October Committee Meeting

The 1970 Committee got away to a business–like start on the day after the A.G.M. at a meeting with all members present.  Officers have been elected (see page 128) and ‘Fred’ Atwell co-opted as Climbing Secretary in the absence of any other member to do this job.  Full minutes are being sent to each member of the Committee – together with definite actions, which all have agreed to treat very seriously. The 1970 Committee have also agreed that they hold a collective responsibility for the discharge of all the duties of their members.  They realise that they are faced with what could well be the most difficult year in the Club’s history and are resolved that, at any rate, they will not fail through any lack of organisation.

John Carter, Graham Wilton-Jones and Gordon Rowels were elected to membership of the club.

Most of the Committee’s time was, somewhat naturally, taken up with plans for the new Belfry.  In brief, the financial position now looks possible – although there must be no slackening off in efforts from ALL MEMBERS to contribute in every possible way and, providing we get the insurance offer to GO AHEAD and start building on Monday the 20th October 1969.  The Committee position, which will of course include the position of work on the new hut, will be reported to all members monthly in the B.B.
