What topics do we look at...?

The program for Beginners is more structured as we build the foundations. 

However, the Improvers have more control over the topics explored.  We usually start with a couple of recent hands to see what issues of interest emerge.  Here are some of topics we looked at last year, though we always prioritise your questions/requests/suggestions. So, if there's anything you want to flag up just let Dom know (a bit of notice will help me to prepare).
