Firstly apologies for the delay in getting this out. On the evening, only a few of the members turned up for what was a historic night for the club.

Formation of the club as a company limited by guarantee, this was voted on with a unanimous decision to proceed. The first directors being Nigel Morris and Sam Partridge.
The year end for club membership is to be changed to 30 September, so memberships will need to be renewed on 1 October (2013) and every 1 October going forward. This now means the ‘year’ ties in with the summer/winter series. Again this was a unanimous vote.
