Presidents Report:
We will have a BBQ at the shed in a couple of weeks time to present Don Patterson with an honorary membership.
Our Merry-Go-Round does need a certification inspection done again. James Devany (the engineer from last year) is donating his time and costs to the club which is very much appreciated. We do have to make sure the log book is filled out and up to date. Barry will be chasing you on this matter next week.
Corrina has made a schedule for the meeting jobs up to the end of the year. I ask you; if you can do a program job or find any guest speakers for our meetings; please let me (Rod) or Corrina know.
Thankyou to members for applying for your Working With Children Checks. I hope we can get all members up to date with these before show time.
I will be returning from Perth next week, so Kaj will preside over the shed meeting in case I am late!
