GENERAL BUSINESS: Meeting times have been changed to 11 am to 1 pm. Ginko at 2 pm.

Bookings for remainder of 2012 and 2013. See program below for the remainder of 2012. The two ginko meetings have been scheduled for the afternoon. Let us see what the attendance is like for that time of day.

2013: After feedback from group members via email it has been decided to make four bookings at the Box Factory Community Centre for 2013: February, May, August and November. There will also be an April meeting with Beverley George and Mariko (Japanese tanka poet) at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.

Any other business: Challenges. Lyn will add some new topics, but there was a very poor voting response for the last challenges (only two members voted), not sufficient to put up a new showcase at this stage. There were also no entries for the June Challenge. Challenges will only continue if there are entries.

General Program of meeting: Lee Bentley distributed material on rengay and discussed the difference between renku and rengay. Those attending the meeting then wrote several collaborative rengay, working in pairs. More on rengay here:
