Matters arising from Minutes of meeting 18th May 2011

1. Show Layout

A layout for the field is to be agreed and this must accommodate an additional dog show ring for the agility course. The possibility of altering the location of the tea tent was discussed. Dave to liaise with Phil and Michaela as to the most appropriate layout for the show field.

2. Red Cross

Sheila has booked the Red Cross and is now awaiting receipt of the form that must be completed and returned.

3. PA System

4. Children’s Sports

5. Dog Show

Janet requested that whoever would be responsible for erecting the dog show rings, gazebo, tables and chairs be available to meet the Axe Valley Vet nurses on the Thursday evening before the show to confirm arrangements.

6. Lunches

Janet confirmed that the meat had been organised with Mike Carthy (Ham and Brisket of Beef). Janet will be cooking the meat and this will be served alongside salads. Tickets will be £7.50 and Janet is confident that £2.50 profit will be made from each lunch.

Janet has organised washer-uppers and will be paying them for their assistance.

Janet requested that Ted informs her as to how many Vice Presidents book a lunch when they RSVP to their invitations.

7. Comments Box

Janet suggested that a comments board was erected in the show marquee. It was felt that an anonymous comments box would be more suitable, hoping this would be used for positive suggestions for future shows and constructive comments.

8. Toilets

Dave Tucker to ask Ray Bennett to sort toilets.

9. Grand Draw

Sharon has organised this years Grand Draw. There have been many positive comments made regarding the success of last years balloon race with many asking if it will be running again this year. Sharon advised that she would be tied up with the Grand Draw but that if anyone else would like to organise and run the balloon race she had contact details available.

10. Bar

Dave to liaise with Ray Bennett as to the arrangements for the bar and purchasing drink etc. Dave also asked Michaela to contact Cheddar Ales to see if a deal could be reached on 2-3 barrels of beer. One or two members suggested that John Halliwell might be interested in running the bar.

11. Wrist Bands

These are yet to be located but it is thought that many were left over from 2010
