Me too Bill.  In arboricultural terms it is the social highlight of the year.
The beer may not be top notch although the boozer down the road does all 
right.
If you are missing the camarada then send me the cash and I'll have a pint in 
your honour!
The AGM was short and as one might expect the Association has taken a hit 
financially, but membership continues to grow, and there is more training and 
interaction than ever before.  The trustees, guided by Stewart and Laurence, 
have put measures in place to hold the finances in control.
The proceedings will be on line, but the AA is little different to the rest 
of us in that we just have to hang on and heed the advice and restrictions 
from government that are designed to protect us.  Yes, they vary and can be 
inconsistent, but we have an unprecedented situation and no-one knows 
everything - it is largely a matter of reaction.
On the plus side I have yet to meet/speak to an arb who is not as busy as 
ever.
Handy that trees grow outdoors . . .

I'm feeling slightly mournful about it all; this would have been the week
of the conference, and the way things are looking at the moment, it seems
there's a chance it won't happen next year either. I always enjoy meeting
up with my fellow Arbs, even if the beer is invariably rubbish.
And I entirely failed to register the AA's AGM on Zoom this week; did
anybody  log on? has anybody anything to report?

Bill
