Speakers and Displays

As you can see, half of the speakers came from overseas and were delighted to meet a throng of members at the meetings.

You will also notice that a number of speakers had displays of live material in the Competitions section to complement their talk and, of course, John Horsey and David Turner had recently published books on their topic.

members who are logged into the site can see copies of most of the presentations using the links below.
