  • Mary reminded members that the 6 monthly fees for membership are well and truly due.
  • Anne spoke on the driver simulator’s increase in fees.
  • Grahame advised the members that there is a meeting of interest on creating an Advance Coolamon Committee similar to the very active and successful Advance Ganmain Committee.  The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday the 12th of March at 6.30pm at the Sports Club.  Grahame would like to see a few of us at the meeting.
  • Henk spoke on the Working With Children Checks and encouraged those whose WWCC# has expired or non existent to please renew and apply.  John G is willing to help anyone navigate the application on line.
  • Henk advised us on the progress of the CRCTB 2024 edition.  Henk thanked Brian Bear for his efforts with Junee and ongoing in Temora and Marrar.
  • Bear said that he was getting excellent response from advertisers old and new.  The Junee Funeral Services want the front page.  To date there are now 7 who are going to advertise and we have just begun.
  • Bondy said that PE Adrian is in the Himalayas and will be back around the 22nd February.

We had plenty of time for fellowship and banter as both the S@A and the Cpl. were not present tonight, we did not have a fines session.
