This is a class for those who want to keep their mind active while having fun. There is a variety of quiz formats. Some come from newspapers and some from a collection of books the group has acquired. These are somewhat like trivia but can cause spirited discussion at times. On occasions current events are discussed, mostly with diverse and often hilarious comments. During our time there is an interval for morning tea, then there is a session for games such as rummicub, dominoes, a variety of card games and scrabble, which makes for some very creative spelling at times. The main objective of the group is to keep interested in the world around us and have a good time while doing it. The only criteria for joining the group is to have a sense of humour and don’t take yourself too seriously. Tuesday
This is a self-managing group that enjoys the challenges of solving problems and puzzles. At times the group may decide on a topic of interest which they independently research and discuss as a group. On occasions the group views and discusses documentaries. Some topics previously covered have included human development. human interactions and body language. Group planned excursions to places of interest and visits from guest speakers add to this interesting and challenging programme. Friday
Each week the group nominates a couple of movies for members to view, one showing at our local cinema. For those wanting a day out on the mainland we also nominate one at the larger theatre complexes where there are often movies on limited release. Once a month, usually on the last Thursday of the month, there is an extended meeting when a DVD is viewed. The movies chosen are basically “anything goes” depending on the taste or sense of adventure of the members. Many members have found that they become more enterprising in their movie choice when exposed to the rave reviews from others. The group welcomes anyone with an open mind who enjoys watching movies and is willing to discuss their ideas, likes and dislikes, and who enjoys the opportunity for fun and convivial discussion and perhaps develop a better appreciation of the movies that they see.
