Julian tells me that there are 12 people who were members last year who haven’t renewed their subs for 2016. It may be that some at least don’t want to join up this year – but if not will they please do the necessary. Julian’s reminder below; click here for a form. If you’re not sure whether or not you’ve paid – contact Julian!
We now need some offers for the two rides in March. Jim has suggested that to avoid the inevitable crush in pubs on 6 March – Mothers’ Day/Mothering Sunday – it might be good to make the lunch-stop a café – not likely to be so busy. That seems like a good idea to me.
As you will recall last year we changed our constitution in order to allow more flexibility over the timing of our AGM. The relevant clause now reads “ The AGM shall be held each year between 1 January and 31 March.” The feeling was that it should be later rather than earlier, so I’m now planning to call it for some time early in March. I will try to include the details in the next newsletter in a fortnight’s time.
We’ve always held it on a weekday evening and I want to avoid – if that’s possible – choosing a day when anyone can’t make it. I seem to recall that last year someone had a day that was impossible – I think it was Jim on a Wednesday. So it would be very helpful if you let me know any evenings that are not “on” as far as you are concerned – in fact it would be a good idea which would help with the planning if everyone intending to attend would let me know within the time indicated.
