Wear Valley Woodturners Zoom Meeting Thursday 10 th September at 7 o'clock
Thank you everyone who responded to the members survey. I will report on the results at the meeting. I am still awaiting an update on what is happening with the Bearpark venue and hopefully I will have some news by Thursday . DCC are not the speediest of responders!
The link to get into the Zoom meeting is below. Just click on it and it will take you to the meeting.
If you do not have the free Zoom Program on your computer, iphone etc then the instructions are as follows.to the question
"Do I need to download Zoom to join a meeting?
You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting or interview. You will be prompted to download the software, once you have clicked on the link that you have been provided. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting."
Many members of the Club are regularly joining a friendly weekly Turning North Zoom meeting which is for any woodturners, but especially those from the Northern Clubs. Below is an extract from the Border Woodturners newsletter which gives instructions on how to join these free meetings . The craich is good and there are lots of familiar faces from our club so why not give it a try?
How to access Turning North Zoom sessions
Hello folks, so some of us are having issues accessing the zoom sessions so here are some pointers.
The Turning North zoom sessions are on Monday evenings at 7pm, for those of us in alternative time zones the club is currently operating on British Summer Time which is GMT+1. All club sessions require registration, if you do not register then you will not be allowed into the session.
To register you must go to the following web address and complete the form you find there:
Registration is not instant so please do not leave registration until 6:58pm (or 7:15pm) on Monday night.
Each meeting must be registered for separately as they all have different access details, this helps us to keep you and the other users safe and free from problems.
The form you have to fill in looks like the image below (click on the image to make it bigger).
When the form is completed you click the register button you will see a result like the image below (click on the image to make it bigger)
Once your registration is approved you will receive an email, the email will come from Zoom and NOT the club. The email will look like the image below (click on the image to make it bigger).
You can use the link in the email as shown to access the meeting OR you can use the meeting ID you saw after registering and the password from the email.
One last thing you need to make sure of is that Zoom is set up to let me know who is trying to get in to the meeting, I need to be able to see either your name of email address when you come to the meeting or I will not be able to let you in - this protects the club and the other members and is NOT negotiable.
Most important of all, if you get stuck then get in touch! Use the form on the website to get in touch and someone will get back to you! CLICK HERE TO USE THE CONTACT FORM
If you want some expert help with Zoom then take a look at the article from last week (click the link to view it), it contains some really useful links which you can use to help you get set up with Zoom and they are FREE OF CHARGE.
Hopefully we will see you at the WVWT Club Zoom meeting on Thursday
