    At the AGM we need to discuss this year's rally and elect a committee to organise next year.  As you all are aware Peter Smith (G2DPL), our Treasurer for many years, sadly went SK this year so we also need a new Treasurer.  Chris has been the acting Treasurer and couldn't help noticing that internet banking is at odds with the constitution which requires "two signatures"!  It is therefore proposed that we amend the constitution at the AGM to remove this requirement.
