    DDVVMC MANAGEMENT TEAM 2011-2012

    The annual meeting of the club was held with the position of treasurer not being filled. This is a vital position and I feel confident that this position will be filled by a volunteer at the September meeting.

    I congratulate all the people who have made themselves available to help run this wonderful club. Remember the more you put in the more you will get out from the club.

    The petrol consumption rally was a huge success with approximately 45 entrants including cars and bikes from other clubs attending. Congratulations to Graham Allum for running such an outstanding event. He has set a high standard for the first rally this financial year.

    The modifications to the kitchen have had a setback with a misunderstanding of prices. This has allowed time to consider other options. I will push ahead with plans and prices in September after the meeting.

    The club house is being well used including our group of indoor bowlers. It would appear that someone else is also using the bowling mats without the clubs knowledge. I would appreciate a call from those involved to assist with booking of the rooms. Trevor Hoffmann
