Social Secretary’s Report:
3 Wise Monkeys Trophy Games Night with the TASIs for the
March Meeting. They will meet us at our usual venue and I
hope we muster a strong turnout to defend our Title. Smalley
eats to be provided.
It is looking like the Ladies Night will be held in the
summer months as the preferred venue, Plymouth
Aquarium was not financially viable.
Welcome to the Killicks and PO’s courses. At the moment we
sell t shirts and polo shirts with the associations design
on them and I’m looking at getting them redesigned to
generate some income to the association.
Pussers Rum sponsor our website so I’m going to see if they
can donate something to us.
Haven’t heard from anyone who’d like to receive a reminder
text for the meetings. If you would, let me know and give me
I visit all the courses and tell them about our association
and the pick up from those talks have proved fruitless and
fresh blood is not coming through. So we thought we would
come to you. So welcome to you all and the token Bootie, the
future of our branch.
GI PO’s Course, Killicks Course & Sgt Morrel
GI Perry (16th). Happy Birthday.
Give a Child a Chance help Plymouth children and adolescents
with emotional, behavioural and mental health difficulties.
Many of the children who come to the club are on the Autism
Spectrum and so we can help by buying specialist sensory
equipment to use at the club. Things like adapted toys for
balance and gross motor skills, expanding the model railway
they’re building, buying some remote control cars etc.
Portsmouth site is still down

Tonight’s raffle raised £85 towards the Association
was at home by myself cus the enemy had gone shopping and
you sent an email asking
who was coming, I thought I’ll answer that but I
couldn’t send it I was hitting different keys and kicking it
and you replied, yup got that. What I want to know is,
How the F*&% did I do that. Any way great to see
Oh one more thing, this is for the new guys, last year
we had a monthly meeting in Gib, there was about 12
of us who went, organised by Leroy, next year we are
thinking of Malta and some of you have to come cus
we will be going on a Malta dog hunt.
Retirement party went well, thank you all those that
attended and retirement so far is great.
(Addressing the Career Courses) When you go to Pompey you
will be invited to go to a meeting, my advice would be to
go. You might like it, you might not. You don’t have to
join, and if you do join you don’t have to go every month.
For those on the Killicks course the Pompey Association does
not allow Killicks into the Association.
The Meeting closed at 20.42
Meeting 308th will be held next month
See you at the next Meeting.
