Club business began with the AGM where the current committee were re-elected with Brian Watt remaining as chairman.

Ian's presentation was a social document of Aberdeenshire lives in such places as Clatt, Ryhnie,Oyne, Insch, Cumminston, Gamrie, Rosehearty, Pennan to name a few..

A confirmed Deltioligist (postcard collector) Ian modestly described his evening show as a mere tip of the iceberg.

After his talk members enjoyed the opportunity to have a 'swap shop' of their card collections.

The club meets in Kintore on the second Monday of the month.
