Hi All,

Please bring along any projects that you have been working on, along 
with a healthy curiosity, and maybe some off-the-wall ideas and suggestions.

Door will be open at 6:30pm, but earlier if situation permits. The 
evening will start with an informal get together. At around 7:15 we move 
onto the talks-from-the-front.

Feel free to forward this notice to anyone who you think might be 
interested in visiting us : "as well as an interest in all things 
robotic, we have a membership with interests ranging from radio, 
embedded computing (including Arduino, Raspberry Pi), FPGA design, solar 
power, and electric vehicles, to name but a few".

As usual, guests are most welcome, so please bring friends. Also, this 
is a very low-key event with people arriving and leaving as they feel fit.

Graham will be talking about some of his space acquisitions, including 
bits-and-bobs associated with the Saturn V, and possibly Apollo projects.

Robin will continue his talk about STM32 debug, specifically the 
Embedded Trace Macrocell.

I may be unable to attend because of a close loss, so Andrew and Graham 
will be running the show. Please be kind to them, they haven't done it 
for a while, as it were.

Best wishes, Mark

PS if you have any copper wire or cable, or scrap aluminium that you 
could like to donate, please consider bringing it along to the meeting. 
Our host club has regular runs to the scrap yard, and this is a real 
money-spinner for them.

Happy to accept electrical/electronic donations for the trading table, 
as long as the equipment does not contain significant amounts of glass, 
plastic or wood. Such examples are CRT TVs/monitors, printers, or 
document scanners.

All proceeds from the evening go directly to our host club, Christchurch 
Amateur Radio club, NZART BR05.
