Fencing North Meeting – October 4th 2018
Meeting Opened: 7:05pm.
Present: Bryce Gracie, Jess Gracie, Katie Logan, Amanda Hopkins.
Apologies: Eric Buisman, Mary Black, Sunnie Sun, Nour Malak.
Previous Minutes: Jess moved that the previous minutes be accepted. Bryce seconded. Motion passed.
Matters Arising from the Previous Minutes: No matters arising.
Health and Safety: Jess reported that there were two incidents at National Under 20s: one concussion, and one minor injury requiring an ice pack. Reports were filed and transferred to the FeNZ Secretary. The use of cones and ropes to separate spectators from the pistes and separate rooms for bags worked well to prevent crowding.
Treasurer’s Report: Amanda presented the Treasurer’s Report. The society made a small loss on National Under 20s, although there are still some outstanding entry fees. The training camp run by Fencing North made a small profit. Bryce seconded that the report be accepted. Motion carried.
Amanda moved that the profit from the training camp be used to partially reimburse a private sponsor who underwrote the expenses. Bryce seconded. Motion carried.
Payments: Hall hire payments are due for the Auckland Grammar and Massey High School gyms.
Competitions: The North Open, Fencing North’s final competition for the year, will be held on the 6th of October. The draft calendar for next year will be circulated among the committee for feedback soon.
FeNZ News: There was no news to report from FeNZ, as there has not been a FeNZ meeting since the previous Fencing North meeting.
Other Business: The committee discussed the upcoming AGM, to be held on the 29th of November. There was consideration of potential constitutional changes. It was agreed that major constitutional changes should wait until the Incorporated Societies Act is updated in 2019.
Meeting Closed: 7:37pm.
