General business from the last years AGM. The club gear was in doubt as to whether it could be stored at Mike Woods place as he was moving house. Mike has moved house and still has the clubs gear.

In conclusion Bob made special mention to Pru and Mike W for helping him stay focused and looked back on his three years as Club President with considerable satisfaction and a small amount of regret.

General Business:

  • Barry suggested the club look into the purchase of new survey gear
  • Judith suggested the club needed new helmets and lights to replace the current units which are used to hire out
  • Simon asked if the club needs another drum of carbide. This needs to addressed urgently as we have none left.
  • Bob wants a discussion on committee meetings being held on the same night as club nights ie a committee meeting once a quarter on the same evening as club night, either before or after the meeting.

These matters will be discussed at the next committee meeting
