WEEKEND WORKSHOP Updated 15 June 2017

We've just made minor changes to the timetable for Workshop this coming weekend on Magnetic Island.

Don't miss Recorders in Arcadia! After a break in 2016, the Weekend Workshop is back for 2017 on the weekend of 16-18 June. This year we are having a residential workshop at the Arcadia Village Motel on Magnetic Island led by Ruth Wilkinson with the theme 'Dancing Through the Ages'.

The monthly workshops continue in 2017 on the afternoon of the 3rd Sunday of each month start this year on 19 February. Note that the April workshop has been moved to the 4th Sunday 23 April to avoid clashing with Easter and the monthly workshop in June is being replaced by the Weekend Workshop on Magnetic Island. The timetable has been posted to the Calendar page and details such as location and format are on the Monthly Workshop page.


The February 2016 edition of the Newsletter has been posted to the Newsletter page, where you can download it and previous editions as pdf files.


At the 2015 AGM members completed a membership survey about the Society and its activities. Nicky, our treasurer, compiled the results and this is available as a pdf document. The committee has used it as the basis for revising our activities for 2016 and implemented major changes.
