Presidents Bull - August 2015

Greetings all - just a few items of Club news and some pleas for assistance follow.

The AGM was held last weekend.  Thanks to those who could make it.  We heard a typically excellent presentation from Stu Trueman complaining about coastal camping options in the UK - and a few other observations from his most recent circumnavigation.  Thanks also to Tony Murphy for joining the committee as Vice President and to those who renominated.  The AGM minutes will be posted on the website shortly when complete.

We still have a Committee vacancy for the treasurer/secretary role.  Please consider whether you could take on this important role and email or ring me if you would like to discuss what the role entails.

The next Rock n Roll will be at Jimmy's Beach Port Stephens March 11-14, 2016.  Block this out in your diaries immediately.

We will need a new Rock n Roll coordinator after next years' event.  If you might be interested in taking this on for 2017, please consider putting your hand up to assist Dave Linco for the 2016 event so you know what needs to be done the following year

The website upgrade remains in the 'incomplete' tray.  The next job is to upgrade the backbone of our site to the current Joomla version.  If the latter statement is not goobledegook to you and you have some experience with Joomla, please consider volunteering to assist.  We also have the beginnings of a social networking platform on a development website courtesy of Tim Wolstonecroft.  To develop this further we need a moderator who will manage the contents when we go live.  If you would be interested in this role or in discussing what it might entail, please drop me an email

Experience tells me that few members read this far down the emails so I will save the rest for next time.

Regards and see you on the water
Your President for one more year (and no more), Campbell Tiley (president[at]
