President's Report

Would you believe that Spring is in the Air. It’s September already and the year just flies by. At our previous meeting held at the ETSA Museum site we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the local club when we formally formed a branch of the ATCS Inc. I believe that the members enjoyed the BBQ/Sausage Sizzle before the meeting and during the break.

Our formalities commenced with the AGM and all positions were declared vacant. The existing committee and executives were re-elected unopposed and members filled various other positions available (see listing). A financial report was prepared by Richard Zilm and presented by me to the membership.

We proceeded to present Rob Olding with an award for the best interactive display at the Burra Telephone Show.

Geoff King was awarded an honourary life membership to the South Australian Telephone Collector’s Society Inc. for his contribution over the years to furthering the aims of the association. Thanks so much Geoff for your assistance in many facets of the operation of the club.

The August meeting’s theme was Dials. John Newgrain addressed the meeting and answered queries on the correct cleaning and repair of dials. It was most appreciated by the members.

See you on Saturday.

Editor's Thoughts

Well, I’m dragging my heels again guys - sorry about that. The truth is, I am struggling a bit because of other commitments - especially as this is also publication time for The Exchange. There are a lot of things I would like to be doing on the telephone front but I just don’t have time.

The Exchange is late too; publication is held up waiting for material from one of the clubs. It is ready to go as soon as that is provided. I hope you have all caught up with the meeting venue this month. It was initially meant to be back at the Power Networks building but it was not quite ready and because of the Show, there is no parking available.

See you at the meeting.
