Christmas Meeting December 12th

How wonderful it was to welcome four new members to our Club, present a Paul Harris Fellowship and celebrate the end of a very busy, exciting and productive half-year!

Paul Harris Fellow

Bruce Robinson was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship for his outstanding contribution to the Club over many years.

Wife, Robyn, and brother, Trevor, were present to share the moment with Bruce.

President John Sharp spoke of many of Bruce’s achievements and contributions to the Club including his role in hosting international exchange students and his efforts to spread a culture of “Trustworthy Transactions”.

Trish and Gail were quick to congratulate Bruce on becoming a Paul Harris Fellow and recognizing his outstanding personal contribution to the Club in many roles over many years.

RCA Meals Arrangement at Tompkins on Swan                from Club Services Director Martin Houchin

 

Some time ago, the RCA entered into an agreement with Tompkins on Swan whereby ToS charge the RCA for a minimum of 25 meals each week. 

We agreed to this arrangement because the low number of meals served on some Mondays made it unsustainable for ToS to continue to host the club. 

The minimum 25 meals/week is now averaged over a month so that in a normal “4 Mondays” month, we are charged for 100 meals at $25/meal = $2500. 

If we have fewer than 100 meals, we are still charged the full $2,500. 

If we have more than 100 meals, for example 105, we get charged for 105 meals at $25/meal. 

These charges include the cost of the meal, tea and coffee, staff and room and facilities hire.

ToS charge non-eaters $2.50 to cover the above components less the meal. 

As you know, the RCA charge members $26/meal and $5 for non-eaters. 

One dollar of that helps cover meals for guests and entry for the door prize.

Over the past 12 months, the club has made a loss of $2000 on Monday meetings.

We are now trying to hold at least one “special” Monday meeting per month to attract more attendees/members and so reach our minimum 100 meals/month target and thereby mitigate any losses.

 

The other, costly problem is that of non-apologies.  We are charged for whatever number Greg books. 

If Greg books for 30 and only 28 attend (i.e. 2 non-apologies) we are charged for 30 meals and the Club loses $50.

 

To avoid unnecessary costs, it is very important that members, both eaters and non-eaters, notify the Attendance Officer by 10am on Monday if they will not be attending a meeting so that Greg can give ToS accurate numbers.

The Attendance Officer will charge both eaters and non-eaters, $26 and $5 respectively, for failure to notify of non-attendance, unless there are unforeseen circumstances that prevent timely notification.

 

PROUD GRANDPA

 

Hearty congratulations to Grandpa Martin Houchin on the safe arrival of his second grandchild, Poppy.

Poppy was born on December 2nd weighing in at 3500g.

Betty and Martin were in Melbourne for the happy arrival and we share their view that Poppy is gorgeous.

Well done everyone!
