Annual General Meeting 2014

Perth Radio Sailing Club held its Annual General Meeting last night at the Perth Horse and Pony Club. The evening was a terrific chance to catch up with sailing friends away from the lake and spend some time chatting.

Hub Bell arranged pizzas, and people bought their drinks, and we spent an hour in good company.

At 7.15pm, Commodore Denton Roberts called the meeting to order and within 40 minutes, the meetng was done and dusted. There were a couple of changes to the committee, with Allan Beer and Glenn Dawson stepping down from Vice Commodore and Secretary positions. These positions are now in the capable hands of Justin McAullay and Bruce Robins respectively.

 

Denton's Commodore's report touched on the following items:

-Sailing venues and our club's good relationship with the managing authorities.
-Our club's three trips to Albany during the year.
-The informative Rules seminar held at Mat Donelly's Auction Rooms.
-The wonderful Christmas Club Wind-up held at the home of Peter and Audrey Greeve
-The club's terrific participation in the Melbourne National Championships
-Club members fantastic efforts towards ensuring the club remains active and prosperous, and a fun place to be.

Secretary Glenn reported that club membership was at 60 members, with a small increase on the same time last year. Other areas touched on were:

-Club website and Facebook
-Communication within the club
-National Championships 2015
-Future directions for the club

Treasurer Hub Bell reported that the Club's finances were in good shape, with a very small operating profit. This means that the club registration fees will remain the same for the 2014/15 sailing year. Members are reminded that fees are now due.

Roger reported that there had been some good activity with lots of new boats and boats changing hands over the past 12 months. Generally, skippers were managing the registration process well. It must be remembered that once a sail number is issued by the National Registrar, skippers only have 6 months to get measured, complete the paperwork and submit to the National Registrar.

On a sad note, we remembered our long time club member Michael Bell, who passed away in March. Michael's contribution to the club and to radio sailing in general was terrific. He was a highly competitive skipper when he sailed, as well as a fantastic boat designer, buider and sail maker. He also contributed to the administration of the sport at club level, by auditing the books each year, as well as being the National Treasurer for a number of years.

It was decided that there would be a Memorial sailing day for Michael each September, and that a new Club Ten Rater Championship Trophy would be named the "Michael Bell Memorial Ten Rater Championship"

Good luck to the new committee in taking the club to new heights.
