Next on the agenda are the Club AGM at Elinor’s house in South Wales, and Welsh Working a fortnight later. One point that is being raised at the AGM is the question of the club’s perpetual trophies. Most of them are getting on a bit, 20 years or so, and I’m afraid that modern cups don’t seem to be built to last like the old solid silver ones. This inevitably means that there is considerable deterioration, which is expensive to put right. What do other clubs do in these circumstances? Is it fair to give the burden to the original donors, who may be no longer around or involved? Should the club use scarce resources to make major repairs or even buy replacements, when the money could be used more positively? Should we go to the continental system of giving outright, less expensive cups at each show? Should we give better rosettes to winners, and perpetuate their achievements on the club’s website? A real opportunity for animated debate….I’ll let you know how it went after the meeting.
