HEFA AGM - 2018

New postby bdg on Sun Sep 09, 2018 6:09 pm

Mark your calendars! Our AGM is scheduled for Tuesday, October 23, 2018, from 7-9pm, at the Community Room at the Wyse Road Sobeys in Dartmouth. This is the same location as last year and the fairly central venue worked well for the meeting and there was ample parking. Also of important note is that this is our 10th year as a society! Lots to celebrate!!!

We encourage all members to participate in this very important annual review of our club. We are a mini-community and need your views and support at this session. We are looking to have some snacks and a selection of door prizes available at the AGM. Additionally, we have a donation of several EDFs, folding props on a motor, miscellaneous servos, etc. as donated by member Marc R. LOTS of reasons to join us and to participate in the AGM!!!

As per the post from last year:
  • Our By-Laws require us to hold this annual meeting within 90 days after our fiscal year end, which is Sept. 30th of each year.
  • At this meeting the membership will be presented with the year-end financial data as well as any update on flying field lease info that we can obtain from the landlord, Canada Lands.
  • It is also customary at these meetings to discuss the events of the past year, and to look ahead to what the New Year might bring for our members.
  • The membership will be asked to vote on a slate of Directors for the 2019 year. If any member wishes to have their name presented as a Director for the 2019 year, they should contact one of the present Directors prior to the meeting date - there are some vacancies to be filled!!

We will be sending out an email in the upcoming days to our members to supplement this initial posting.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,

HEFA 2018 Directors
President - Brian Gray
Vice President - Bill Foster
Secretary / Treasurer - Chris Hodgkinson
Directors at Large - John Liddard, Andrew Curran, Gary Foster

A reminder that this meeting starts at 7pm.... there is adequate free parking available on-site. The community room is to your right and up the stairs when you enter through the main doors.

If possible, please plan to arrive early so that we can get started on-time.... lots of points on the agenda (and we need time for give-aways, cake, and hobby supplies!!!).

These are the RC items donated by Marc to HEFA - that will be available to members tomorrow evening. We'll just need to be fair to others!!!

EDF parts, motors, ESCs (30A and 40A), servos, epoxy... perhaps enough for those winter hobbies!?!!?!?

The 2018 HEFA "AGM" meeting is in the books now...completed earlier this evening..!

Being the tenth Anniversary of the Club it was only fitting that we have a cake to celebrate the occasion. I was astonished to learn that any picture can now be scanned and presented on top of a cake as "edible rice-paper". As shown below, this was the delicious 1/2 slab of pound cake with equally delicious "butter-cream icing" that the Sobey's bakery department whipped up for us. They did themselves proud. The member's camera phones came out for pictures of this creation before we dug into it.

Oh, and yes, the business end of the meeting went well too..!
