  1. Re the Newsletter which updates me on the club activities (as I am 50% estranged). Could I request that upcoming events are given separate lines per change in events. Latest group all into 1 paragraph and where 2 or 3 events on same day is confusing. A small suggestion not a gripe. Tks for your time in compiling the info.
