Virtual VMCCNI

As a way of trying to find a way forward in these ‘trying times’, the VMCCNI Committe has agreed that we will host on-line ‘virtual events’. This will include general meetings, talks, topic-based discussions, video demonstrations and other ‘events’. We are also considering running on-line meetings with other VMCC Sections.
Without an on-line virtual programme, we are all isolated from each other.

Also, whilst we have paid for a suitable platform to do this for a year, we hope that this is a temporary measure, though it could be a usefull addition to normal meetings and runs.

We do need to say that we are very aware that not all of our members are on-line, and we are trying to find ways of including these members.
Watch this space !

Dates for your Diary

The VMCCNI Committee had a ‘virtual’ meeting this evening.
Whilst it was primarily to agree a Provisional Programme for 2021,
We wondered what else we could do before then.


We discussed, and agreed 2 dates in the not too distant future,
and all from the comfort and safety of your own home.

  1. Tuesday 15 December – 8pm
    Virtual Christmas Quiz via ‘Zoom’


  2. Tuesday 19th January 2021 – 8pm
    Virtual AGM via ‘Zoom’

Further details will be provided nearer the dates, so in the meantime,
get yourself set up with ‘Zoom’ on your computer, tablet, smart phone.

Coronovirus / Covid-19 – VMCCNI Current position (4 October)
Please read the whole of this page.

Currently, Government restrictions are restricting what we are able to do.
VMCC NI will strictly adhere to these guidelines, but will review activities once restrictions are lifted.
This, however,  could still mean that events will not go ahead.
Please watch this page and the ‘Club Runs’ page for any updates.
Also note that a run or event could be revived at short notice.
