A reminder that WARG’s next meeting on Monday May 2nd is our AGM – and will feature an equipment auction at the close of proceedings.
As usual, the main business of the AGM is to elect a new Committee for the coming year. Whilst many of WARG’s office holders intend to re-nominate – including myself as Secretary – this is an opportunity for others who are financial members of WARG and want to contribute more to the running of the group.
WARG’s committee aims to always operate in a collaborative fashion, and not to take over discussions or make decisions which should be the property of the wider group. The AGM is an important night and we look forward to seeing you there, at WARG’s usual meeting venue, the Peter Hughes Scout Communications Centre, corner of Gibbs St and Welshpool Rd, East Cannington.
All are welcome to attend. Doors will be open at 7, for a 7:30 start. Treasurer John will be on hand to take payments from any members who haven’t yet renewed. A short General meeting will also take place, alongside the AGM. Tea & coffee are available, and there’s usually time for socialising before and after the meeting.
WARG Treasurer John VK6JAH advises that the auction is on behalf of the estate of Syd VK6SMH (SK) who sadly passed away last year, his family have asked WARG to assist in disposing of remaining equipment. All the gear is said to be in working order, but the WARG Committee has had no opportunity to fully test any item. As such no warranty can be given regarding the working condition or otherwise of any item offered.
All procedes from the sale of the equipment will go to WARG funds.
