Great meeting, where we continued planning events. With some great ideas from Vernon, we designed "business cards" for club members, to give out to anyone interested in our activities. So we won't have a PR meeting on Thursday 8 August.

Hallo to ICB committee and activity leaders,
you are welcome to join Gary and Vernon and me at meetings to write the September - October Newsletter.

Also we want to discuss public relation and membership drives, as we need new members. So I appeal to event leaders: ask those who attend their events to join the club. We will consider restricting attendance at ICB events to members only! as we do for wine tasting, book groups, and for some special events.

We need dates for cafes in September and October. We suggest these, please leaders tell us if you want a different date
Sept 5, Oct 3 Spanish
Sept 3, Oct 8 Italian,
Sept 11, Oct 16 French
Sept 12, OCt 17 English
no German cafe any more

The Club meetings, for which we will have guest speakers, are
Tuesday 27. August
Tuesday 24. September
Tuesday 15. Oktober

In August I would like to have Michael Tschanz again, talking about trips,
plus a guest talking about Iran and another Azerbaijan and another Uzbekistan
Michael offers a great tour to Baku from 13.-20. November and return via Georgia
and is looking for participants. I suggest for September Stefan Bogdanov on health plus
one or two speakers on health and wellness topics.

Register for TGIF and Buskers soon! It will be a great evening.

RSVP for attendance at any of the committee meetings. Add details in a comment.
