Some excellent news in relation to the Men's Shed. The Shed coordinator, Tom Perrigo, has reported unanimous approval  for the Shed and the location by the City of Melville council noting further consultation with the Tennis Club. They have long term plans to put more courts on the site recommended by the City.  In the meantime Tom is commencing the process of establishing an Incorporated Association and will get the interested people together in early September to discuss the way forward.

Directors and Chairs

Liz Palmer reported on a very successful Fellowship lunch at Millbrook Winery last Monday, especially as former member Murray McKay and his wife Lesley joined in so everyone could help celebrate Murray’s 65th birthday. Great suggestion Chris Whelan!
Lorri Brazier and Steve Perry are keen to have more members visit Ray Wales in his new ‘home’ at Regent’s Gardens, Marmion St Booragoon, next to the Mt Pleasant Baptist Church.  (Steve is currently house-sitting Ray’s old home in Strome Rd.)  Ray’s suite is B40.  Ian Fairnie and Helen Jones visited him Sunday morning and Ray was in good spirits.  Ian has taken over Ray’s Music Appreciation class at Trinity School for Seniors, but Ray still suggests suitable music and provides CDs from his extensive collection. 
Clive and Jan are enjoying their holiday after some intitial concerns getting through Hong Kong.  They have shared some of their holiday photos so far and you can view them by clicking link.
Helen and Ian Fairnie celebrated their son Callum’s selection next month as Artist In Residence at the Con Artist Collective on the Lower East Side, New York City.
Other Dollars came from the usual sources including Max Cunnington, this week’s tosser and John Henderson the wine winner.  
Some dollars coming for our next meeting on Tuesday.
DRONING ON - this week's presentation by Leanne McKenzie
One definition of a drone is a long monotonous speech – but Leanne’s presentation was anything but!
Nikola Tesla premiered the first remote controlled pilotless aircraft in 1989.  Nowadays they range from toys for big boys sending back videos, to being used by the military to ‘take out’ an enemy, and more positively, delivering medical supplies to remote areas, inspections, mapping and so on,
Leanne brought along several examples of drones. 
Use of ones larger than 250gm is strictly controlled by CASA regulations and there are big penalties involved, so if you are planning on buying one better look up those regulations before you do so. 
And get trained – that’s one of the things that civil engineer Leanne can help with.  To operate a drone commercially you will need a pilot’s licence, they are not allowed to fly above 120m, and must remain in sight at all times.
What is certain, however, is that the future is even more exciting because of drones.

Thought one
From the “Naked Chef” Jamie Oliver, who has lost all his restaurants, quoted in Monday's Australian Financial Review:
Caring about ethical sources of food and fair treatment of staff was not a lucrative business modelIn (this) business... it's not a level playing field.
Which begs the question, is it ever a level playing field in business?
Thought two 
From the Australian Financial Review on Tuesday:
Bloomberg has reported that ‘companies belonging to the US Business Roundtable have made a commitment to "investing in our employees" and compensating them "fairly and providing important benefits", and fostering "diversity and inclusion, dignity and respect".  Likewise, the companies in the group have ‘promised to deal fairly with suppliers and back the communities in which they operate, and "protect the environment by embracing sustainable practices across our businesses".
‘This shift reflects what many Australian corporate leaders are going through as they work to burnish their social and environmental credentials in the face of growing shareholder activism for change on topics ranging from same sex marriage to climate change.’
