The Triton Owners’ Club of the ACT Inc (TOCACT) - possible U3A course
To assist these people, TOCACT is considering running an introductory course for U3A on how to set up and use this equipment safely and effectively.
If there is sufficient interest they propose to run two 2 hour sessions (probably one in mid-September and the second in mid-October) with the first covering an introduction to the table saw and the second session the router.
The sessions would be held on a Wednesday evening (7-9pm) at the Stromlo Forest Scout Hall in Duffy. A small fee may be charged to cover the cost of hall hire.
If you are interested, please contact John Karas at before Monday 28 August 2017.

Seeking expressions of interest
From little acorns . . .
So what may be missing in our U3A?
In any university worthy of the name there’s research to discover new knowledge as well as disseminating the old. So are we all past hankering for that excitement of the chase? I think not, for in our course refreshment breaks it’s common for twos and threes to try and nudge the very cutting edges of knowledge.
Email if you might be interested in forming a team to explore our latent potential for collaborative armchair research.
You might be surprised at the possibilities, and there’s just time to design and offer such a program to the Courses Sub-Committee for next year.
