2015 AGM
 

The 34th annual general meeting of the West of Scotland Cat Club was held on Sunday 15 February 2015 at 3.00pm in Larkhall Community Centre, 19 Montgomery Street, Larkhall, ML9 2AA.  This included a joint discussion with members of the Scottish Cat Club about our joint show on 17 January (their AGM immediately preceded ours), and led to members agreeing that the next show should also be a joint show.

 


 

 

Our next show - 17 January 2015

The reconvened 33rd annual general meeting of the West of Scotland Cat Club was held on Thursday 8 May 2014 at 19:30, papers are as for the original meeting, which unfortunately was just inquorate. As per the constitution of the club we therefore reconvened the AGM.

2013 AGM
 

The 32nd annual general meeting of the West of Scotland Cat Club was held on Sunday 21 April 2013 at the Business Insurance Bureau, Wit’s End, 7 Queens Crescent, Glasgow, G4 9BW. Twenty-one members were present for a lively, and wide-ranging, meeting.  Membership is still at the magic 200, so the club retains its two GCCF delegates, with Richard Gabb and Ian Thomson being elected to those positions.  Ian and Richard were both re-elected to the positions of Chairman and Secretary respectively, and Elizabeth Stewart as Treasurer. We also welcomed Ruth McMillan and Margaret Mather to the Committee.  We had a good discussion abut the date for the 2013/14 show, so keep an eye out here for any news on that front.  We finished with the usual award of trophies for the pet winners at our last show, followed by the raffle which raised £60 for club funds.  Members then enjoyed a light lunch and cat chat.

2012 AGM

The club had had a good year with membership now over the ‘magic 200’, and a very successful Silver Jubilee show. Feedback from judges, stewards and exhibitors alike had been very positive, with particular mention being made of the fantastic layout for Best in Show judging.  The meeting gave special thanks to our show managers, Ian and Caroline Thomson, on running another highly successful, and enjoyable, show.

 

It was noted that life membership of the club was available at the very reasonable rate of £50 for single members and £70 for joint, with the result that six people signed up for life membership there and then!

 

Ian Thomson was re-elected as Chairman and Elizabeth Stewart as Hon Treasurer.  We are particularly delighted that we now have a fully elected Hon Secretary in Richard Gabb, whose election was greeted with a spontaneous round of applause.   As we have now hit the ‘magic 200’ members the club is eligible to have two GCCF delegates, with Caroline Prout and Heather McRae being elected as delegates, and Richard Gabb as reserve delegate. 

 

We had the formal award of trophies for Best of Variety and HP winners at our Silver Jubilee show  - many thanks to our trophy secretaries Margaret Anderson and Elizabeth Allison for all their work in preparing for, and doing, a lovely presentation ceremony.  This was followed by the traditional raffle, with loads of  great prizes – edible, drinkable, wearable and smellable - with no-one leaving empty-handed.  After that all that was left for attendees to do was to enjoy a good lunch and more chat.

 

We hope to see even more of you next year!
