Excellent turn out of 24 members, including a couple of guests, one
being Andrei Cotiga, the director of the Canterbury Astronomical Society
(CAS), in West Melton.

Andrei expressed interest that it might be possible to involve CHCH
robotics members in the restoration, and automation of one of the CAS

Mike Barnes turned up with a huge collection of new components,
including 100A latched relays, AT mega 8515 uPs, 2x16 LCDs and a mass of

Mike was generous enough to donate the proceeds from the sale of his
parts to the Robotics Group, all of which has been passed on to BR05 to
cover usage costs for the evening (and beyond).

$72 collected, and transferred to the BR05 account, loose change has
been held over for next month.


William gave a demo of a modified TV which accepts a VGA feed from an
older laptop. He talked the group through the modification process.

Robin Gilks talked a little about the West Melton Observatory, to give
some background.

David Bourke gave one of his spirited SMD repair talks and demos, which
(as usual) was keenly watched by all concerned.


Thanks again to MB for his generosity.
