Secretary’s Report:

Social Secretary’s Report:

Sorry for my absence for a couple of months but a new baby got in the way. I have been in touch with the New Continental Hotel about our Ladies night and they can accommodate us on the weekend of XXXXXXXX. They are going to e-mail me with prices for around 60 people at about £30 to £40 a head.

GI Walker- “My lad is back in Stonehouse, do you want me to see if they can fit us in”?

Social Sec- “If you can please that would be great. That’s it from me”.

 

Vice President:

Constitution is going well, changing just a few little bits and pieces, it will be ready for next months meeting for people to have a look. It will be ready for the AGM so that gives you a couple of months to have a read and a think about it and give me some feedback.  

           

Presidents Report: 

The last meeting held in XXXXXXX was a great night, I think everyone enjoyed themselves and in my opinion, we gave a fantastic insight into what our Association is about. Whether or not it was successful remains to be seen. I know the majority of the POs Course are Pompey Natives so I hope our migration over the Tamar River may have helped the RNGIA with potential new members for them and our new Killicks will join us.
