Minutes of last meeting
Moved: To accept the minutes of the 15 January meeting as a true and accurate record. Judith/Lynda, carried.
Actions from the January, not elsewhere on the agenda:

  • Lynda will re-send the draft AGM minutes.
  • Mike will report back on setting up a faster running pack.
  • Wim will sort out the remaining/lost trophies.


  • Financial report and bank statements (13 January to 16 February) had been circulated, thanks David.
  • David will revisit and re-send the financial report, for voting at the March meeting.
  • David will be away 3 to 25 March and Lynda away 13 March to 2 May so a further signatory is needed – Wim will sort this out.

Membership, subcommittee

  • Wim, Judith and Persephone will report back on how they see their role.
  • Non-renewing members will be phoned in April to encourage continuing membership – David will advise everyone on who to ring.


  • 2018 Open Day debrief: it was good to have more than usual members there but – in the short term – it was a disappointing return on the promotion.
  • Pack leaders meeting will be set up by Judith, 1 March, everyone is encouraged to come (Realm, Hataitai, 6 pm).
  • A BBQ and Otari run/walk will be held on 18 March; Wim will advise ASB and Meghan and publicise in the newsletter.
  • Wim will canvas members on a later start (8.30?) during the four winter months.
  • Nazir will report to the March meeting on a budget for bus trips, having talked to Mark Growcott.
  • Wim will post the calendar on the website.
  • Clarrie Gibbons event was discussed as Tony C is not doing it this year. With regret it was agreed that it is too complicated to make this a WMC event but Judith will get a phone number to Wim so that he can ask the Gibbons family if WMC could do something else in CG’s name.

Admin, website

  • Wim is editing this month’s newsletter, thank you.
  • Wim will co-ordinate an exercise to sharpen and update the website, bring a plan to next meeting.
  • Wim will modify his Round the Bays blog to a generic training guide and put it on website.
  • Judith will post another training guide.
  • Lynda will do a short list of what the Committee is looking at, for each newsletter.

General business

  • Goals for 2018 to be discussed at the March meeting – everyone is encouraged to email some ideas ahead of the meeting.
  • Mike will report to the March meeting on how WMC might manage donations to charities, using Judith’s paper as a guide.
  • Persephone recommends Achilles as a worthwhile organisation https://www.achillesnewzealand.org/home
  • It was agreed to drop the uniform and green prescription ideas off the agenda.
  • Downstairs meeting room 1 (left hand) is booked for the rest of the year – see calendar in Dropbox.
