What’s important to all of us in Moleside is that our wives, partners and friends can get involved in our extensive programme of club Visits & Outings.
Zooming Again – but only where we have to
With concerns about the recent impact of the Omicron variant of Covid Moleside will revert as long as is necessary in 2022 to holding our monthly meetings programme including our visiting speakers via our computers. And as far as is possible the magic of Zoom will also be used to continue operating some of our special interest groups.
The first of our 2022 live Outings is currently scheduled for 1 April. We can only hope that continuing concerns about Covid do not prevent us from keeping to that.
Maintaining prudent social distancing on the course the keen golfers amongst us were quick in 2021 to re-start competing for The Hackers trophy. Every month this matches individual skills against a carefully developed handicap system that insures everyone has a chance to hold the title occasionally.
And because they don’t mean having to meet indoors we are continuing our carefully managed Guided Walks that introduce many of us to the hidden delights of our local countryside.
Our Wine Appreciation group, recommenced its live wine tastings in October 2021 only to have had to call another temporary halt to our usual meetings together – even in well ventilated surroundings. We greatly value our live tasting sessions mentored by our visiting wine specialist but early in 2021 we are having to recognise the new up surge in infection levels.
Our monthly Investment Group will continue to run its actively managed – and benchmark beating – small portfolio, thanks to the power of Zoom.
Visits to Concerts have been part of Moleside’s regular programme for a long time and will continue whilst visiting concert halls in times of pandemic can be managed responsibly. London and the Home Counties provide an eclectic choice of great live music and the club makes it as simple as possible for members and our partners to enjoy the very best.
Throughout the pandemic restrictions, those of us anxious to keep up with the tech. world continued joining our monthly Computer Group sessions remotely and once again we look forward to being back meeting again in person.
This way we all have a chance to find help sorting out the IT issues and opportunities that face us all from time to time.
And our club organises a locally renowned programme of Club Holidays which we hope will spring back into life in 2022 as possibilities for foreign travel expand our horizons once more. Covid forced us to postpone carefully drawn up schedules for our 2021 visits to Italy’s Amalfi Coast and to Georgia, once part of the USSR and more recently a proud and independent national state. Both destinations are still on our visit list though Georgia looks now more like a 2023 prospect. What we know is that members and their partners will look forward to adventures that always prove to be highly enjoyable, full of informative surprises and, once again, seriously oversubscribed.
