6 March 2017: We welcomed Graeme Plank one of two tutors at the Tam O'Shanter Club in Christchurch. It was a catch-up opportunity for Emma and Kate who both stooged (being a dancing volunteer for teachers in training or in examinations) for Graeme at the 2016 Christchurch Summer School and for Joan at the 2014 Dunedin Summer School. Graeme was in Wellington for a few days installing a LIDAR cloud ranger, a rain RADAR, a time lapse camera and meteorological balloon system on the Tangaroa.

Past members Hisako and Ian Ewing were in Wellington visiting family and made sure to visit Club on 20 August 2018. Hisako and Ian were Johnsonville members in 2005-06, before moving to Australia. It brought back good memories for those of us at club on Monday who were also dancing in those days - John H, John M, Kristin, Pat (who danced at Island Bay then) and Rod. In this photo taken in 2005, Hisako is at the far right of the set. Rod is on crutches following a knee operation and John M organising the music behind was also on crutches!
