Any Other Business
Timming Equipment for Autotest events.
Richard suggested we should invest in some electronic timing equipment for our autotests. Following discussion and there being no objections in principle, Richard was asked to liaise with Stephen to determine what we might need and how much it might cost.
After having looked at a recent SD34 club magazine Ian said he had been surprised at the amount of content in it. Russell pointed out that many clubs contribute to it. Peter said the club has always had difficulty getting people to write reports for us. In the past whoever won an event usually wrote a short report but this no longer seems to be the case which makes finding content difficult.
After discussion it was agreed:-
To help with content full autotest results should be provided for inclusion and Kerryl would provide a couple of table top rallies for the winter months.
We should also look at upgrading our magazine software as what we have now is some years old. Richard said he might have something more modern and would send it to Peter to look at.
