Lock-Down Meeting - the COOC 6 x 6

June 1st 2020 was the first day since the Coronavirus lock-down that we could meet up as a group of friends and celebrate our hobby.
The government lifted restrictions, allowing groups of up to six people from different households to meet outside and observe social distancing rules.
We had to mark this historic moment, so a group of 6 of us met at 6pm and ensured we stayed 6' 6" apart!

John Dickson was in charge of the parking and drew a 8m diameter circle in the car park and set cones to mark where each car should be.
We set out deckchairs and brought our own refreshments.
It was a glorious sunny evening; the passing public kept a respectable distance and we were grateful for the chance to chill with friends who we'd not seen for 3 months or more.
Many thanks to
Graeme Mcculloch
@ The Waterside Inn for allowing us to spread out on his car park.
Hopefully, as restrictions ease we'll be able to repeat this with larger groups.
