Chairman’s Chat – May 2013

Hi everyone,

This last month has been full of good stuff and I’ve managed to make the most of a variety of events, from the healthy (parkruns and Richard Cross’s Tarporley walk) to the not so healthy (The CBAS German Beer night and a Turkish Feast at Istanbul BBQ). It was great to see CBAS coming back strong with great drinks, German beer trivia and a big turnout, and the food at the Turkish place on Brook Street more than lived up to its reviews. Everyone who went on Jo’s Elterwater YHA Lakes weekend has said what a great trip it was, and we have more weekends away coming up throughout the year.

Thanks to all who made it to this year’s AGM. I’m happy to say I remain in the hot seat and have a refreshed committee in place to make 2013-14 a fantastic fun filled year! Huge thank yous to Jo Dennis, Alex Ford and Sally Champion who have now stepped down after many years of service on the committee; I can’t begin to say what they’ve given to our club and for so long, and hope we’ll continue to see lots of them and enjoy their events this year. For those who have shuffled chairs, see the back of this bulletin. I like to extend a big welcome to the new faces of Jenni and Hilary on events; they’ll be at club nights soon with the diary, ideas and words of encouragement in the hope of filling the bulletins with a host of events! We also welcome to Leanne for publicity; she’ll be taking our social media presence to a new level and finding some new ways to make sure anyone looking to boost their social life in the area knows we’re here for them. Thanks to all the committee for the work they put in!

Please pay your membership renewal promptly; other than paypal it’s fine to bring a cheque to club night and give it to Andy P or myself. My hopes for this year are that every member will read the bulletin, find some things in there they’d like to do and makes a note in their diary to come along; if you only take a look when you’re at a loose end you’ll miss all kinds of good stuff! Hopefully a few more of you will be able to add to the variety and volume of events by hosting something yourselves this year.

Hope to see you all soon,
