Beth Hudman, Charlie Kyprianou -Guest Speaker
Chair for the evening was PP Mike Williams.
Toast was given by Stan Roulston and Grace by PP Mark. Kathy opened the meeting and welcomed members and guests. PP Mike  welcomed guests Beth Hudman and the guest speaker Charlie Kyprianou. In his role of Almoner Mike informed the club that Lance Hatcher had had an unfortunate accident and was out of action this week. PP Lance is quite sore and sorry but otherwise ok. ( Meeting was later informed by Wayne Murphy that Lance also tested positive to Covid today).  
Mike then called for members to come forward for their Rotary spots.
Pres Elect John Lyons reported that he had attended the RC Barossa for their changeover dinner. He said he was surprised to learn that people outside Rotary could be awarded the Paul Harris Fellow. He has some people from the community that he believes we could nominate. He was also impressed by the projects that Barossa Club undertake with such a small number of members. In particular the Caravan towing course.
PP Steve Barilla reminded everyone about Covid safe protocols.
PP Mike then invited everyone to enjoy some fellowship over dinner before introducing Sergeant Barry for his session.
This week’s Wheel spinners were Stan Roulston and Ian Nys (who finally accepted the puddings as a prize!).
Birthdays this week- Mark Forgie July 15; Klaus  July 20th; Pres Kathy July 22nd  and Ron Lloyd 21st who received a rousing Happy Birthday
Anniversaries:  Deb Williams: July 12, 2019 (3 years); Lance Hatcher: July 16, 1962 (60 years; Bob Hinderwell (10 years).
Barry took the opportunity to inform members that Colin Bazeley will be riding in the Gran Fondo in Darwin. This is an international Cycling event over 145 km.
Barry said he was also to hear that Gawler had a road Safety committee and that members should be aware that Pres elect John Lyons is part of this committee. Congratulations John.
Barry then invited Anthony Barilla to come forward to remind members about the quiz night. Anthony said the Bunyip will be running a story on the Bash team and Rotary should get a mention. The car will be ‘stickered up’ this week with the Logo’s. It looks like a good crowd for Saturday with lots of donations for the raffle and Auction. Reminder that if you want to order platters they need to be in before lunch on Wednesday. Teams are welcome to bring their own food but not drinks.
PP Mike  introduced Guest Speaker Charlie Kyprianou  from Cartridge Universe.
Charlie cleared up any confusion by giving a brief explanation about the name. Cartridge Universe is located next to the Java Hut in Gawler and was previously name Cartridge World. After 5 years of franchise to Cartridge World Charlie left and renamed to Cartridge universe.
Cartridge Universe sells printers of all makes and kinds. Most are in stock but the very large commercial ones have to be ordered in. They also offer a recycling service for original brands.  Charlie explained the different types of printers and their ink. Cartridge universe still refill cartridges as well as sell new ones. Refilling is good for the environment, but manufacturers obviously don’t want you to do it because they want you to buy new ones. Charlie warned members to not accept the firmware updates on your printer because this will stop you using after market cartridges or refill.
Cartridge Universe offer free printer repairs for regular customers, but the main advice is don’t let your inkjet printer sit idle for long periods of time (1 month) as the heads get clogged up.  When purchasing a new Toner shake it before installing because it has been sitting idle. Charlie uses different suppliers so he can access the best quality for each printer.
Charlie then conducted a question and answer session with members.
During his thanks, PP Mike said it was very good to hear about a local business with a conscience. When Charlie heard that his Certificate of thanks indicated we had made a donation to Vaccinate 45 children against polio he generously said he would like to donate a further $30 to the cause.
PP Mike Thanked Beth for coming and said he looked forward to her being inducted in the coming weeks.  He then introduced PP Mark for his closing remarks.
PP Mark thanked PP Barry and PP Mike for tonight. A reminder that Committee meetings were being held tonight. He asked for a volunteer to deliver the Honour Board  to Gawler Arts and Signs.
After the four-way test PP Mark officially closed meeting 3122
