I welcome you back to the Club from your summer holidays. I hope you have all had a very pleasant summer.
I am pleased to present you with the September-October programme 2017. The new season starts with some slight changes for the Club.
As was mentioned as a possibility last year, the Committee of the ASCL has found it necessary to raise the membership fee by CHF 10, which makes it CHF 90 for a couple and CHF 60 single. The special student rate remains CHF 10. We hope that this will not discourage members from enjoying all the interesting events that the Committee is planning to organise in the coming season.
With the new season Tony Deyes will take over the organisation of the Club lectures and will present his very interesting first lecture in October. We welcome him and wish him great success in this very important Club activity.
I am very happy to announce that Tony Walker has agreed to continue organising the seasonal walks and we thank him for that.
Please note that this year the English Films’ season starts from November 17th.
The Club continues its prize-awarding activity, which was initiated by the previous Committee. Attending and contributing at the prize-giving ceremonies adds to the ASCL’s positive reputation in the area as well as attracting new members.

Annual Subscriptions :
Please note that the ASCL financial year runs from June 1st to May 31st. This ties in with our programme of events.
It would therefore be helpful for the Club if all membership fees were paid by September 30th each year, CHF 60.00 for singles and CHF 90.00 for couples. There is a special discounted membership fee of CHF 10.00 for students.
Our IBAN number is CH40 0900 0000 6500 2028 8 and our Post Office account number is 65-2028-8
Payment slips will also be available during our coffee mornings in the Club Rooms. You will find them on the table next to the coffee machines.
I wish you all a pleasant start to the new Club year.
