Prepaid expenditure in relation to the 2013 championships is $12,587 and this is treated as an accrued asset in the 2012 accounts.

I would like to thank the committee for their hard work and support during 2012.  In particular my personal thanks to Deb who has been a great Secretary, Lynda Hancock our competition Secretary ably assisted by Linda Barich, Sue Parker  our function organiser, Tanya Hancock for looking after the trophies, Geoff Coggins for looking after and maintaining the web site, Richard Horlock for the work he does in organising the raffles, food and obtaining sponsors for both the March and September championships and to Jenny Moylan and Mike De Nardi for the great suppers including tonight as well as running the kitchen each year for the March championships.

As mentioned we will be hosting the 2013 Australian National championships and we need your enthusiasm and particular skills to make this one of the more successful championships.  Please volunteer to help in any way you can as there is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done to make these championships a success.
