Rotary Club of Balclutha

15 November 2018

Thursday 22nd November delivering phone books then takeaways at Joan's (any time after 5:30pm).
No dinner or meeting at T&C.
 
Meeting
 
Meeting began with Cliff giving an ode to Barry's father. We offer our condolences to Barry.
 
The club received a letter of thanks from RYDA for our donation of funds and volunteer support.
 
Lynda reported on the Rotary District 9980 fun day, praising the challenges set by Tania. The car rally ended at the pits at Highland Park with a rest at the cafe and laps of the race track and racing go-karts. It was a great catch up with Rotarians and what they are doing at their clubs, over 100 attended.
 
Christine C is attending Presidents Elect Training Seminar (PETS) on Saturday, she has not said yes to the President-Elect position but the club pays for training whether someone attends or not.
 
With limited volunteers available for the A&P Show on Saturday 24th November, the chocolate wheel was to be run at Hewitt's Tractor Services but Wayne reported there is now no room so the chocolate wheel will be in the pavilion.
 
For Clutha Christmas Parade on Saturday 1st December, volunteers meet on the main street and will be walking in the procession wearing Rotary shirts, with bubbles and ice blocks.
 
PROJECTS
Phone books still in Dunedin, expected to arrive Friday. We are only delivering Yellow Pages, so this is likely to be our last year delivering phone books. White Pages directory are now couriered to households on request. It is important to note the list attached to some maps of the addresses that have opted out of receiving a copy, as if it is reported we are fined $50 for a book delivered in error and we earn 45c per book delivered. The books will be stored at the old Hammer Hardware building when the arrive, Tony can open the doors for volunteers to pick up their allocation.
 
SOCIAL
The last club meeting for the year on Thursday 13th December will be at the Creative Arts Centre on Clyde Street. Dinner will be catered by Allan Roulston and Christine C will need numbers to be confirmed.

Speaker of the Evening
 
 
With the phone books having not yet arrived, the evening after the meeting was free, so Wayne Eyles gave a demonstration on Hydraulink and what makes up the hose systems which are a sizeable part of Hewitt's Tractor Services.
Hydraulink is a New Zealand company and hoses are tested in Auckland through 1 million cycles, after which if the hose has still not deteriorated, pressure is applied until it does break. Given this quality, when hoses need replacing, it is not because they have worn out but because they have been damaged.
Thanks Wayne for sharing some of your knowledge and providing us with a glimpse into your trade!
