BANJER 37 MOTORSAILER CLUB 2010 GENERAL MEETING

Notes of the Members Meeting in Veere on 19 August 2010.
Veere Yacht Club, 09:30 hours.


The Commodore, Guillermo Gefaell, opened the Meeting welcoming everyone to Veere and to the 4th Members Meeting. He thanked the Organizing Committee for all their work.

The Commodore proposed to keep the subscription at 50 for three years from the meeting. He explained that in future there would only be one Code for the Web Site and this would only be given to paying members and would give access only to the members and boat details. All other pages would be public. The Treasurer, Ton Koot, said he would issue the codes to members after payment and would change the code every three years.

It was announced by the Treasurer that the Club had about 1500 in funds and we would consider a larger and better quality burgee and a new cap and that the funds enabled us to put down deposits etc. for the next meeting.

The Commodore proposed that Mm Monique Lefevre join the Board representing the many French speaking members of the Club. This was universally agreed and Monique joined the board on the platform.

The was a debate about the time and place for the next meeting – in 2013. It was generally agreed that earlier in the year would be better – possibly in June before the coastal areas were so busy. The Commodore said that whilst he would like to have a meeting in France or the UK the practicalities of boat locations were such that the Netherlands remained the best. It was agreed that a small town (just like Middleburg or Enkhuizen) in the north of the Netherlands would be best for 2013 with Antwerp in Belgium being the nomination for 2016!

The Meeting closed so the members could sail in the Banjer fleet back to Middleburg.

The Secretary.
