Thanked everyone for their response on nomination for Captain and Nomad of the Year, very important as it gives a broad spectrum of opinion.

Net fees profit of 20.00, subs not paid D. May and G. Sercombe. Rare event to take 11 in match fees per match. People sneaking off, but we were short on occasions. Good response on teas. A 1 donation (found by M Heslington groveling on the floor at the Queens).

Pitch hire was 240.00, a demand of 180 has been received from Holland SSC and 3 from $ Crosses totals 270. Expenses were claimed by M Heslington.

There was a slight increase in MCCC insurance. A donation was made to Linda & Mack. Loss on the year of 36.00, expense will be around 100. We have reserves of 300 which have diminished by 1/3 over 2 years. JH not claim expenses. MP asked if 300 reserve included 50-club reconciliation, PW answered NO! PW and PF to do it and report at next meeting. CR stated that it is difficult to boost income when expenditure is increasing. PM stated that the financial position is better due to PG parking correctly.

Pre Xmas social well attended, beer & blues not so well due to Fog & Ice. Test match was excellent. Dinner fairly good. (Possibly Trooper next year). Quiz still a possibility.

11. Captain’s Report.

Problem with team. Good start, bad last 2/3rds. Good personal, but not good team performances. I.e. 20 for 4 did not get to 120 for 5, not enough application.
