WEEK OF MAY 23rd
Meeting of Monday, 23rd May
This week we were back at the Sports Club with Gilbert catering.
President-Elect and Past President x 2 Paul Weston was in the chair. 13 members attended and no guests this week.
We had some excellent discussions including an idea from Dick Jennings to get 30 highly visible vests with Coolamon Rotary printed on them. These could be modelled on the ones that Temora RC have had made and printed in Temora:
We have received invites to a number of changeover dinners. Our own changeover dinner will take place on 4th July at the Coolamon Sport & Rec Club at our usual dinner time. See the listing of changeover dinners below, after the Diary.
Members were reminded to consider attending the premiere viewing of Top Gun/Maverick at the Forum in Wagga Wagga on 26 May at 7 pm. Tickets are $20 and net proceeds will benefit the All Ability Dragon Boat team in Wagga. [Editor’s note: Those who attending the viewing on Thursday were not disappointed; it was a gripping plotline with amazing footage of modern and vintage military aircraft. – PW]
The meeting concluded with a brief fine session led by stand-in S@A Dick, who admittedly had little advance notice to compile noteworthy fines. The raffle was won by Leslie. Members enjoyed an extended bit of fellowship after the formal proceedings concluded.
*N.B. You are always welcome to bring guests to most of our meetings, just advise Ian Jennings if you want to bring a guest along when you respond to the weekly dinner roll call!

JUST FOR LAUGHS
Answer to the last Puzzlers:
Easier one: Apologies, but this one only works with American pronunciation, in which the word ‘herb’ is pronounced ‘erb’ (for some reason, ‘herb’ and ‘herbal’ are pronounced with a silent ‘h’ in America). With that in mind, the three words are pronounced differently when their first letter is capitalised.
Harder one: The man has three daughters: one redhead, one blonde and one brunette.
This week’s puzzlers:
Easier one: A red house is made from red bricks. A blue house is made from blue bricks. A yellow house is made from yellow bricks. What is a green house made from?
Harder one: How can you boil an egg for exactly 15 minutes using a 7-minute hourglass and an 11-minute hourglass?
