Rupert welcome such a good turnout and admitted this was his first event this year due to other commitments. He thanked everyone for their help and support to make the CVRDA a continuing success.

5 Treasurer’s report.
Lois circulated printouts of the details of the accounts. The membership contributions are keeping us afloat. The main expenses being the website and the RYA membership. There is a small surplus.

6 Fixtures.
Peter: We need a venue for 2015 Nationals . Alan W said Roadford could be a possibility again but said he would like to suggest we change the date. Possibly late July. ( Travel difficulty on the Bank Holiday w/e and that there is another event clashing at Roadford) Alan will look into possible dates and report back.

7 Membership
Garry: He and Lois co-ordinate over this and there is a steady trickle of membership money coming in.

8 Webmaster. All OK on that front

9AOB
Garry proposed that we award Hon. Life Membership to Keith and Mick for their contribution over the years. This was seconded by Sandy and agreed (this was carried out at the prize giving and both Keith and Mick were very grateful)
Alan Williams (i/c lost classes) welcomed the low rider moths and felt this should develop. Let’s spread the word further encouraging such ‘groups’
Ian Marshall felt we could do publicity to continue sreading the word. Kathryn W. suggested using some of the surplus to print some flyers for clubs, dinghy show etc. Rupert could print.

Next meeting at the 2015 Nationals ( to be announced).
