Report Back From AGM

Postby Ian » Wed Jul 01, 2015 9:14 am

Here are the main matters arising

1) Club finances: we currently have a surplus of £2,638 compared to a deficit last year of £1,271.
2) 237 vehicles turned up at the Bash. There were also lots of day visitors on Saturday. Next year a £2 charge will be made for day visitors and friend/family vehicles. This will be donated to the "Bongo the Elephant" fund.
3) The venues for next year's meetings were announced (see viewtopic.php?f=37&t=69277)
4) Following the success yet again of Saturday night's band, especially their rendition of Silver Machine, The Festival Experience have been re-booked for next year.
5) Congratulations to Simon Jones for being awarded Bongonaut of the Year (more at viewtopic.php?f=4&t=57455&start=30#p658582)
6) Jeff Fordham proposed a rule change. It is a sign that should be made to other Bongo drivers to acknowledge that you are an ex-Bongo owner. The Rules Committee will examine this proposal and report back.

Interesting stuff. Looking at (2), is it possible that this years freebies might become next years members and Bash bookers. Wouldn't want a £2 entrance fee to put anyone off (don't think the cash would but the message it sends might). Sorry I didn't make the AGM - too behind on packing up as usual after talking to lots of people about Bongo stuff - no change there then, except I'm getting older and even slower :lol:

Ummm .. Maybe my intentions where right ... but I was not doing the right thing myself ..

I used to attend quite a few TEOC meets .. even a couple with .. the "other Bongo" one..

With my sons poor health (he as not been out of this room for 18 months now) there as been no chance of even making a cuppa in my Bongo ..let alone get the drive away out of the shed ..!!

So I 'contribute' what I can on Bongo Fury .... also several Face book sites .. where I have been plugging the Bongo Bash .. it's dedicated / communicative / knowledgeable / approachable / members for several weeks now .. even posting up links / postcodes / maps to Stourport ..

Strange really as it was on my mind if this interested poster made it .. if so what they thought ..??

Yes they did make it and I think they did a deal on a Bongo that was for sale there, a JAL one with side-lifting roof

Can anyone remember what Jeff's proposed sign was?

Washing windscreen while making strange hand signals? Or is that a degree of the Masons?

Wasn't it wind down the window and point to the roof?
