1. Previous Meeting
GR produced the Minutes of the last Committee Meeting dated 12th March 2007. These were approved.
RJ led a discussion with CB and JS to verify the numbers of members. It was agreed that the membership currently stands at 40. This includes Colin Milligan, a new member proposed by Bob Hill and seconded by Steve Shaw. Things were left on the basis that GM would contact Colin to make the necessary payment arrangements to formally welcome him as a member. It was also agreed that his joining handicap would be 24.
CB reported there is £5,353 in current account and £778 on deposit, a total of £6,131. This is divided between the hole in one fund (£541), retained members funds (£3,742) and a Society balance of £1,903.
All 2007 subs have been paid save for Mark Adams and Mike Foxton.
CB raised the issue of the £5 per head extra tax charge raised by the travel company with whom the Spanish tour has been booked. This will be taken from the account of every tourist flying with Monarch other than RL (who has paid via his separate charge).
Steve Stoner produced a sample of the 2007 shirt. This will be ready for the Spanish Tour next week. SS will produce the shirts and distribute them on tour.
5. Tour Arrangements
A number of detail points in relation to the tour were discussed. These are to be covered by RJ in a separate email to all tourists (now done).
