Further to Friday's email...
I can believe the week is going so fast.
I absolutely must now by tomorrow lunch time who's coming so that I can
book a place, hopefully Little India.
Please email me off list if you're attending or place your name on the
Please pass this around other lists...
nznog, wand, wellyLug, Auckland, Wellington TNC.
Peter has the following dates available this month: 16,22,28,29 & 30. The
last 3 subject to change at short notice.
Do these correlate with any dates you have available? If so, please let us
know on list which days. (ASAP!)
Otherwise, May 1st or May 8th are the next Thursdays on which we can meet.
Unfortunately we had too many last minute cancellations to ensure that we
met quorum for our committee meeting.
We need to have one this month! Can people please advise on list what dates
they can attend. We need attendance commitment from committee members
otherwise we end up wasting each other's time. Apologies to Ivan who didn't
get my email and was the only person who turned up to the last scheduled
I have also received an email from Paul Matthews (CEO) who informed me that
we need to appoint a Branch Secretary (it's an "officer" of the branch, and
hence a constitutional requirement).
Can someone willing to perform this role please volunteer - that last thing
we want to do is draw straws for the position!
This might be of interest to some who are studying??

well, what's a better time to get together and have a curry ?
So far, I have got 4 people keen for an early curry, personally 6:30pm
onwards would suit me.
Because of the nature of the upcoming event, the Hamilton 400 V8
Supercars, I really need to get firm numbers so that I can book ahead
At this stage, I'm looking at Little India in Alexandra St which is in
