Reps Report

  • 600 donated to West Midlands Region in the last 12 months. Good attendance by BCMAG at regional meetings/events.

Officers Reports:

  • Treasurers report:
    Unfortunately, the account records were lost when the treasurer's computer was repaired. These are being reconstructed from bank statements.
    We are currently solvent, by a whole tenner!
  • Website manager report:
    SP acknowledged that the website has been neglected for the last 6 months. Once SP stands down from regional secretary post in March, more time will be devoted to it.
    As always, material for the website is required - any photo's or articles will be appreciated.
  • Liaison Officer:
    DM acknowledged the help with this year's blagging from Phil Poyner.
    DM also asked for fliers posters and memberships forms to distribute to dealers.

Ideas for patch/logo design:

  • Suggestions made - examples to be brought to a later meeting.

BCMAG Rally:

  • We will be staging another summer rally around the end of May. Date and venue to be decided very soon.

MAG-UK AGC:

  • Sat 3rd April at the Gala Theatre, Durham. Support would be appreciated. Anyone requiring more information please get in touch.

West Midlands Regional Meetings:

  • BCMAG support has been excellent at these - well done and please keep it up.

West Midlands Regional AGM:

  • 6th March at the Park Inn, from 1pm

Fred Hill Day:

Heart Of England Rally:

  • 2/7/2004 at Stoke Prior
  • Volunteers always needed.
  • Entertainment already booked:
    • Beholder - Friday
    • Strangers - Saturday
    • Disco both nights.
  • Publicity needs to improve this year - more volunteers required to distribute fliers.
  • Brum Demo:
    Ideas needed for destination/purpose

AOB

  • Trails riders campaign was discussed at length.
    Although this doesn't directly affect most of us, it should be viewed as the "thin end of the wedge" - any ill-thought-out bike legislation is a direct threat to us all.
    Action Pack included with these minutes - please find time to write a letter.
