Members Evening on ZOOM Wednesday 14 July — non-members welcome

CRSC has organised a Zoom get-together on the evening of Wednesday 14 July so that everyone, near and far, can stay in touch during what traditionally was a long, fallow period for the Club between April and October.

The meeting, open to all, will feature short presentations by four members — Mark Nicolson, Cameron Wilson, Kay Hutchison and Graeme Phanco. Through their individual selection of photographs and personal commentary, each will bring an aspect of their own enthusiasm to the evening.

Even if you are not a CRSC member, we hope you will join us for what promises to be a relaxed and entertaining show.

And we look forward to your own ‘live’ conversation and comments before and after the four presentations, to be mediated by CRSC President Andy Anderson.

You can log in from 7pm for a formal start at 7.30.

The Zoom coordinates are:

Meeting ID: 835 4688 5144
Passcode: 448137

Mark Nicolson, who lives on the island of Lewis, has kept social media addicts in touch with all the different CalMac ferries visiting Stornoway during the past few months, resulting in some surprising permutations.

Cameron Wilson has spent many holidays based at Hunter’s Quay and is an avid photographer of all kinds of ferries up and down the west coast.

Kay Hutchison, a publisher now based in the south of England, has known the Clyde and its steamers for most of her life, and promises to bring to our attention a previously little appreciated aspect of the career of her father, Captain Robin Hutchison.

Graeme Phanco is best known for his lifelong association with Millport and his steadfast support for everything to do with paddle steamer Waverley. He has some great photographs to show.

A ‘members night’ by Zoom is another first for CRSC, and we hope you will support it and welcome our four volunteer speakers.

Join CRSC for £10 here, and get all the benefits and the buzz of being a member.
