Pottering in Patagonia and le Tour de Mont Blanc - 28th Sept

Postby Lindsay M » Mon Jul 24, 2017 2:55 pm

I'm very pleased to announce our next evening of talks with be on 28th September (yep, a Thursday but there's no meet that weekend so no excuses :) )

Venue: the Victoria hotel, 28 Great George Street, Leeds
Time: 7pm, talks start at 7:30pm

Following on from his ski touring misadventures, Luke will be telling us about how he hobbled through Patagonia with his crampon-induced puncture wound. In addition we will have Bee telling us all about her Tour de Mont Blanc, which is like the Tour de France but with no bikes, no collisions with spectators, no spotty jerseys and no questionable sideburns. So actually, nothing like the Tour de France, and much more interesting anyway.

I'm excited already... Hope to see lots of you there!

Thanks for the offer Paul but I think we're going to try the high tech option and go via the TV as the laptop's don't always have a cable slot that works with the pub projectors. I'll let you know if Bee or Luke corrects me on that front!

If it helps, I have a number of adaptors that will convert HDMI, DVI & VGA. If you let me know what you need I can check I have the right combinations and bring them along. If not, it wouldn't be too hard or expensive to get what we need. I think it would be much better on a screen if that's an option.

Hi Kev, the TV is quite big and the picture was pretty clear so it worked OK as a back up last time. The projectors at the pub are pretty old and require a VGA connection. I have a cable, but most laptops these days only have HDMI ports.

If you have a VGA to HDMI adapter, it would be an option to use Paul's screen (the pub one is falling apart) with the pub's projector.

That the one thing I don't have (well, I could do it but it would be unnecessarily complicated and not guaranteed to work!), but I can get one if we want to use the projector. Let me know.

I've acquired the necessary adapter!

For anyone who wants to save on the price of a stamp, I'll be there and accepting cheques for the annual dinner.

A good evening, even with so few people there, Round Mont Blanc with blisters and off to Patagonia in one evening. Thanks :)
May your footsteps tread the unfrequented byways
