Secretary/Treasures Report 2019

Interim Teasuers Report

At this date the accounts for the season have not been closed off for 2019 and I cannot provide the final accounts.

The current bank balance at this date is $4,277.12.  There are more T-Shirts on backorder so this will be reduced by about another $500 at least.

There are Jackets ($80 adults, $55 Juniors) and Caps ($25) for sale so income is yet to be realised.

The larges capital expenditure this season was 4 new trailers and insurance.  A more detailed report of income and expenditure will be provided at the AGM.

Secretary's report

The minutes from the last AGM are below.  Several Executive Committee meetings were held through out the year which resulted is a well coordinated seasons.   

The new point-score system is working seamlessly and cut back the time calculation of point-score results taken and has eliminated errors in adding up the point-score as it is all driven by final places. 

My thanks go to Hans Bendl (Public Officer) who again this season made another great effort - we cannot function without you Hans - thanks again.  Jeff Ryan has been unwell this year and it has made all of us appreciate how much work Jeff does each year as well.  Jeff's recovering so we hope to see Shaggy at Bendalong with us, if not at the presentation night.

I have observed many presidents since I joined 1983 but Fishy proved this season to be among the very best the Club has had and attended every competition and made a significant difference to the running of events, thanks Fishy.  

Don McCaw made an outstanding contribution as our Vice President and I can see him being a future President as he continues to make a significant contribution to the Club.  

Brett Hardy had his first season as Senior Contest Director foisted upon him as Troy Wood had a gap year.  Thanks Brett for your efforts. Hopefully you and Woody can make a big contribution in 2020.

The stand out contest directors for 2019 have been Russel Wallace and Greg McKee, I hope that you both stand again as Contest Directors for 2020 as we need all hands on deck on competition days. 

Finally to our Clean-Up Australia Day Mums - What a great effort.

Storeroom Clean-UP is on Thursday 21 November 2019

Hans and I are going to do a Storeroom Clean-UP on Thursday 21 November 2019.  Anyone who is around and wishes to help out please ring me on 0408463714 for the time.  Probably mid morning after an early surf.
