AGM February Agenda
Small increase in fees (see attached quote from constitution).
Membership fee (only) to be increased by £5 pa which would represent
approximately a 5% increase for the average member.
13/ The annual subscription covering the period 1st March to subsequent 1st March, for sailing craft and canoes shall be fixed by the executive committee of the Association. The reasons for the subscription levels shall be explained at the AGM and recommendations received for consideration by the Committee during the following season.
discussion of finding cash for more club boats ensued.
It was agreed that a grant application should be made (Lydia offered to
explore this). Some urgency was
recognized since most manufacturers offer quite good deals at this time of year.
If we could raise a grant to cover purchase of two boats (eg Pico/Topaz)
then club would buy a third. Long
term view to try and have 6 boats. Would
be very helpful to a youth section in particular (Topaz mentioned as good in
this context since multiple rigs can be used).
Youth Coordinator – a volunteer to be asked for at AGM plus “feelers” to
be extended amongst known adults in the club plus possibly an advert…. And
certainly a notice in the club. There
are a number of juniors who would like to sail but can’t unless rescue cover
and/or suitably proficient adults are in attendance.
Coordinator would perhaps be able to recruit volunteers on an
occasional/rotated basis to provide cover.
Coordinator might also organize junior events/training.
offered to use a contact of his to perhaps place an article in the W.Gazette
highlighting our activities.
to propose to members at AGM “We are thinking of starting a junior
section…..Does anybody have ideas as to how best to run/organize it?”
Racing trophy awards – Pete would find it in his own interest to ensure
trophies were available at the AGM!
Set a date for Workday
clean floor- by contractors]
remainder of scrap from the old toilet block area
the triangular dinghy area and further improve – needs prior planning.(paul)
Paul happy with present situation. It
was felt that it was much better but that it was very unlikely that it would
ever be perfect!
to inform Ian which owners to be notified to remove boats (and who we would
refuse to renew berth allocations to)
race series happening
series had been very good
training had been very useful
enquired who issues swipe cards? A
member had commented that they had received gate key but no swipe card.
Geoff reminded us that the idea was that member would come to club to
receive a clubhouse briefing and be issued with swipe card at same time.
This system was sent to new members when they received gate key.
PM PRIOR TO AGM AT 8PM
