Chair's Report To The SCoM AGM October 2015
I would like to thank the committee for their tireless efforts as always throughout the year.
I have said before that you don’t have to be on the committee to help and I would like to thank all the members who organise activities for us from walking to parties, golfing, cycling, and also volunteers who assist with administration of holidays and the buddy system.
I would also like to thank our members who are qualified ski instructors who give up their time to instruct other members at the Chill Factore. We have considerable numbers that attend the Wednesday evening and Thursday morning monthly sessions because the Instruction is such a success. Of course the drinks afterwards and social aspect help a lot as well.
SCoM now has a total membership of 283 which continues to grow with regular new recruits mainly from the Chill Factore events. New members this season totalled 30. Sadly some members have passed away this year and shall be missed.
Moving into next year we hope to run a similar level of events again and have increased our holiday options to 4 for next Season.
The exciting news is that we have 3 new committee members for the upcoming year. This will enable us to represent an even wider selection of our members.
As you know I am retiring this year from the post of Chair and from the committee. I have however pledged to continue helping from the sidelines. Barry Lewis is also retiring from committee this year after several years of helping us. I know you will all join me in thanking him for his help which I know will continue off committee.
I pass over the Chair position to Rick Mayers who I believe will give the committee a fresh new outlook.
As always if you want to help or have any ideas, pass them onto members of the committee.
