Tuesday night (17 January) will see the society’s first ‘fully virtual’ (i.e. Webex-only) meeting of the year.
The topic of discussion will be about what members would like to do during construction evenings, the first of which for 2023 will be on 24 January.
If you have any specific kits to suggest, either cheap and easy ‘one-nighters’ (which can be finished in a single evening) available on the likes of Amazon, or something a bit more serious, like the items offered by Kanga Products, please let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the relevant weblinks by mid Monday evening. (Please suggest short YouTube videos regarding particular kits, if you know of any.)
Something that you may have noticed on the G8SRS webpage is the PayPal ‘Donation’ button. It was set up, mainly, to provide a convenient means for members to chip in and help cover the cost of our Webex subscription, which is greater than £200 per year. The PayPal Donate function can even be used by those who don’t have their own PayPal accounts; credit or debit cards will do. If each member using Webex contributed £1 (net of fees) per virtual meeting, we will be well on the way to covering the cost of the system. PayPal takes its cut, of course: £0.30 flat fee per transaction + 2.9% of the transaction value. So, you may wish to pay for a few meetings in advance, to reduce the relative value of the commission. Please note that PayPal can facilitate either a one-off or a regular amount; that option will be given to you at some point during the payment process.
Please indicate who you are and the purpose of the donation, for audit purposes. At the stage during the payment process when the amount and card details are shown for you to confirm/change, please click ‘+ Add a note to your donation’, and enter your Callsign followed by ‘WEBEX’.
A direct link to the donate button is at the following web address, to be copied and pasted into your web browser:
Now that I’ve forced you to read through the donation instructions, you can have the Webex log-in details….:
