Well, I woke up Saturday morning and peered through my bedroom window at the pouring rain, and I thought to myself “Only the brave or the stupid will venture out to the shooting range today!”
Yet, as the saying goes – The show must go on!
78 eager beavers (no pun intended!) gathered in the club house for the AGM and pre-shoot briefing while enjoying a cup of hot coffee.
Most wore gumboots and raincoats, but all were eager to burn some powder.
The entire EXCO remains as is with the only changes being:
- Pieter Swart as Immediate Past Chairman (IPC) stood down as vice-chair while Stephen Swart (chip of the old block) was voted in as vice-chair.
Minor Constitutional changes were tabled and agreed to by the members. The most significant of these are:
- Elected members to serve for a minimum term of 2 years
- New position on the EXCO of IPC. This is to ensure continuity and retention of knowledge and experience of the outgoing chairman for a minimum period of 12 months.
Apart from current chairman Jaco Zeeman and IPC Pieter Swart, two other past chairmen were present. i.e., Robert Peachy and Stephen Palos.
