What a great season 2016/17 was! At the AGM on Sunday, 23 July 2017 President Frank Traugott thanked all members for their contribution and reported on a very successful year including:
• Increase of member numbers by 10%;
• Awarded over $400k in grants over the last 6 months;
• Recognised at the Sydney Northern Beaches branch awards as the 3rd best Club on the Northern Beaches (although we really know the truth!).
Tony Falzarano presented the year end accounts, and reported on a very good financial result. In fact, Trevor Lane, our honorary auditor said this was the 2nd best year he has seen in the 20 years of auditing our accounts. All in all, an outstanding result!
Distinguished service awards were presented to David O’Brien, Peter Landsey and Alex Salier. Outstanding service awards were given to Tony Falzarano, Rebecca Chapman and James Purvis.
Several long service awards were given including to –
75 years Neil Purcell
60 years Will Slatyer, Ron Morton, Paul Day
50 years Nicholas Roelvink, Arthur McCarroll
40 years Tim Fry, Clem O’Grady
30 years Paul Hull

Congratulations as well to our new Board of Directors. Many of the same people are returning to their positions, but we have added Dan Hillier as Club Captain and Brian Mariotti as Junior Activities Director. A big thanks to Rebecca Chapman who has retired as Club Captain for her great contribution to the Board and Club.
