Our Annual General Meeting has been confirmed for Sunday 10th February
at 10am. The venue details are below:
Marconi Sailing Club
Stansgate Abbey Farm
Please find a safety briefing for the venue attached to this email.
I would like to urge all members to attend. It is your club and
without your support and input the club could not move forward.
During the AGM we will be electing a new committee for 2019. There are
a few ring fenced posts such as Vice Chair (taken by the out going
Chair person for committee continuity) and Treasurer (This key
position takes a lot of time, training and commitment plus a level of
understanding spreadsheets and figures).
The following persons have already been nominated/agreed to stand for
election to the committee:
Club Chairman: Andrew Baldwin
Club Vice Chairman: John Hefford
Club Treasurer: Steve Moore
Club Secretary: Mike Dalby
Club Equipment Officer: Andy Evans
Club Events Officer: Barry Iszard
Club Committee Member: Cheryl-Ann Kotze
If you wish to stand on the committee please don’t hesitate to contact
me or a member of the current committee. If you can or want to help
out in some other way that would be great, please make this known to a
current committee member or bring it up at the AGM.
I am currently in the process of putting together the agenda for the
AGM so if you have anything you would like to propose, discuss, or are
too afraid to ask, please email me or any other committee member in
the next few days. No question is too silly, too big or too small! I
will send out the agenda to all members once it's been finalized. If
you think of anything you want to discuss after the agenda is
published you may still bring it up at the AGM during "Any Other
After the AGM we intend to go for a sea paddle. For those who intend
paddling there will be a £1.00 voluntary launch fee. This will go to
Marconi Sailing Club to help with cleaning etc and as a courtesy for
using their facilities. If possible I would like to have in advance
some idea of numbers intending paddling as this is an agreement we
have with Marconi Sailing Club. As this will be an official Bramston
CC paddle we will be covered under British Canoeing insurance.
Please arrive at the venue no earlier than 9.40 am and no later than
9.55 am. Please bring your own cups if you want a cup of tea. The
committee will supply the vitals. Nearer the date I will send out
directions and instructions as to arriving at the site as it is a
gated entrance with key holder access only.
Look forward to seeing you all!
