Action Points

  1. Push to recruit as many freshers as possible at the upcoming fair. Current strategy deemed acceptable, but there are inherent problems with a lack of knowledge of caving as it is not a particularly high profile sport .
  2. Consider changing trinity TGMs to earlier in the term since absenteeism is probably due to exam pressure, absenteeism in turn resulted in an underproductive meeting.
  3. John Pybus to update club accounts. Perhaps help is needed?
  4. President’s invite. The club would like to remind members that during 25-27 November all members past and present are invited to the old school house, Chapel le Dale for a relaxed weekend with optional caving.
