LAST WEEK: If you didn’t come to last week’s meeting to hear Lance Heger and to see his film made in Greenland, then it was your loss. Lance is a relaxed and informative speaker who spent his time there on behalf of Sealord, and his film was a real eye-opener to those of us who have never been there. Talk about a small ice-infested anchorage full of little fishing boats, the classic "little boxes on the hillside" arrayed in a kaleidoscope of colour, and the "cold" of the place, it really came home to you. You had 24 hours of daylight fantastic light effects, large icebergs popped up all over the place, and that was in a normal working day. Special people had to be living and fishing etc and existing in that rock and snow land.
