Membership Secretary’s Report Dear Members, Not much to report this month,, as I have been busy preparing the annual Subs Su Notices for inclusion with this month's Hornet. You will notice a slight increase this year, the first for some time. Increases in our printing and postage costs have mainly been bee responsible, although the pre-sorting sorting and bagging work carried out by the Collating Team on the last Tuesday of every month has been responsible for our ability to claim Print Post status, and thus lock into much cheaper postage rates. rates. Over the course of a year, this results in the saving of many 100's for your $$$$. A big thank you to o John, Fay, Fred and Jenny for the effort that they put into this each month. We also have a heap of fun and tell a few good jokes too. Great feedback from Members with regards to our new Meeting Rooms in Deepdene. Even though the parking is a bit hotch-potch hot at times,, the overall result has been very positive. The rooms are well appointed, very clean, have excellent kitchen facilities (which include a very modern electronic oven that our Catering Officer has almost gotten to grips with now) and superb audio visual facilities that include an overhead digital projector, cordless roving microphone, video/DVD player and a very good speaker system. system Now there is certainly no good excuse for not attending our General Meetings tings. This month it is my pleasure to welcome w the following New Member: # 1347 Mr Keith Beare from Kareela, Kareela NSW........................................ ..... Looking for a Wolseley 24/80

I know that everyone will do their utmost to make these Members welcome whenever they attend meetings. rallies and outings. I will finish my report this month by thanking Neil Whiffin for his organisation of the second outing for April to the Bluescope Steel Railway Society complex at Ha astings. The weather was beautiful, the venue, clubrooms and catering were superb,, and the trains were just magnificent. We will certainly be including a re-run to this spectacular venue again soon. Cheers....Graham Keys
