  1. Meeting break at 8.32pm for Eddy Arnold and Mary Arnold - a discussion document given to all members.  Malcolm Bennett left the meeting.  He made known his feelings for Arnold and Noel and said he did not trust either of them.  Eddy said “he was at a meeting where subs were discussed.  Eddy felt it was unfair to charge a sub to the III when no-one else paid subs.  Then he gave an undertaking that “as a result of the III grade” the club would not be in a worse off situation.  At the AGM there was accusations that Eddy was guilty of fraud, the III had cost the club lots of money and their behaviour was not up to scratch - from Malcom.  Eddy chose not to be on the committee.  As a result - after a balance sheet was given, Eddy worked out the costs the best he could at the time.  He didn’t have access to the break-down.  He didn’t hear anything about it, after he presented this to some members of the committee.  He said to Ashley and Anne, the accusations were unfounded.  It was then that he got the letter from the club - Eddy said only Dylan knew of it.  Dylan replied that the committee had heard the letter.  Eddy highlighted - “undertaking to not let the club be in any worse situation financially…” - As if the III team never existed…Eddy gave a new breakdown of costs, based on the letter from the club - written by Dylan.  Discussion was had by Eddy, Dylan and others as to the figures given by Eddy to the club, the new workings of the team.  According to Eddy, the income was $10072-01.  The expenses were $8463-60.  Giving a profit of $1608.41 to the club.  Dylan indicated that there are some disagreements about procedures for use of bar profits, the dates of grants to the club and the issue of subs.  Eddy feels that vicious rumours are unfounded.  Eddy was thanked for his time, bid farewell with the knowledge that Dylan would write a letter to him regarding the Committee’s decision for further action or otherwise.  Meeting went back into committee at 9.08pm.
