Social Secretary’s Report:

The Ladies night is now fixed for the 6th June at the Aquarium. The request to use the wardroom at RMB Stonehouse  was unsuccessful on this occasion as they are having an audit on the date in question. The other alternative was to use the Seniors mess. Unfortunately on the day in question , the Mess is coming out of a major refit and therefore would not be available should the refit move right by any amount. Our contact was against booking this date just in case. He would however be very happy for us to enquire in the future.

At the Aquarium for numbers of 50 to 60 dining will take place in one of the tunnels with either fishes swimming around us or sharks. Prices tbc post recce by the President. Bar and disco will finish at 00.30. Unfortunately I will not be attending I’m off to Scotland on holiday with the missus.

The Mason’s lodge in Stoke has been booked for the Gentleman’s evening 7th November and I am probably off to India again in the first week of November.

 

GI Prout has kindly volunteered to investigate and run with the proposed  GI’s meeting in Gib for March 2015. ( PREZ: Leroy please touch base with G I Dave Hunt who has the gen)

AOB: 

 

GI Baker T. On Tuesday I travelled all the way to Birmingham to watch my favourite band ‘The Wild Hearts’    The guy who was taking me up there had a road traffic accident prior to the event so  was unable to drive.  Mrs Baker stepped into the Breach went with me despite hating The Wild Hearts. We missed the first band ignored the second band and hit the bar. Went to see The Wild Hearts after 4 songs i got conned into crowd surfing and got kicked out as a result.
