Strut Meetings / Events 2020
20th May 2020 'Virtual' Strut Meeting - ZOOM meeting 7:30pm

The Strut Meeting for May was to have been a GASCo Safety evening, but because of obviously reasons this has had to be cancelled, although hopefully this will be rescheduled for later this year or early next year.

So now in its place on the same day and time, we will be trying something a little different and new. Using ZOOM Video Conferencing, Tony Razzell, Coordinator of the East Midlands Strut, will be giving us a presentation on Building his Nicollier NH700 Menestrel.

If you are not sure of what one of these is, here is a photo of the one build by Richard Teverson at Boxted.

Tony is already adept in giving his talk over ZOOM as he has not only done so to his own strut, but also last week to the Kent Strut, which I sat in on to see how it all went.

ZOOM meetings can be attended from an APP on your phone or tablet, although they are also accessible via your PC/laptop using a web browser which on first use will install a browser add-on. It doesn't matter if you don't have a webcam (some may want to switch that off anyway!!) or even a microphone - you can just watch and listen, although comments can be made via the chat feature.

As many may not have used ZOOM before, Mick will schedule a dummy meeting a week or so before which people can join for a few minutes to get set up and confirm it's working for them so we don't have lots of hassle on the night. We can also help out on a one on one basis if required.

So watch out for further updates and please contact Martyn Steggalls () or Mick Gill () if you have any questions.
