  • Valerie

    • Film review for Megan's fundraiser. The film was Pride rue story set in the 1980's during the U.K. miners strike and the group of people that came to support them it was an awesome heartwarming and funny movie that everyone should go and see if you have the chance.

  • 5 minute speaker Bruce Gillies

    • We forget how dramatic changes happen in mind sets over time as he read a notice to shop assistants from 1854. A few excerpts read as follows: An employee who is in the habit of smoking spanish cigars, getting shaved at a barbers shop, going to dances and other such places of amusement will surely give an employer reason to be suspicious of his integrity and all round honesty. Men are given one evening a week for courting purposes and two if they go to prayer meetings regularly.  After 14 hours work spare time should be devoted to reading good literature.

    • Needless to say the British Trade Union started 13 years later.

  • Sergeant Bruce - Cam was observed looking puzzled at the bar with NZ cash.

  • John Vucjich introduced the speaker - Trish Muldrock - a World Champion power lifter.

    • Trish told us everything from her unexpected falling into the sport 18 years ago, the 3 disciplines of the sport, training regime,  equipment required, the strictness of the rules when at competitions, diet, drug testing and how she would rather not have to travel for the comps as she always misses home.

    • Her most rewarding moment is the delight that she gives others with get achievements and her funniest moment was when Kevin George once bought a piano home and asked her if she would mind giving him a hand to get it off the trailer and inside.  

    • Trish's talk was very inspiring and although I'm not inclined to want to start power lifting, it almost made one want to rush off to our local gym and actually start working on those flabby abs.

    • Helen thanked Trish for her inspiring talk about her sport, the training and everything else involved and the sacrifice that one makes when they become involved in a sport that they love.

  • Closure Noel

    • Listening to Trish goes to show if you put your mind to something you will achieve it but a word of advice it might be a good idea to delay any visions you may have of space travel for a while.
