November 1994

Book sale conducted in the usual half yearly fashion by Gordon Macgregor. A letter from Dennis Reeve tendering his resignation was read out by the President. The Railway Hotel is changing hands but the new tenant is known to our President, who feels that we should be alright for our future meetings. We are definitely alright for the December meeting at the Railway, which will be on the 14th of December. A vote of thanks was given to John Phillipson re “Ladies Night” but it was felt that it could have been supported by a better attendance level.

September 1994

Ballot for proposed new member Mr L Kidney taken and the result was favourable. John Phillipson is to approach Clarence House re “Ladies Night Dinner” on either the 3rd or 10th of November if possible.

Peter Leach presented the Club with “The Guinness Book of Sporting Blunders”. Mr Boddy asked if the accounts were now available and it is hoped they will be ready next month. After further discussions re a Club Tie, it has been set aside due to costs.

August 1994

The President thanked John Phillipson for organising the “Forster Dinner” which had been enjoyed by the 16 members attending. He then asked if John and Terry could be giving some thought to venues for “Ladies Night” which is usually held in November. Bernard Delph has put forward a Mr Lawrence Kidney for proposed membership to the Club. Bill Jones has very kindly donated to the Club a signed copy of “Willie” by Mike Gardner, being the biography of Willie Horne. The subject of a Club Tie was again raised and the President and Treasurer were of the opinion that the Club was not really in a position to subscribe part of the initial costs. However, they are to discuss this in detail and the matter will be brought up next month.
