Good Afternoon to all our members.
Last Thursday night at our regular venue, the Village Green , we hosted our June general meeting . Our Guest Speakers were the guys from Motec who gave an insight into this fantastic Australian company who are taking on the world in terms of Data logging and in car info for all forms of motorsport. It certainly was a very interesting and informative part of the evening and we again thank them for their attendance and also their giveaways. Yes all you members who couldn't be there missed out and like the month previous some lucky attendees had a prize or two to head home with.
The other main issue of the night was the tabeling of the proposed new club rules in its Two(2) versions. The revised rules of the club have come about due the Department of Consumer Affairs passing into law a new set of "Model Rules " for all incorporated clubs in November 2012 with a Twelve Month consultation and adoption period to end in Nov 2013. We as a club via your Committee therefore have been working on these new club rules during the early part of this year to meet the November Deadline . It should be pointed out that our previous club rules , that we still currently work by , include most things that were required but simple needed updating. We , as your committee also decided that this maybe the time to expand on our club membership base by changing the wording on the " purpose " of the club to read Performace Subaru's instead of the wording from the existing rules that say "Turbo-charged Subaru's . It was decided at Committee level that if we were modifying the club rules to come in line with the new "model Rules ' then we should put it to our members that the change the wording in the section headed " Pupose " to read as above. Any change to the club rules has to be put to the members and be voted on by 10% of the Current membership , this therefore requires approx 33 members to be present at the nominated meeting . We have to vote either way on the new rules as either Version 1 or Version 2 will need to be passed , these rules have been available to all via our web site . So to summarise ; our meeting last week was short by 2 members present to vote on these new rules and so this vote will be held over till the next official meeting on 18th July 2013. I would urge those that attended last week and all others who are available to be present then so we can finalise this matter as required.
So to close i would thank you for reading the above and if there are any questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or any other members our your committee.
Until next time , when i will make it more light-hearted read , see you all at an event soon.
