In the interest of public safety and in keeping with the latest direction from the government regarding the COVID 19 virus, IPMS Ipswich has suspended all of our meetings at the Ipswich & District Indoor Bowls Club until further notice. When we are able to safely return to our regular meetings, we will post notice both on this web site and our IPMS Ipswich Facebook page. We will continue to liaise closely with the bowls club management and monitor advice and direction from the government to determine when a good time will be to return to our normal meeting routine.
In the interim, if any of our followers who live in the Ipswich or surrounding area would like to join us, we have a very active Facebook IPMS Ipswich Group page where members are continually posting the progress on their latest builds. If you want to join, click on the link above and send us a join request. Since the implementation of COVID-19 restrictions, we have conducted virtual club meetings on our Facebook Group page on our usual meeting night. During this time, everyone posts photos of their latest builds. Those posts, as well as our virtual competition results will also appear in our web site updates. Our next virtual meeting will take place on Tuesday, 26 January at 7:30 PM.
It's been a tough year. That's an understatement. But in the midst of an unprecedented (in modern times) worldwide pandemic, modellers have found themselves well equipped to deal with the challenges of lockdown. Talk to most people who pursue this great hobby and you will find that boredom is not in their vocabulary. Most of us have found that time at the workbench is the perfect antidote to these troubling times. It certainly whiles away the days in a positive and productive way. As a tribute to our stalwart members who have kept their morale and model output high we've put together a slideshow recapping our accomplishments during Lockdown 2020. We hope you draw some inspiration and enjoyment from it. Stay safe everyone!
Finally, if you want to catch up on any months you may have missed, click on the PAST MEETINGS on the menu bar at the top of the page and scroll down to the month you'd like to view.
Keep smiling, keep building. We'll get through this!
