At our committee meeting last night it was decided that the club would continue with our COVID mandate at the present time. We understand that the Government has lifted the mandates but it is entirely up to each organisation as what they think is appropriate. This will be reviewed again when we go to “green” under the traffic light system. This means that all persons entering the clubrooms must be vaccinated and wear a mask.
We understand that for some of you this is not what you wanted to hear but for the safety and wellbeing of the majority of our membership we feel that this decision is the correct one.
If you wish to have work fired, please contact the club on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange for this to be done.
We are postponing the gas firing scheduled for May 4th as there have been very few pots received so far. The updraft kiln is quite large and typically requires about 140 pots to warrant a firing. There is nothing to indicate that the additional pots still needed will be delivered by the Monday 2nd deadline.
The May firing has been rescheduled as follows:
· all work on shelves by 12 noon, Monday 9th May
· loading will be completed Tuesday 10th May from 2pm
· firing Wednesday 11th May (all day, starting 7.45am, completed about 5pm)
· unloading Friday 13th May 2pm
This firing will still be dependent on there being sufficient work to fill the kiln.
