Future Meetings

Meeting 16 January

Tuesday 20 February will be our next breakfast meeting at the motel. In view of our long standing relationship with Minda Inc, we will have as guest speaker, Cathy Miller, CEO of Minda Inc. No doubt Cathy will have lots to tell us about the future directions of Minda, particularly in light of land developments that have, and are taking place on the North Brighton site. Amazing changes to the site over the past six or seven years since our shed stood on the area now occupied by the “Brighton Dunes” development.

After the Christmas—New Year break, it was good to catch up with everyone, including a few people who we hadn’t seen for a while. AG Dini Whyte paid a visit and it was good to see prospective member Marusha again. A fundraising “brainstorm’ was held and ideas will be collated and discussed by the Board and at the next Club Assembly. The successful “Fund My Neighbourhood” projects which we put forward and which will be managed by Holdfast Bay Council were mentioned. These will be signed off soon. The Seacliff playground, (Angus Neale Reserve), will go out for tender soon.

On 27 February, normally a meeting “off week”, there will be an special evening meeting, 6.30pm for 7.00pm at the Adelaide Sailing Club, Barcoo Road West Beach. Please refer to Secretary Barb’s email of 31 January for detais of the menu available at the Clubhouse Bistro.
