Angela (D) and Nick have volunteered to take on the 26 January ride, so now we are looking for an offer for 9 February (and/or 23 February) Anyone up for taking on one (or both!)?
Thanks to Nick also for getting the report of yesterday’s ride to me with exemplary speed. Pity about the nasty 4×4 driver. Who do such people think they are? And what century do they think they are living in? Born in 1941, I still catch myself writing ’19–‘ on cheques etc. But at least I actually know we are nearly a fifth of the way through the 21st century. Some people!
National conference motions
I explained in the last newsletter that with motions for the Clarion national conference – at the Easter Meet in Warwick – we need to make any proposals ‘no later than 2 months before the annual conference.’ That means – as I also explained – that I need to receive any in order to allow time for a meeting if necessary by Friday 18 January – this Friday! None received so far.
I’ve had a message from Anne saying that she and Mick are willing to host the AGM in March once again.
Great! That’s a load off my mind. Thanks to them both.
As soon as I can find time I shall begin putting my Secretary’s report for last year together. I wouldn’t want to twist anyone’s arm, but it would be nice if other office-holders sent in a written report for circulation – as has often been done in the past
I’ll be consulting Anne and Mick about which day in March will be best for the AGM. Then – assuming there is more than one possibility – as I have done in the past I’ll ask everyone to choose the best one for them. Inevitably, it’s all too likely that it won’t be good for someone – but it does seem the fairest way of doing things.
