It was generally agreed that the amalgamation with Kingholm Meadow had worked well as the season had been a good one. In the absence of Purser Dean, the Captain explained that funds stood at a healthy figure after payment of TWO years' League fees (shome mishtake here shurely - Ed.)
There was an engaging discussion about what colour cannonballs to use next season, at the end of which it was agreed to spend £40 on a selection of red and orange balls from ebay. (Action: The Captain)
Although only used by Ali last season, it was agreed to encourage the annual sailing subscription of £20 as this ensures a good advance level of funds.
There was no change in the Officers' Mess as all were re-elected unopposed. Midshipman Fallas retains his lead role on the field of play as Vice Captain to Donald McCuaig, who has responsibility for team selection.

It was also decided after drinks had been taken that Daksh is the best Indian restaurant in Dumfries.
