Rover 200&400 OC AGM 14th October 2018 - Coventry

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Tue Jul 03, 2018 10:26 pm

We have booked this year's AGM at the Coventry Transport Museum for 14th October. Attendance and voting is for Club Members only but you can join on the day.

It will take place in the Bettmann suite from 13:00

The address is Millennium Place, Hales Street, Coventry, CV1 1JD

We have yet to have parking in Millennium Place for club cars confirmed, so watch this space.

There will be changes to the committee this year as Steve Huckle has advised that he needs to relinquish the role of Treasurer for personal reasons but he will continue to run our website. This means that either we will need a new Treasurer or another committee memeber will need to move roles, so if it you are interested in any committee role please contact a committee member to discuss - private message being the preferred method.

Committee roles are:-

Chairman
Treasurer
Secretary
Events
Membership

Time to give this a bump. Please be aware that the AGM is fast approaching and a good turn out is hoped for, as we have had the past few years.

Thanks, Duncan

We can usually get into Millennium Plaza from 10am onwards but as the weather forecast is rain all day there is likely to be more time spent inside than usual so I wouldn't rush to get there too early :)

Rain, Good!

We will be able to see how well my 420 GSI Execative beeds in the rain after the Polishing efferts off the Restoration show at the NEC in March and the quick or maybe not so quick clean that it got today after being left to gather dust for 6 months the took 12 man hours today.

This is the best (and only?) way to get to Millennium Place by car. Sat Navs may think differently!

The weather is looking poor, it's already raining here, so there are likely to be more members inside the museum and the café that outside today.

See you there :-)

Thank you to everybody who braved the weather and the Coventry road system to make it to today's AGM.

This photo was taken when it had stopped raining heavily!

We had an enjoyable 2 hour review and discussion. As a very brief summary:-

- We have had a successful year having attended many indoor and outdoor events
- The profile of the club is rising, including being recognised for our Charity contribution last year
- We made a small surplus of £362 last year
- Our membership has increased from 196 to 262 in the last year
- Our committee now comprises Jeremy Howson (Membership & magazine editor), Paul Vincent (Events), Paul Fixter (Secretary), Jonathan Living (Treasurer) and John Batchelor (Chairman)
- 2019 will be an exciting year, it being the 35th anniversary for the first generation Rover 200 (SD3) and the 30th for second generation (R8). Watch out for more details on events to mark this year

Good to see you all. A long journey in the rain that took an hour longer than it should have done! Looking forward to the next 12 months. Hope it’s a successful time for the club!

Looks like you all had a good AGM, the weather put me off I have to admit. This is the first one I've missed since I joined!

I don’t blame you. The motorway was awful on the way down. But there were some lovely clouds and oranges skies on the way back :)

I'm just waiting for a query to be answered and they should be out straight after that. I'm hoping some time today. Cheers, Duncan
