FUN RUN REVIEW
Please refer to Minutes distributed this week that included:
  • Positive meetings with Northern Beaches Council
  • Start the application process for 2020
  • Tentative plans to improve the 2k walk to include family entertainment
  • Offer of a Fathers’ Day breakfast at a local venue
  • Meetings with local schools to recruit volunteers who need to undertake community service or Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Communication with Grassrootz and designated charities to advise them of plans for 2020.
BADGES
  • After general discussion it was agreed to proceed with the larger white badge that can be designed with or without a classification.
WELCOME TO GUESTS (potential club members)
Following feedback from a recent guest, it was decided to:
  • Give a welcome pack to the guest on the morning of their visit to the Club
  • Have a club member “on the door” at every meeting, to let people into the building and to welcome them
  • Introduce the guest to each club member at the start of the meeting
  • Review the current welcome brochure to include a photograph of each club member, their name and classification
WELCOME BROCHURE
  • Change to correct branding and update. (Ginny/James?)
CLUSTER MEETING REPORT
Two of our club members attended the meeting.
  • Generally the northern beaches clubs are keen to get projects up and running with all clubs working together. John Pack recalled that we previously had joint events/functions together with Balgowlah Club
  • There was discussion about how to improve all Clubs’ individual websites. Considerable savings could be made with one company developing a “generic” website (including mandatory branding). The websites would be individual to each club but with generic branding. For the proposal to be viable, at least five clubs would need to be involved.
DAVE DARCY DINNER
  • Indications are that our Club may need two tables of ten guests 
  • Club members are asked to book as soon as possible as there is a limit on numbers for the event.
  • An MC has been arranged
  • Ken would like to give a vote of thanks at the end of the evening
  • Ken will talk to Ted about the Dave Darcy motor bike video presentation and whether this could be shown on the evening (if appropriate)
  • LINK www.trybooking.com/561421
 
FOUNDATION
  • Thank you John Pack for your Tower of $100.
  • Club members are asked to keep saving in the “towers” and give to David when full
DISTRICT VOCATIONAL AWARDS
  • A Club member must be present at the District Conference to be included in the Awards. .
