My reaction to AGM calling notices is a usually a bit unenthusiastic. Nobody ever
seems to want to get involved and it usually falls to the same old stalwarts to keep
the club ticking over. Would 2009 be any different?
This years AGM was held on Saturday 6 December. George Bray officiated and after
‘apologies’ & approval of the ‘minutes of the last meeting’ he invited The Commodore
Tony Hopkins to give his annual report.
The Treasurers report, given by Graham Thompson, followed and it appears that the
old club is in fairly good shape financially.
Next on the agenda was the election of Flag Officers and Management Committee members.
Changes to the Flag Officers concerned Dave Jennings, now Hon. Boatswain, Nigel Knowles,
now Hon. Harbourmaster and Diana Carpenter returning as Hon. Social Secretary. All
the other positions remain unchanged.
A new and welcome addition to the Management Committee was Ken Ayers. Diana will
confirm her Social Committee at a later date.
Graham Thompson was re-elected as Auditor. Any other business was quickly concluded
and Richard Cannon was invited to get the prize giving underway.
For details of who won what please go to the clubs excellent website, however it
is worth noting that Imogen, Edmund and Andrew Morris did very well winning several
trophies. Well done them!
Following the prize giving Diana and her team laid out a brilliant ‘supper’ of party
food accompanied by Joan Walkden’s celebrated mulled wine.
Overall a very good evening. Congratulations to our prize winners and thanks to Diana
and her team for the outstanding catering.
