CCS 2002 meeting in the UK

 

The Captain Cook Society's UK Regional Weekend Meeting was held from Friday 13th September to Sunday 14th Sept. 2002
It was held at Marton, near Middlesbrough, based at the Marton Hotel & Country Club, which is close to the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum.
On Saturday there was a series of lectures at the Museum.
On Sunday members visited places in the area associated with Cook.
Here is the report published in the October issue of Cook's Log

After the "usual business", we were given an insight to the preparation for the publishing of books about Cook. The guest speakers were Victor Suthren and CCS members Tony Horwitz, John Robson and Vanessa Collingridge.

The evening meal at the Marton Hotel and Country Club was a pleasurable affair. Again, it is often the informal events that are the most rewarding for the exchange of ideas, research results and information.
How nice it would be to have a conference-cum-meeting where there could be informed discussions of the wider issues surrounding Cook, but with more of the atmosphere of a Society meeting.
Roll on the next meeting!
