A beautiful crisp sunny Hayling afternoon, and a great turn-out for the AGM. Given the plan to adopt a revised constitution, this was a good thing... The usual agenda items went quickly, but a lively debate on topics like mandatory classes of email, whether the constitution should retain the possibility of charging a subscription and the social and technical complexities of maintaining a list of members ensured that everyone was ready for the bar. A almost completely revised Committee was appointed, only Andrew retaining his Webmaster position, with Gen as Chair, Beth Events and Nuala Treasurer. Stephen also offered assistance with Publicity.

Matters legal and official dealt with, the evening proper started. The early showing of Gen, Juan and the Hierro bobsleigh team set the tone, or at least would have done without the Cabo Verde 2007 DVD playing to ensure windsurfing stayed on the agenda. Great to see so many people turning up, 30+ including the latest members Graham and B, not to speak of Chris Martin's astonishingly hardcore moustache!

The all-important awards were dished out as follows:

Good Skegg - Andrew C, for his huge work on the website
Fish Out of Water - Despite pressure to award this to any number of pregnant ladies, it went to Adam for his spectacular jumps on the Rhossi trip

All-in-all, a good evening, livened by Beth's dress, the mega-buggy, Rick dandling a Hierro-ette, the (almost impossible!) match-the-baby-and couple quiz and the opportunity to meet everyone after what seems like a long time!

So, to the beach!!
