Discussion Group

9.30am for 9.45am, Wednesday 20th March

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn (Melway 46 F8)


Ten members enjoyed a presentation by Eric Berzkalns on how to build a dam.  His presentation was accompanied by the theme from the Dam Busters. Eric actually helped build a dam and was able to tell us of the methods used and the quality controls to make sure it’s still standing. After morning tea, we each had to say where we had our best meal. One member’s best meal was just an ordinary sandwich – but great after 24 hours without food!

At our next meeting,  Eric Berzkalns will tempt our taste buds with exotic fish. After that, the topic will be What Does the Future Hold – how much will technology change our lives, our homes, our purchases, transport, and our daily lives .

Everyone is welcome to join in the discussion.



The Group meets on the third Wednesday of each month.  

Members and friends exchange ideas and new thoughts about a wide range of subjects, which are selected by Group members. One of the members volunteers to research and lead each discussion.

The topics discussed since the Group was established in 2010 include Food, Music, Transport, Population, Immigration, Poverty, Crime and Punishment, Global Warming, Democracy, Nuclear Power, Man’s Greatest Achievements, Humour, Surviving the Next Ten Years, and The Olympics.

The Group has also held three very well-attended discussions related to men’s health.
