People were seen reading through our display of the front pages of the Western Mail and South Wales Echo from the eight days of the Apollo 11 mission. Thanks must go to the staff of the Cathays Heritage Library for giving instruction on using their microfiche system and for being very helpful.
Phill Wallace, our Chairperson, presented two talks to a capacity audience. His fame is spreading and, keeping up what has become a tradition, he supplied the chocolate!
Appreciation must also be expressed to Edward Cooper for his IT skills and for working alongside Jim Hennessy, Gordon Harries and Owen Cornelius in carrying, fetching, standing in, unpacking and packing, and being all round thoroughly helpful chaps.
This was one of the biggest events we have participated in; it took months to pull all the resources together and we're unlikely to be invited to an event as significant again. It took a lot of effort from a good number of CAS members to make this work but as the saying goes 'You get out what you put in'.
It was an excellent day, thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks to all our friends at NMW. I think that by 4 p.m. we were all lunar-ed out! But very happy.
