LAST WEEK’S MEETING
Apologies for the sparseness of these notes but the absence of The Scribe did not immediately register. President Greg opened the meeting and asked for reports.
Brian A gave details of the Melbourne Cup trifecta and the problems with low ticket sales; over 700 tickets were unsold. Fortunately the winning ticket was amongst that number resulting in a profit for the Club of over $2,000. Whether to continue this activity next year will be debated by the Board.
Rick V had proposed to the Mary Cairncross Park Committee that Rotary should undertake a specific "major" project rather than the routine weeding and morning tea working bees. With his PR hat on, he explained how he was getting on with the Range News.
Chris B spoke about membership, the No Brainer Ball and other topics before getting in his plug for the RSL's Woodstock Night.
Angela G reported that Lloyd L was liaising with the Showground Committee about replacing the Rotary wheel on the Obi bridge.
Brian K told of an approach by Glass House for a joint clubs meeting with ourselves and Caboolture on 14 Nov. It was agreed to run an extra sausage sizzle on 13th Nov at the RSL markets. Brian asked his committee to meet at 6:00pm on 9 Nov to discuss the Christmas arrangements.
Bill H stepped into the breach as stand in Sergeant and managed to empty some pockets. Tony Holmes won a used scratchy and would no doubt like it replaced!

NOW FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT
FROM OUR EMPLOYMENT CORRESPONDENT
The Team leader had group of 20 people in front of him for a work detail from the "Work for the Dole" program.
Team Leader:"I want to know who is the laziest person here amongst you lot and if you think you are, raise your hand above your head."
All but one raised their hand above their head. The Team Leader looked at the one who did not raise his hand and asked. "Why did you not raise your hand above your head?"
Wait for it. . . .
"I couldn't be bothered."
Perhaps he had studied management structures and did not like what he saw?
