VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE
The Association of Lightweight Campers are holding their
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
At 2.00 pm on Saturday 19th May 2018
At Aston & Cote Village Hall, Cote Road, Aston, OX18 2DU
Map Ref. 164/342030
The rules of the Club require a MINIMUM of 15 voting members to
attend before the meeting can proceed. Less than 15, then an
E.G.M. has to be arranged with the possibility the Section will
close. We currently have over 900 voting members but at the
2016, and 2017 AGM we only just reached the required 15.
Please make every effort to attend this year and support your
Council. The official meeting usually lasts less than an hour, but
there is plenty of time afterwards to meet the Council members
Notices of motions and nominations for Council must be sent to
Hon Sec, Mary Searle, 20 Combe Rise, High Wycombe, HP12 4JE
Camping is available from Friday 18th May behind the
Village Hall, and we have use of the hall for the weekend.
We camped there for our AGM in 2016 and were made very welcome.
Our editor has the unenviable task of trying to put together the club magazine, for you all to enjoy.
The section decided to reduce the amount of issues per year to try and help the issue but this month she has not had much sent in for inclusion so far.
Do you have any stories about the club or writeups from any meets you have been too?
Any contributions can be emailed to Hazel-Ann on the email editor @ lightweightcampers .org .uk (remove spaces)
No submission of material may mean the Bulletin has to cease to be made, which would be a sad thing.
Here is the list of the camping meets for this year
Full details, pitch fees etc to follow.
We currently do not have a standardised logo that we can use on anything electronically. the one used here and on other websites is just a photo I took of the tablecloth we use at the AGM. We need one that we can use on all websites, all correspondence and any new merchandise we decide to get in the future.
Looking at previous versions of the old metal badges we have, there is a difference in the colours on all of them. Kim has copied the logo and created 2 versions of it (file on members download page). We need your input before we can start using it.
Have a look at the file and let me know which you prefer, the 1st or 2nd pictures. You can comment here, via the contacts page or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
