May 2023

One of out own members Stu Russell gave a most interesting, intriguing and professional talk about a little know event that occurred in Australia some years ago.  I believe most of his audience had never hear about it.  I will not reveal what it was about but if you ever get the chance to hear his talk again - take it.  It is very worthwhile!
