  1. Thanks Lee for getting the Oscar results posted so quickly. It is good that the films can now be accessed by club members on the members section of the website, should they wish to view them at anytime. Thank you for all the work you do to keep things up to date and relevant. Much appreciated.

    1. No worries. Luckily Hugh sent them through to me earlier which made it easier to get them up so quickly.

      And David deserves credit for uploading a lot of the films too! 🙂

  2. Thanks Lee

    David your work in uploading films to the website has been noticed. Thank you very much for all the hard work you’re doing for the club, often unnoticed. There are probably about 10 members who had a wee peep at the films before Oscar night, me included. It is good to remind club members from time to time that we have amazing resources at our fingertips thanks to the hard efforts of the few. May we all appreciate them in time.
