-
you have contributed enoughpieces over the summer to silence me
...
almost!I only need to say one thingKEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!Please don't rest on your laurels
-
let mehave any articles, letters, reviews or pictureswhenever you find the time to write. Don'twait until the next edition is due
-
 just send'em in!
I'll
keep them on file and they WILLappear, if not in the next Journal then theone after. My only gripe (yes there has to beone) is that some of the summer visits havegone unreported

could nobody on the triphave penned a few words?

Now that the Conference is over, (seeseparate report) life is taking a much moretranquil route in the Tapping household. Inaddition my postman wonders where all theletters and replies for events have gone?
In
fact they have gone mainly to MikeHayzelden who has taken over the role of Summer Programme Coordinator and justhappens to have the same postman!Once again this year the response to theprogramme has been fantastic with mostevents being very heavily subscribed. Whilstthis indicates the quality of programme andinterest of our members there is one memberwho really feels the effect. Spare a thoughtfor and give many thanks to our TreasurerDavid
Shaman.
This year he has handledcheques for the Conference,
144
delegatesattended, and all the cheques for the SummerProgramme. At the last count these were inexcess of 450 individual cheques, giving agrand total of incoming cheques to around600 for this year, not forgetting the normalmembership renewals. These all have to beentered individually on
David's
paying inslips.We have in recent years pushed forindividual cheques for each event but in thelight of this colossal total we will have toreview this approach. We will look firstly athow many trips could be paid on the day,directly to the venue and then maybereconsider a single cheque applicationalthough this will mean all trips being paidfor when the cheques is cashed, somethingwe can regulate by having multiple cheques.However, the real point to make is that weowe David a huge debt of gratitude for thepainstaking and meticulous way hecontinues to administer our accounts.
