The meeting was chaired by Mr born again GR:
1. Handidcaps (GM)
All in hand. Nothing to report.
2. Website (JS)
JS and Mike Lee are working to incorporate a photograph tab in the website. All agreed that photographs should be golf related and vetted by a responsible committee member (ummm who?). JS advised that some 20 man days of programming would be needed to make the site updateable by others. JS does not currently have the time to do this.
ACTION: JS to advise when he can progress.
3. Fixtures (RL)
Anniversary Tour 2017. 40 members now signed up. Final total cost subject to exchange rate. The committee agreed that this cost uncertainly would be absorbed by WAGS and as Zeta Tours takes no margin, RL's accommodation, flights and golf would also be absorbed by WAGS.
Tour dinner confirmed for the Thursday, with Mr Burn as fines captain for the Friday (at golf club). RH drafting draw and FA cup.
ACTION: RL to investigate a restaurant for Saturday night (for all, but not compulsory).
