In a word – poor.
Spotted in the Cambridge CBD – maps in hand – this morning, Saturday, the 16th of January 2010. They did appear to be at the very least on an orienteering expedition – could they be scoping out a New Zealand adventure race? I really have no idea.
Things may be a little messy around here for a while as I make some aesthetic and structural changes. I have no option but to do this live so please bear with me. You may continue navigating the posts while this is happening – some may appear a little wonky until I make individual adjustments. The page menu is moving to the side bar. The first challenge is to get the images in current posts correctly aligned. The side bar will then be revamped. The idea is to achieve a cleaner look with less distractions and more intuitive navigation both here and on my gallery server.
A quiet tonight – still a healthy turn out – though not the bursting-at-the-seams November meet. The next is Wednesday evening the 3rd of February 2010.

Waiting in the front garden of Cambridge Museum at 24 Victoria Street for the ‘official opening’ of the museum’s new exhibitions layout. Today signifies a milestone in the transition begun in June 2008 of the transfer of management of the museum from the Cambridge Historical Society (who retain ownership of the collection) to our local body authority the Waipa District Council. Today’s celebration acknowledges also the centenary of the opening, in 1909, of the museum’s home since 1984 the Cambridge Courthouse.
When I was young this doorway was the entrance to the Cambridge Public Library. It is now the Victoria Street entrance to the Cambridge Information Centre. We are on the north western corner of the Cambridge Town Hall (Victoria and Queen (SH1) Streets) which tomorrow celebrates it’s centenary with a ribbon cutting at 3PM and a concert at 7.
