Minutes and matters arising

Minutes from 2013-09-11 and 2013-10-26 were accepted.

PNJ asked for clarification of a minor discrepancy in the treasurer's statement in the 2013-10-26 Minutes.
Action: DR will send a clarification to PNJ.

DR reported that we can now use the Britannia in Liskeard for cash banking.

Plans for 2014


The photographic competition is a good way of keeping people engaged and we will try to run it continuously and display favourite images monthly.

We may announce prizes at the Meadow Fayre in June (Currently 2014-06-07) and/or at the end of the Geological event (see below).

Publicise through the school from 6th January. Also St Cleer school.

We will use similar entry conditions to last time.

Quiz night

RR volunteered to prepare questions for a Quiz Night similar to the event we ran on 2012-03-03. We decided to hold this on Saturday, 2014-02-08.
Action: RR to prepare questions for Quiz Night.

Owl event

We'd like to do another Owl event and we should schedule it for a time when the Owls aren't brooding.
Action: DR to find out appropriate dates.

Treasure hunt

JC volunteered to organise a local walking treasure hunt. This might take the form of a walk to Minions and back which could be done at a relaxed pace. This would be on a Saturday before the Summer Holidays with a Barbecue afterwards. The proposed date is 2014-05-31.
Action: JC to plan the event.


For later in the year we might organise a geological walk in conjunction with CAGG. We could do another barbecue at the end of that, perhaps at the end of August.
Action: PNJ to discuss the idea with Calum Beeson.
