Meeting December 3rd  

 

President, Mike van Trier, welcomed all members, our guest speaker, David Pankhurst, and his partner, Alison Merchant.

Mike announced that the next Board Meeting will be on December 16th and reminded members that the Christmas Dinner Meeting will be on December 17th and the welcome back barbecue on Monday, January 14th.

Our first meeting for 2013 will be on January 21st when Mike would like to see some nominations for the new Board.

Jeff Spickett has organized badges for our Honorary Members and these will be presented at the Christmas Dinner.

 

 

Chairman Greg James with David Pankhurst and Alison Merchant

 

Colin McCulloch reported that we were offered a cancellation sausage sizzle last Saturday so we ran that rather than the planned Friday trial.  Colin thanked all of the volunteers (included honorary member Trevor Leaver) who did such a great job selling 712 SSs and 255 drinks and reported that we took $56.90 in donations and banked a pleasing profit of $1,308.40.

 

Mal Bennett informed the meeting that the Tom Hoad Cup will be on from December 27th to 30th and called for volunteers to run the parking noting that it has been a very good fundraiser.

Please study the roster below and let Mal know when you can assist.

Mal announced details for the Christmas Dinner with the dinner cost of $38 being subsidized by the Club so that all members and their partners pay only $30.

 

Tom Slater reported that Colin Taylor is having a hip problem and said that widows of former members will be invited to all of the Club’s official functions.

 

Greg James distributed another of his challenging quizzes on abbreviations.

 

Rod Rate gave detailed plans regarding collecting and refurbishing bicycles and Peter Field offered to store some.

 

Patricia Robertson gave her comprehensive New Generation Director’s report that included details on: RYPEN, Handicamp, RYLA, National Youth Science Forum, proposed RYDA and involvement with primary schools

 

The door prize was won by Jeff Spickett, the (un) Lucky Joker (worth about $560) by Carole Maxwell and Sergeant, Ian Pittaway, fined many fine people including himself.

 

GUEST SPEAKER

 

David Pankhurst

 

“RYDA”

 

Greg James introduced David who gave an excellent presentation on RYDA (Rotary Clubs Fostering Youth Driver Awareness).  David is a passionate advocate of this program and will facilitate our involvement if we can interest our local high schools.

300 youths die on Australian roads each year and 20 times that number are seriously injured.

Find out more at RYDA.
