The 1979 AGM broke with tradition by retaining the Chairman for two years on the recommendation of the committee that two years consecutive service by Chairmen and Secretaries (if they can be persuaded to do it!) would improve the stability of the club's management. If all goes well one of the two will retire each year while the other will stand for re-election. Where possible the Chairman will continue to come alternately from the Wick and Thurso areas.
This year the pattern has continued to develop towards good support for summer outings and rather uneven support for winter lectures. This provides the incoming committee with the challenge of providing more appetising winter fare in spite of the competition from the other winter activities which make the evenings so eventful in Wick and Thurso. There were some members who found the 1979 summer outings rather strenuous and the committee have borne this in mind when setting up this summer's programme - let us hope that it caters for a wider range of preferences.
