The PI went on really well. Committee extended thanks to SR for his organisation.
(TG and Lou arrived.)
At this point there was a discussion on the last point raised by JP. Lou asked how that should apply for personal kit. RP asked if that's not included in the membership fee. JP said we can then better subsidise unpopular weekend trips. This item was postponed to the agenda.
Thanks to all for an amazing Fresher's fair, the most successful one in recent years. As of the end of MT 2007, of 40 novices have been on at least one trip. YH would like to thank in particular LW, RP, CJD and SG. The Chair proposed a token of thanks to the organisers.
The Chair conducted a vote at this stage. Motion: Should there be no charged till Christmas and should there be a Christmas gear order?
For 8, Against 1 , Motion passed.
The first stage went on really well, with 21 firm members. Let's crack on the next stage of fundraising.
