GI Danny Daniel RNGIA – 15 September 2016
Generally speaking, the Minutes of the 314th
meeting were well received and almost all agreed that it was
a true & accurate representation of the Meeting. GI Lewis
argued they were inaccurate as they had him down in the
apologies when he was in attendance. The Pres reasoned that
pitching up just as the meeting had come to an end didn’t
constitute “attendance” and that the accuracy of the Minutes
remains intact. GI Luker reported a typo in the Social
Secretary’s report but was duly informed the revised
spelling of “arranging” will now be “arraning” from this
point on and he need not concern himself.
314th minutes were proposed by GI Bennett and
Seconded by GI Tidball
Apologies sent for missing the meeting
due to work commitments.

Social Secretary’s Report:

a few more maybe’s. On the table is the attendee’s and menu
choice, give them back to me ASAP, Nick will e-mail every
one, send them back to him or me, the book for the dinner
will be closed at the next meeting. Initially it was £20
for members and £25 for non members looking at figures I
would like to if possible reduce the price and the
Association take a hit but that has got to be put to the
floor. However £20 and £25 would just about cover the cost
of the meal and the Port that we have to buy from them at
A quick discussion took place and was decided to leave
prices as they are.
Constitution is going well, I’ve had some input but I need
more please guys. So have a read and give me your thoughts.

I’ve spoken to Veterans with Dogs and I will endeavour to
pop over to their base in Newton Abbott in the not too
distant future. We are nearly at our target and for that, I
thank everyone who has helped us get this far. Next month’s

hope to reach the target for the Veterans Charity by Jan 17.

As we know the meeting last time was over at Raleigh
and the courses were impressed with what they

were Pompey rates so a few of them may well give
Pompey GI’s a go, so some positives with new blood.
