    I enjoyed the meeting last night. As a newcomer I try to follow the rules and regulations that are in place. I was very perturbed and frustrated to see that old members broke all the rules, by reading a bunch of their poems at once, limiting the time for others. I would recommend that the moderator follows the rules strictly, as it doesn’t give a good image as the way it is.

    • Thank you so much Max for attending our poetry evenings, your insights and comments are appreciated. We do work towards making our readings enjoyable and fair to everyone and no preference or bias was intended, however on the occasion of October 15, we neglected to keep official “by the clock” time, which does result in time – keeping guesswork. We do intend to keep more accurate time in the future. We appreciate you and others who carefully honoured the three minute rule with your own time keeping and we will make renewed efforts towards fairness and fun for all.
