Presidents Report  September 21st, 2021
President’s ramblings. 

Yahoo!! We are back in business – well almost!
As of next week – the 28th September – we will be able to reconvene for our meetings at Edgewater, thanks to the (slight) slackening of the rules around Level 2, so that up to 100 people can meet at the same time.
However, we need to follow due process to ensure our continued presence at Edgewater, and get our meetings underway in a seamless manner. So -

All members when entering the premises will need to wear a mask, they are able to remove this once seated.

All members are to sign in either manually or scanning the QR code.

Dinner service may be seated and plated up instead of buffet style.

We may need to put a private bar in the pavilion also so there is no queue in the main bar area.

In order for the reduced staff numbers to cope with our meeting, confirmed numbers and dietary requirements need to be in prior to Tuesday - Friday would be perfect.

Please be mindful of these requests – they are there so that we can continue with our meetings – and I am sure that, like me, you have been missing the connections and camaraderie that comes with belonging to Rotary.

Talking of which, George Scott has invited Graeme Gale from the Otago Rescue Helicopter Trust to come and receive the (virtual!) cheque from the Winter Crop Competition, as the in’s are in, and the out’s are out, leaving a very sizeable amount to distribute. Keep an eye out for the date – and if numbers allow, we should make this a partners night as well to celebrate the conclusion of a fantastic effort.
Other things on the horizon that need your attention:
The annual trip to Tititea is on the 9th and 10th of October – always good fun and
we get a lot done too, which is very satisfying. John Milburn has put the list out
calling for volunteers so get your name down – NOW!!
The Annual Duck Race is at Labour weekend – Saturday 23rd October to be precise. There will be tickets and Corporate ducks to sell, and all help will be appreciated. Have another look at the video – it is an absolute quacker!! (sorry, I couldn’t resist that one!)

On the 26th October we are again helping with the Keep NZ Beautiful road clean
up from 3-5pm – a great way to improve the look of our town for very little effort, and a bit of socializing afterwards to unwind. Again, John has put out the volunteers sign-up list, so do it while you remember!
There are other fundraising events coming up too – a book sale at New Year; the Gibbston Valley Concert – moved to 26th March because of you-know-what; Warbirds, which is at Easter next year; The Winter Crop Competition. Plenty to get our teeth into!
Right, enough from me – please get apologies in for next week by Friday, but I
look forward to seeing as many as possible to get things underway again and
relieve some of the boredom of the last few weeks.
Pres. Rich.
