Problem Corner: not wanting to frighten the young recruits dissent was left of the topics. Things covered included fees/expenses; AR co operation; unusual incidents were all discussed.

Due to a SENIOR MOMENT by the secretary who had a mix up with dates, our guest would not be with us. Sam and Jonny used resources on the RA website to host a presentation on simulation.
