  2. Presidents Report – Ian Rigby

It’s been a very interesting year, huge thanks to all those that have helped in the Club. Display Day was a highlight joint with TR register, compared to other car clubs we are functioning very well. This year was tricky getting us into more electronic methods with newsletter and database. A huge thank you to Kevin Foster for his administration of the Club Registration Scheme. The President and Vice President award this year goes to Duane Kaak & Alex Smithson for all their tremendous work during the year.

  1. TREASURERS REPORT – Alex Smithson

The Club Annual Financial statements were distributed on all tables at the meeting for members to peruse. A surplus was realised as we did not spend funds on printing a magazine as budgeted and the Online Database system Our Car Club has been cheaper than budgeted.

Members queried the Christmas Dinner Sponsorship and it was noted that the Sponsorship is the same $ figure for happy hour, regardless of numbers. Less people equates to more drinks per person.

It was questioned what should the club do with our healthy bank balance and any suggestions are welcome to be forwarded to the committee for consideration.

  1. GENERAL BUSINESS

Although not an official appointment, Roger Lange has been our Club Representative at MSCA meetings and all event, over many years.

Dave Wilson was also believed to have been a member for 42 years.  The Committee will look into this.
