GRAMP AGM & Novelty Event

Every year we have our AGM on a Saturday night, including a pot-luck supper social, followed by a Novelty Event on the Sunday. A wee heads up for you all that it’s time to put 7th and 8th December in your diaries for this year. Details of venues and timing to follow.

Everyone is welcome to come along to the AGM especially Juniors and new faces as we’re always on the lookout for feedback and new ideas to help us shake up the way we do things.

Some ideas* to mull over and get you thinking…
Should we make Planner and Organiser roles a shared job, and committee roles come to that? Adopt a more modern, collaborative approach rather than relying heavily on certain individuals being able to commit a lot of time and energy?
Is our current set of event series interspersed with occasional Regionals too ambitious now our membership has reduced?
And are we offering the right kind of events for what you want these days?
What should we be doing to cash in on social media contacts and advertising? Newcomers – how did you hear about orienteering?
What made you decide to try it so we can target those aspects?
Ideas to rejuvenate our club social scene and would you prefer weekday or weekend?

(*all Rachel’s and she accepts full responsibility for any agitation or offence caused, although not intended obviously)

The Post-AGM Novelty Event (ideas for a snappier title than that?) is in the hands of David Kirk this year so expect the unexpected!
