So if you didn't attend the AGM, or send your apologies for absence, WHERE WERE YOU? The AGM is a really important annual meeting to determine the way forward for The Club in the coming year. Every full member of The Club should exercise their right to be part of, and have a say in, that process.
The AGM was the first order of business. The Commodore, Roger Wheeler, opened the meeting. The last AGM minutes and matters arising were quickly dealt with. Rogers own report covered three main areas. The first covered an update on the proposed footbridge across the Thames adjacent to The Club. Roger was assisted in this by Eric Bridgewater who has been keeping a watching brief on developments for some time. The second was to revue the years achievements and to thank individuals for their contributions. Finally Roger announced that after four years he was standing down as Commodore of AQSC.
Joan Garrett delivered the Treasurers report and answered questions arising; although there was heavy expenditure on the safety boat subscriptions have not been increased. George Bray took over the Chair to oversee the election of Club Officers and Management Committee members for 2002. Following discussions the Committee were elected with a number of changes and some new blood.
Following AOB the AGM was closed and the annual prize giving got underway. Sailing Secretary Report. and Prizes.
The evening concluded with mulled wine, mince pies and other goodies supplied by "The Ladies". Many thanks to all involved for a lively and enjoyable evening marking the end of another sailing year at Aquarius SC.
