Start delayed- no progress to date, but to be carried forward to next meeting.
Demand suddenly increased; bookings for next 3 games. Deadline for entries is Tamworth game, to allow dates for semi finals
Now completed – raised about £112. Thanks to Gareth Thomas for organising this. Agreed to rest this initiative for next season as it has been going for a number of years and is proving more difficult to sell.
New Year Raffle
Sales seem to be poor at present. About £250 banked to date. Agreed to renew focus over the next week or so, draw to be Feb 5th. Agreed to review date/timing for 2012, with possibility of the draw being at end February

Launch delayed, which affected sales. Calendar sponsor obtained and figure in excess of £250 raised. Detailed statement at next meeting
No progress this month. Brian Flynn to contact Geoff Morris about assistance on this project
Currently slightly down financially. Not currently a major worry. May require a fundraising event to subsidise.
Agreed that this needs a formal proposal being put forward to cover the setup for a trial game Brian Flynn to prepare and circulate.
Pint glasses with crest printed. Quoted figure £1. 50p however for volumes of 500. Agreed may be worthwhile at some time, but on hold for now.
New posters required at end of February. As soon as available, an appeal for posters will be launched

Focal point for Fundraising
