About Club Meetings
Meetings start at 8.00 pm, before hand you may like to join some of the members for a meal at the Albion Hotel from 6:30pm. The meetings themselves are reasonably informal, however a lot of formal business needs to be dealt with. The meetings usually begin with reports from the various office bearers, for example the Competition Secretary may tell us about upcoming Motorsport, or the Social Secretary may tell us about the next social activity.
Following the reports we move on to what is known as general business. During this time everyone has an opportunity to raise any subject they feel is appropriate. The sort of things that come up are peoples interesting experiences relating to Minis. For example you may have discovered that a V8 Valiant bypass hose is an almost perfect match for a Cooper S top radiator hose (it is!) so you can tell everyone about it. Or someone may have gone to the truck racing at Mallala and have something to say about it. General business is pretty much an open forum.
After general business we have a Buy Sell and Swap session where people can tell everyone what they’ve got or what they want.
On occasions we may show a Mini related video or have a guest speaker on a Mini/club related topic.
Meetings don’t appeal to everyone; some people attend all of them, and others never attend any of them. I think a lot of people enjoy chatting before and after the meeting more than the official meeting itself, of course Pub Night is also a great opportunity to chat, too.
Please don’t judge the Club on a single meeting, it is much more than that. When you do attend, make an effort to introduce yourself around, get to know people and club meetings will develop into a rewarding experience.
