3, The Treasurers report:
I am pleased to report the club is in good financial position. The income to support our activities comes almost completely from the Annual Subscriptions being $6855 for the year plus the $2 meeting charge amounting to $3668 for the financial year.
Our expenses are more varied but are largely Rent, Affiliation fees, Judge and Speaker fees as well as equipment purchases.
This last financial year has seen purchases of new Hi Res Projector, Laptop Computer an a large projection screen.
These items accounted for over $6000 of our expenditure.
Our change to the National Australia Bank went smoothly and we are now receiving interest on the balance of our account.
We have recently upgraded our accounting software to take advantage of some of MYOB’s new features.
I would like to thank Peter Pretty for his help in setting up the MYOB software and his help during the year with our accounting queries.

One has to acknowledge the time and effort put into these media by Gary Parnell maintaining the website and Peter Carless who edits the newsletter. Our website has recently undergone a welcome facelift for which we thank Bob Hayter, who also does a great job as our Treasurer.
We are very fortunate in having Peter Kewley as our Secretary. He does a very efficient job in that role and, at least as importantly, keeping an administrative eye on all those other matters involving club activities. Without his steerage, I’m sure a lot of matters would not be taken care of in the way they should.
We all know that once our competition entries are put in the box they will magically reappear on the judging night accurately assessed with scores recorded for future reference; and all untouched by human hands. In reality, thank you to Rose for doing the clerical and photographic work needed to...
