GNW meeting Friday night.

Two areas of issue

  1. FAT money raised and how that is going to be handled. FAT money is raised for the improvement of GNW and eventually to be able to float GNW.
  2. Asa is stewarding event next year � Running of event discussion and ideas. GNW is regional event. The two Baronies take turns in signing off, however the region runs the event. Asa would like to see the stewarding team of key roles is made up of both Baronies and that we are running the event together. Tomas will be supporting Asa, with a view of potentially running the following year with exceptions of superior bids. Gabriel stated that anyone who is intensely involved with the previous running of GNW will have a higher chance of having the successful bid when it is St Florian de la Riviere�s turn to run the event in 2010.

Discussions with BCC

After some nine phone calls over a period of weeks to the BCC, Gabriel is in discussion regarding hiring the spotlights on the field next to the green bridge on Monday night. BCC is supportive of the idea. There are a few hurdles. The field is controlled by the Parks Section, the Hall next to the field is controlled by Community Leasing Section. Power for the lights comes through the Community Leasing hall for the lights. Community Leasing are in the process of working out the successful lease application for the hall. However the application does not include the use of the field at this stage. This means that in the future we will have to liaise with whatever organisation is successful with their bid for the hall to access the power. Will have to arrange key or something with BCC. We will have no lease and could be asked to move on at any stage �We will be hiring for 3 hours at a cost of only $22 for the evening.. We will not be able to do archery. Should hear from the BCC next week. Gabriel consistently nudging BCC and yielding results. Complicated results which should work in our favour. Potentially starting for the new year. Gabriel will continue advising as it happens. This has been a six week process leading to this point and at least that we�ve now got a contact.

Baronial Meetings over Christmas Break

  • Next meeting 30/11/2008 at Asa�s. Address will be published closer to the date
  • No plans to have meeting in January/Feb. However if an urgent issue raised, Gabriel will call a meeting. Gabriel would like to have Festival encampment paperwork, Knights of the North and Turkish Event paperwork submitted by then to ensure appropriate advertising in PEGASUS.
