The election of the Section officials was as follows:

Treasurer - Julian Duquemin
Publicity Officer - Philip Stone

The following local publicity representatives were elected:

TORQUAY - Paul Oakley
NEWTON ABBOT - Richard Burge
ASHBURTON TOWN - Craig McCracken
ASHBURTON SCHOOL - Craig McCracken
BUCKFASTLEIGH - Wesley Watkins
SOUTH BRENT - John Hayes

A number of motions were considered, all proposed by the Section Committee:

A: That the Section, recognising the enormous value of its members being able to use computer equipment and games owned by the Dart Computer Club during Friday socials, Saturday informal socials and after many cycle rides, should make a donation of £30 towards Computer Club funds in March 1997 on the understanding that all Computer Club equipment and games will then be made freely available to CTC members during the coming year.

The motion was amended to “.. should make a donation of all the coming year’s profits up to a maximum of £50 ..”

The amended motion was carried.

B: That the entry charge to all Friday social activities should be increased to 40p to ensure that further donations of perhaps £20-£30 per year may be made to the Computer Club for as long as members continue to use the equipment.

Dayle suggested that the charge should be increased to 50p. It was agreed that 45p should be charged this year but that members could give more if they wished and a charge of 50p would be considered next year.

The motion was carried.


ANY OTHER BUSINESS

1. It was proposed by Luke Whiting that people who deliberately skid on the road should be banned from club activities for a week. There was much agreement and a motion was compiled as follows:

That the Safety Team should take immediate action against regular members deliberately skidding or riding dangerously on the roads, to include a ban after initial warnings.

The motion was carried almost unanimously.

There being no further business to discuss, the meeting closed at 8.30pm.
