The 284th Meeting was held at the St Levans Inn on Thursday 13th February 2014.  

The President opened the Meeting at 20:00 with the Loyal Toast to Gunners, Missilemen and AWW’s everywhere.  

Minute Proposals: The 283rd Minutes were proposed by GI Cook S and Seconded by GI Perry

Treasurer’s Report: 

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Mike in his absence for a massive spread and a quality evening had by all. At the free bar only £496.20 of alcohol was drunk, the meal cost £770 total outlay £1,270.20. So despite the Social Sec’s  best efforts a small profit may have been made.

The cash statement was read out to the members present. 

Below is an outlay of the stock that I hold and prices. If anyone is interested in purchasing any of these goods then please contact me.

Association Website:  Our website is up and running .

Guest Book – Please visit and add your comments. There is still not enough action occurring even though the President of the Portsmouth Association has responded himself through it. Big Mac remains convinced that nobody wants to speak to him as he always seems to speaking to himself.  So if for nothing else, visit the site and say hello to Big Mac.

If you have something that you would like included on the site, email it to our Webmaster (Ray Lester).  Ray has done a brilliant job of amending the website as soon as I request anything.

GI Bennett  For those of you unaware GI MacCallum was taken ill in Chile a few days ago. He has had his

Gall bladder removed. He is out of hospital and at home resting.

GI Stones  GI Timms is running the London marathon in aid of The British Legion and wondered if the       association would donate some funds  to his run. He has set up a just giving website.

Put to the floor for a vote and declined

GI Potts I would like to point out that it was poor planning by an ex 2 ½  to plan our ladies night on the same night as a Warrant Officer’s dinner in Portsmouth.
