NW Report August/September 2010
13th August –MAG-
I attended the
Board meeting at the MAG’s new premises at
14th August MAG UK NC Meeting
. I attended the National Committee meeting, minutes available on
31st August-6th September Stormin’ the Castle

scenery terminating in a place of interest, which this year was

home of Red Rose MAG in
Manchester MAG is still doing well with a good attendance at their meetings, which are now at a new location
Over the past few months I have been spending a lot of time getting the NW MAG site up to date and it is a steep learning curve as I am no web-master. I am uploading the regional reports onto the web-site, which is why I include all activities including my involvement with meetings at Central.
