Meeting venue 2018 and beyond
Over many, many years, the club has found itself at a variety of locations for meetings, social evenings etc. Of more recent times they have been reasonably consistent which helps in particular with conducting meetings.
Thursday nights were always the norm and has been for as long as one can remember. The Upper Burnie Sports Centre came our way as a suitable venue and served us well including conducting an end of year dinner and the 60th anniversary celebrations.
When a clash was occurring with another sporting club it was discussed and decided to make a wholesale change to a Wednesday night trying to retain the use of the facility but avoiding the clash with others.
Due to some incorrect information we again found ourselves in a similar position with other groups using the same venue on the same night.
The suggestion and offer of the use of the meeting room at the Burnie Club was put on the table. After a follow up and confirmation it was agreed that a venue change was a better option and we were on the move to the new facility.
After conducting a couple of meetings there including the AGM it became apparent that Wednesday nights were the quietest night of their week and a Thursday was a preferred option.
Again discussion took place after consultation with the venue and the decision was again made to revert back to our traditional Thursday night.
The committee is very well aware that the change of venues and indeed the change of nights always has an effect on something or somebody. Now having the venue and the Thursday night back we hope that it is plain sailing into the future.
