Induction of two new members

During the October meeting our Chairman, Chris Reynolds, inducted two new members into Stafford 41 Club. They have tried to cling on to Stafford Round Table as long as possible and resisted joining us but they have finally succumbed. Chris broke with tradition and actually used the correct wording from National for such an occasion.

Welcome to our latest members.

Notes from the AGM

This is a quick summary of Main points from the AGM for those who missed it.

The meeting was attended by 19 members, four active and one honourary member of Stafford Round Table and also the incoming Chairman of RT Area 5, Shiv Passap, of which Stafford RT is a member, having transferred from Area 22 a few years back. Stafford RT is struggling for members and is looking to 41 Club for help in introducing new members.

Our Club currently has 35 full members and 20 Country members plus 2 honourary members.

The accounts were approved, a working surplus of £70 was made last year thanks to a profit on Ladies Night and raffle contributions. Subs remain at £15 and are now due for the coming year.

Chris Reynolds is now Chairman and Tony Green is the new Vice Chairman.

Brett Phillips has taken on the Secretary/Treasurer role.

Nick Sandy is leaving Stafford later in the summer to live in Wales. Jim Goodwin has taken on the Social Officer role.

Chris Barton has finally managed to stand down as IRO after about 20 years. His job is to be managed by a small committee of Chris Reynolds, Ian Henderson and Rodney Thomas. (See Chris, it takes three of them to do your job). Stewart Learoyd has also offered to investigate and organise an overseas IRO trip.

Meetings will be arranged by Chris Reynolds with help from Peter Quine, Mike Heenan and others.

The next meeting will be a pub games night at the Constitutional Club with a two course meal for £9.50, details to follow by the usual channel. The TT Trophy will be a bowls evening on 18th July, RT are getting practice in, they’ll need to.

Update on Region 11

The following update has been received from our National Councillor. He is standing for a National Board position and a new Region 11 Councillor is required. Anyone interested?

Nick Morcumb said:

National Membership and Round Table Liaison Officer

As you will be aware I am a great supporter of 41 Club and Round Table both locally and nationally in helping both to remain active and grow.

We need to support our own clubs, support round table and encourage more past tablers to join your club. Please give me your feedback so I can help you.

I am running for National Board in April and with your support will be competing against one other National Councillor from Somerset.

Wish me luck !

I am the end of my role as National Councillor for Region 11 so will be passing that honour to someone else.  They should shortly be asking you for nominations so this is a bit of advance notice to give it some thought. I have thoroughly enjoyed the role and have taken part in lots of brilliant activities with you all.
