PKN Raglan Vol. 4

Here then is a report for PechaKucha Night in Raglan Vol. 4 -- held at the end of November -- courtesy of organizer Rodger Gallagher (and you'll find all the presenters listed on the event page). The caption for the photo above should read: "Chit chat during beer break at Raglan PechaKucha Night Vol. 4."

The intimate theatre room at the Raglan Old School Arts centre was even more intimate than usual on Saturday night for Raglan's PechaKucha Night Vol. 4. The interesting line-up of local and visiting presenters was a strong attraction.

Two conservation presentations started the evening, the first with Ros Empson on the SS Rangiriri and then Rick Thorpe on the Chatham Islands Back Robin. Charlie Young gave his views on dreaming big and took the audience through the birth of the boat Wahine Moe on Raglan Harbour. Then Rodger Gallagher took the audience down the 300 year history of France's Midi Canal.

Selwyn Stuart amazed everybody with his wood working skills and John Lawson covered the Raglan Panorama calendars. Meliors Simms mystified with her poetry and stitching. Jacqui Forbes covered the developed of Xtreme Waste and its recycling work in Raglan.

John McNeil from Aurecon group finished the evening with an explanation of how the Papahua footbridge was designed and constructed. John said it was the most interesting project he had been involved in during his extensive bridge design career.
