- In spite of a gloriously sunny day a record number of members
attended the AGM and Convention on Saturday.
Clearly the lure of the garden proved insufficient!
Trent Valley Group, who deservedly received the Association Award for
their efforts over the last few years, had organised an excellent mix
of traders and layouts.
The catering was just perfect - to arrive at about 9 o'clock to the
smell of tea and bacon sandwiches, and to enjoy same, was bliss.
THe AGM itself was relatively swift and there were no contentious
issues. Howard and Christine Clarke were given a Peter Barnfield
print as a gesture of thanks for their work collating and stuffing
Association mailings over recent years - the Comrade Chairman
estimated something in the order of 30,000 envelopes, I think, it
might have been more!!
There were a record number of high quality entries in most classes of
the competitions, which was very satisfying. Details of these, and
pictures, should appear in Narrow Lines over the next issues.
The day is fairly informal, apart from the AGM and there are always
little rgoups of people peering at alyouts together or gathered
chatting about this and that, none of the hustle and bustle of many
Don't miss it next year - it really is worth the effort to get along.
- Hi Frank,
Ah yes, knew I'd miss something off by rushing the plan. Didn't look right when I did it but not twigged until you said! The layout is Tony Kell's excellent Raccoon Canyon Mining.
My address is in Narrow News.... But should you not be able to find one its:
7 Church Street, Tutbury, Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire. DE13 9JE.
I'm around next week, but then away the week after in Wales so will go through the cd as soon as it arrives.
