Wollundry Rotary in Wagga Wagga is an active club that is accustomed to managing challenges.  After having meetings for six weeks using Zoom, the members thought it was safe to go back to face to face meetings. Their normal meeting place as closed so they met in a local pub. 
After a number of recurrences of the virus,  the pub said there were too many members to stay within the rules and they could no longer meet there.  So they went back to Zoom sessions… with a minor change.
  • They had a smaller group (within the allowed limits) meet in a member’s pub with their tablets and drinks  (see photo below)
  • A number of members zoomed in from their holiday locations
  • Another group zoomed in from one members home and
  • The rest of the members zoomed in from wherever they were and
  • one group of 3 members joined the meeting from 4,000 feet in a member's private aircraft (see photo at right)
In spite of the fact that we are enduring the worst virus in current history, Rotarians are adopting technologies that maintain Rotary friendships.
