The CCS meeting was held on 14th September at the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum in Marton where, 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!
