11th March WCG Committee Meeting


Present: Simon Davis, Kim Farrar, Justin Hall, Rob Gittins, Justin Hall
Apologies: Scott Miller, Steve Rush
Starting: 6:30 pm
Closing: 7:30pm

General Business:

  • No update has been received by the treasurer. Most club members have paid their subs. There are only a few outstanding subs.
  • Rob raised an idea of having club trip book that could be kept with the Tea and Coffee Kit so that people can write comments and stories when they are away on trips. This information could also help for articles for the Sump Think Newsletter.
  • Kim mentioned that she has been doing some walks with Sue lately and that some of these could be added to the trip list if anyone is keen on joining.
  • More trips are required to be organised for the upcoming months and it would be good to have a couple of trips that are organised for the next committee. People who indicated they would be willing to run or assist to organise a trip could be contacted to see when they would like to organise a trip (this infomation is on Google docs).
  • Bronwyn requested permission to use WCG funds to purchase electronic componentry for WCG & TPP michie phones and would be reimbursed directly from NZSS. It was agreed at the meeting that Bronwyn could precede, but just to need to confirm how much money was required.
  • It was raised that people are not coming to the committee meetings. Further discussion required as to what people want to do.
