the AGM.
Information on our next proposed meet. The decision to cancel the August meeting has been made. It seems unwise to have a meeting in the current environment. We remain hopeful for next month.
February AGM - a good attendance. Alan our President relayed that the club was in good health with new members joining and a small grant enabling the purchase of some much needed club equipment. We also welcomed Trevor, a new committee member.
Show and Tell saw Dick present his home made mainspring winder, Paul and Tony discussed micro-brand watches a Panzera
from Sydney, an Aragon from Florida and C Ward from the UK. Cameron also spoke for Labanda his new place of employment.
March Workshop - Essential tools. A good turnout for this meet. Many members brought along tools helpful for working with clocks and watches. Some worthwhile hints shared. The morning session was very busy with many repair jobs on hand.
Show and Tell - Dick brought a WW1 watch, Alan had two wooden turned finials and Trevor discussed Preservation & Restoration with a Power Point on the Rothmans Clock Tower in Motueka.
