The deliberate mistake

March, not 13th February. The minutes as corrected were accepted on a
motion from Terry Bluett and Rod Sell.
Darren Jones suggested
we should move the meetings to the North Manly Bowling Club so we are
prepared when the lease expires in May 2019. It was suggested that the
more important venue was for the Northside Stamp Fair each month.
Darren would investigate possible venues for Northside which would
charge less than $100 per month.
