To all our friends.
ANNUAL REPORT FOR 2016 ...
It has been an enjoyable, encouraging and successful year of song, music and merrymaking.
Thank you to everyone who comes along, both regularly and occasionally, and all the MC-s who make everyone feel welcome and valued.
Thank you to all those kind individuals who ensure that Dogsbody always gets home safely!
- Total = 638 person-attendances over 47 weeks.
- Average attendance = 13.57 bodies.
- Best attendance = 28 persons + one guinea-pig and a stuffed penguin.
- Lowest attendance = 7 lonely people + one stuffed penguin.
Treasurer's Summary Report:
- Having donated a small gratuity to the Friends of Guiding, income and expenditure were rendered equal, whereby the club can celebrate the fact that we achieved our constitutional aim of making no profit whatsoever!
- Nobody got paid for doing what they enjoy.
Notes about the future:
- The hire-fee for the Guide Hall is to be increased for 2017 because of rising energy costs. In order to cover that expense, the club needs to maintain an average attendance of 13.5 subscribers per week. If we need to purchase new table-cloths, you'd better bring along all your friends!
- We are advised that The Guides are planning to refurbish the kitchen during August 2017 and that the hall will be unavailable to us during that month. Dogsbody looks forward to a short sabbatical then, but if anyone else wishes to organise an alternative venue for August, that's fine.
So, what did happen during January?
- 6th January ...
Mave anticipated the arrival of a green man ...
|Will I do?|
There was account of an illegal activity ...
|...and the other one hung as a token.|
May God forgive their crime.
- 13th January ...
There were hypothermic sheep ...
|and so they all perished ...|
We discovered this unsecured conveyance ...
It now occupies a secure location somewhere in Chichester.
Anyone claiming ownership must contact the Police within 28 days.
Otherwise it becomes 'finders-keepers'!
- 20th January ...
Mick took us instrumentally to a Cornish estuary ...
Then, courtesy of Roger, we went home on the [right] side of midnight.
