 +====== MAY 2020 East Midlands ONLINE area group meeting ======
 +**Saturday 16th May 2020 from 10:00**
 +
 +This meeting will be online using Zoom.
 +
 +During our online courses, we found that breaks of 10-15 mins per hour worked well, to avoid people getting fatigued from staring at their screens, so we will plan to do the same again.
 +
 +----
 +
 +
 +**AGENDA**
 +
 +The meeting will be informal and flexible, so these are approximate times:
 +
 +  * 10:00 - Get connected, sort out any microphone/​audio/​video issues
 +  * 10:30 - Welcome, group news and Introductions
 +  * 10:45 - Fitting crystal adapter boards to CBUS modules - Graham Clark
 +  * 11:15 - Tea/coffee break (make your own!)
 +  * 11:30 - Update on my projects - Pete Brownlow
 +  * 12:00 - QnA and anyone looking for advice and help on any projects
 +  * 12:30 - Lunch Break
 +  * 13:30 - Kit locker update from Judi Rastal
 +  * 14:00 - Continuation of QnA and advice clinic, until everyone has had enough!
 +
 +
 +----
 +
 +
 +For the QnA sessions, if you have built something and would like any help and advice, please be ready to wave it at the camera, and we'll see what help and advice we can give from afar.
 +
 +If you would like to join in, please send an email to eastmids@merg.org.uk or post a message in the East Midlands Area group section of the MERG forum. I will add you to the list and, during the Friday before the meeting, you will get a reply with Zoom link and meeting id.

 +====== APRIL 2020 East Midlands ONLINE area group meeting ======
 +
 +Here is the agenda for our Easter online area group meeting.
 +
 +**Saturday 11th April 2020 from 10:00**
 +
 +This meeting would have been at the Kingsway Centre in Wellingborough,​ home to Kingsway Model Railway Society. Thanks are due to Kingsway Cenetre and KMRS, and hopefully we can re-schedule another meeting there at some time in the future.
 +
 +In the meantime, this meeting will now be online using Zoom.
 +
 +During our online courses, we found that breaks of 10-15 mins per hour worked well, to avoid people getting fatigued from staring at their screens, so we will follow that idea for the area group meeting.
