President’s Report Hi Everybody, We are now well into the summer, I hope everybody is enjoying the weather. With the approach of September, I would like to remind members that the AGM is coming up on September 5th. This is the time when you can express your concerns and suggestions for the clubs future. Maybe it time for you to become a member of the board. Several positions are up for election, why not join us? Diane & Marty have worked very hard this year with the entertainment events; we have now a full calendar till the end of the year. So please support them by sending your checks to Marty. We are looking for volunteers to help in the repainting of the out side of the club, please contact Nigel so that we can firm up a date. Looking forward to seeing you all at the club. Regards Mike

Trivia For those of you who tried last months sample trivia questions, here are the answers: 1) Burger King 2) The Declaration of Independence 3) Nepal 4) Raven 5) Cosmo. Come along to one of our trivia nights and give it a go, it’s a fun team effort not one on one answering. You don’t have to come as a team; we’ll help you with some fellow players. Don’t forget our next fun night will be August 8th and the league will begin on September 12th (registration at 8.00 pm play starts at 8.30 pm).
