Minutes from the FMCC AGM
Sunday 6th January 2019
Scout HQ, Ruislip
Members present: Mr Brown, Mr Edwards, Mr Lattimer, Mr Narracott, Mr Rowley, Mr Zetter
8pm sharp - with all members present except Richard, the meeting was opened -
but before the clattering of balls in wooden box could be heard, a man turned up
with three heavy filing cabinets! Neil said they needed man-handling up into the loft.
Much wheezing and puffing ensued while John mounted the new steps (with
handrail) and pulled each cabinet up out of the hands of the five Fatmen below.
Neil thanked us for our efforts and also for the floor sealing done over the Christmas
New Year period. Back to business… after noting once again how Dave has
become an enviable ‘fanny magnet’ - all members to start growing goatee beards.
CHAIRMAN’s 2018 REVIEW
Mr Edward’s, reviewed the year's activities. He also informed us that he’d been
suffering from a corrupt disk problem - not that anyone seemed to have noticed, but
we were thankful for his admission.
TREASURER’s 2018 REPORT
The Treasurer announced that we're £9 down on last year and that our savings had
earnt £1.59 interest. Everyone applauded his accountancy skills in achieving this
Ian, Dave and John were candidates and five balls rolled Ian’s way, 5 rolled Dave’s
way and 4 for John.
After further ball tossing, Dave received 2 balls and Ian 4… hence Mr Narracott
became the 2019 Chairman.
Pad remained Secretary
Keith remained Treasurer
