Presidents Report – January 2017
The special information meeting at the Parksville Civic Centre was attended by more than 60 club members. Thank you to all of you who came out. The reason for the meeting was to supply information on the workings of the BCWF and where our dues to them went. The request for the meeting goes back to last spring when a general meeting asked the Federation to supply speakers to speak about Federation programs. Members seemed to find the information useful. It’s always good to be able to speak directly to the people spending your fees and making decisions that relate to our enjoyment of the outdoors. Notes will be available of the proceedings later this week.
Our next General Meeting is January 31 at the Legion in Qualicum, followed by our AGM on Feb 28th at the Parksville Centre again. Leonard Krog will speak to members at that meeting. Finally, on March 11th we will have our annual fund raiser banquet at the Qualicum Civic centre. Tickets are $50 and available from either range or members of the banquet committee. This is our major fund raiser that helps supplement our fees for the year. Attached is a comparison of fees for the largest clubs on the island. It is supplied to give you an idea of how much it costs to run our club as compared to similar sized ones in Region 1.
