Matters Arising



President’s report

The President highlighted some of the problems for 2022. He then announced that he no longer wished to stand as club President and at this point he left the meeting.


Treasurer’s Report

Margaret distributed printed copies of her report. This stated an opening balance 100.63 euros and a closing balance of 108.83 euros. 


Election of Officers

Richard volunteered to take over the club leadership, but more as a coordinator for the various club activities rather than in the role as the a club president. This was widely welcomed by the members with a plea for more training workshops. (See below for details of the next workshop later in December 2022).

Margaret agreed to continue as club treasurer.

No other positions were elected at this time.


Subscriptions 2023

Margaret confirmed with current club activities/plans recommended the fees stay the same. That is 20 euros each with a fee of 30 euros for couples.


Competition Subjects 2023

A list of subjects had already been circulated and published on the club website. However it was decided to review these subject at each monthly meeting with a view to making them more linked to associated workshops or learning.


Any Other Business

It was agreed by all the members that more training and workshops were required. In response, Richard volunteered to run a workshop on 20th December at Las Claras start time 10.30. Those wishing to attend this workshop should, if possible, bring their camera.


Meeting closed


Christmas Lunch

Fifteen members and friends enjoyed the first Christmas lunch together for sometime this was because we were unable to meet due to the pandemic. We were treated to an excellent lunch in the restaurant at Las Claras and it was nice to see and chat with members some of which we had not seen for a while. There was universal praise for being able to eat and chat together again and everybody was looking forward to be able again meet for the monthly meetings again at Las Claras
