Two weeks and no new rumours, re AGM.  I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing.

If you have heard  a good rumour or are prepared to start a rumour let me know , or post here .
But you must Be able of  substantiating the info in your post.
As it’s been said ‘’ your words only reflect on you’’ .

The AGM in normally the October meeting , last year there was some talk of moving the meeting date.

It would make sense to move the AGM closer to the end of the membership year, as is the usual practice with clubs, etc.
It's C3 chromie for me, see? Si!

When the new constitution is implemented there will be some standardising of Issuse such as this.

Two weeks to the next general meeting, there is going to be some business to take care of before the AGM,
 So, we do not have the BS the was the result of last year’s AGM, that has resulted on considerable disruption within the club.

I`m not on the club Facebook page and do not know the requirements to be accepted but people posting negative information, is not good for anyone.
I understand this is happening with persons pushing their own agenda.

My view is. if person don't want to support our club, they should go elsewhere.

Just as well our club as yet don’t have rules such as the HSV club does, they rightly frown on anyone bring their club in to disrepute.
 We need to bring forward those discussions at the next general meeting

Tonight's the night, our monthly meeting. The only way to know what happing is to be there, DONT rely on third-party one-sided barter.
The social aspect of the club begins at the meetings. Be there and have your say in the proceedings. Have a chat over a meal before the meeting.
