Secretary’s Report:  

Nothing from me

 

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.

 

Vice President:

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.

           

Presidents Report: 

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 your number.

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.

 

WELCOME TO

GI PO’s Course, Killicks Course & Sgt Morrel

       GI Pilkington.

 

Happy Birthdays: in February

GI Perry (16th). Happy Birthday.

 

Presidents Charity:

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.

      I 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

      you guys.

 

      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.

 

      GI Tidball

      Retirement party went well, thank you all those that attended and retirement so far is great.

 

      GI Prout

(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.

        

SEMPER STRENUISSIMA

        

Yours Aye
