11 February Meeting Report (Reporter - Valerie)

  • Guests were Cam, Gary and Hillary Beath, and Vanessa. Apology from Noel.

  • Discussion re Significant Achievement Award from District - could we apply? (Does Literacy Day not count?).

  • Combined meeting - Kerikeri RSA - 23 February - probably $20 - celebrating 10 years of Rotary.

  • Friendship exchange - all in hand, 10am pick up at Kawiti Caves on Wednesday. BBQ at Wildspur on Friday, drop off at Matakohe on Saturday for 10am.

  • 25 February - Committees and Directors.

  • Bruce and Elizabeth want to deliver dictionaries to Ohaeawai School when we have them!

  • Don - coming and going but mostly away from soon till late March.

  • Please could we all check each week that one of us is taking notes for the Bulletin.

  • RYDA - Decided that Ray would let them know we are no longer involved.

  • Cam - the Kauri plantation needs repairs of the stakes and ties. Some of the other trees have died. Early winter planting of remaining 30. Glenis and Cam will stake and tie.

  • Bruce G - project idea - 2 crates of Barry Crump memorabilia at Heritage Kaikohe, want to build a replica deer stalkers hut and a special building to house and display it, $60,000 estimate.

  • Stan can build a replica deer stalkers hut cheaply and quickly, but will be mostly busy with personal concerns till March.

  • Helen gave an entertaining 5 minute talk on cricket, particularly the explanation for an American of the ins and outs of the game of test cricket.

    • 1622 the first game was played on the path of a graveyard of a village church.

    • Helen and John have viewed the actual underarm ball in WA.

    • Original bats were like hockey sticks.

    • 1787 - MCC & Lords established.

    • International played since 1844 - first was USA vs Canada.

    • 1868 - an Aboriginal team toured England and played at the Oval.

  • A chopping board was raffled by Bruce K, won by Ray and no doubt given to Vivienne.

  • Donna was the Sergeant and had Trivia questions for all - none too easy either.

  • Finale was a choice of Noel's quiz or 500. We opted for the quiz and were rewarded with chocolate.

  • Can't remember the exact wording of John V's meeting closure but it was good - in business, most mistakes have a vested interest behind them.
