CARMARTHENSHIRE WORKING GUNDOG SOCIETY ANNUAL REVIEW.
We come towards our A.G.M. for the 2016/17 season and our presentation of schedules and notices for the 2017/18 season – doesn’t time fly!
The Society has had a very successful year; holding spaniel and retriever Field Trials for both open and novice
covering the three breeds, namely Cockers, E.S.S and Retrievers. Feedback has been very positive regarding the
quality of our trials and this is pleasing to hear for the hard
working few associated with the Society.
We have a full programme again this coming season and it’s nice to see our membership still increasing and our foundation
regarding our financial management showing a very healthy position.
Things didn’t start well for the Society this year with the resignation of our Chairman shortly after our A.G.M. but thanks to
the very small crew that rallied round, we did deliver the events programmed.
The Society are indebted to a number of people that helped at all the events this year. Our sponsors need a
particular thank you, along with hosts and judges. A very big thank you to the guns that dug deep into their pockets this year to help
subsidise the trials and without their generosity we all would find it difficult to deliver the events programmed.
Moving forward again, the Society are appealing for members to step up and give their time and support to make sure the Society remains on track.
It is getting increasingly difficult to continue to run the Society with the very limited resources that we have re both committee members and officers.
Hopefully this situation can be resolved this year by you, the rank and file membership.
We look forward to a well – supported AGM.
Alan Rees (General Secretary).
The subscriptions from £8 to £10, this is still causing us a problem with a large amount of members still not paying the
correct amount. ON THIS NOTE IF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION NOTIFICATION ENCLOSED, SHOWS YOU HAVE NOT PAID THE
CORRECT AMOUNT PLEASE CORRECT THE AMOUNT BY THE END OF SEPTEMBER 2017, OTHERWISE WE WILL REMOVE
YOUR NAME FROM THE LIST OF MEMBERS AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY FURTHER TRIAL & TESTS SCHEDULES OR NOTICES.
