MINUTES of the 2014 FMCC AGM


All members were present. Venue: Scout Hut. Date: Sunday 5th January 2014

Well it was all very excitingÖ. Ian didn't want to stand as Chairman for a third term of office, so the voting box was dusted off and the balls soon started clattering this way or that.

John had more balls than the other candidates, so became Chairman.

He was presented with his ceremonial items of office (the box, but not the gun which Ian seems to have misplaced).  

Pad remained Secretary. The treasurer reported that our bank balance stands at £32.52p, so Alan retained his treasurership and duly collected £80 subs from members.


As for activities, there was quite a todo about it all. Prior to the meeting, Fatmen got their FatWACs's out and the secretary merged them togetherÖ a difficult process that requires dexterity and patience.

1) 5/6 April

2) 21/22 June

3) 4/5 October
