President's Report

Dear FellowMembers, Since my last report much has happened in thelife of our Club. The Board elections conducted in November saw two of our directors, Iris Morgan and Warren French, not offering themselves for re-election. I thank them on your behalf for their wholehearted contribution over past years to the successful running of the Club. Their places have been filled by Doug Cumming and Charles Lucre. The Board elected Vice President, Lindsay Payne and our Treasurer,Stephen Bates, as Convenors respectively of the House, Supply & Staff Committee and the Finance Committee. I look forward to working closely with both of them and with our ubiquitous General Manager, Warren Lewis. Our Annual General Meeting was conducted on 28th November in Cello’s Restaurant with 54 members in attendance including our Patron Tony Lauer. I thank all those whose contributions ensured a prompt and effi cient dispatch of the business to be conducted.

Dear Fellow Members, Since I last reported to you, much has happened in the life of our Club. Firstly our hotel has been upgraded from category 3.5 star to 4 star. This not only refl ects our improving standards but also brings us into a more lucrative market and your Board looks forward to increased income from our hotel business. To keep pace with our new category the Board approved and the Chief Executive Offi cer has carried out in an effi cient, timely and cost effi cient way the upgrading of 40 of our 83 bedrooms (together with the corridors) as Phase 1 of our hotel refurbishment program. The second phase is being prepared and costed for Board approval.In addition, new cabling will be installed to improve television reception in the rooms.

President's Report

Dear Members, The previous President’s Message came to you from our beloved late President, Bill Wright. That message was received by most of you just before Christmas. When Bill wrote his last message to you he was still confident of returning to lead and guide this Club in 2005. His words were “I look forward to meeting up with you in the New Year”. In another part of this magazine you will be reminded of some of Bill’s professional and personal history and his place within this Club. Our rules do not foresee such a tragic event as the death of a President whilst in office and there is no provision to appoint a President in the circumstances. The Board Members unanimously asked me to act in the role of President until the next elections.
