ESNG meeting – 01/05/2014

After the post-exhibition lethargy, back to a normal running night.  We got a circuit up and running, but seemed to have some problems here and there – a broken rail end just about holding together, and something wrong with the electrics (I didn’t get involved).

We decided what we need is a working party.  Either a Saturday, or an additional evening, when we can address some of the wear and tear our boards have suffered over the months.

Another interesting discussion was the need for some new corner modules.  We have four corner boards to make the usual running loop, but they must be 15 years old now.  Despite some structural repair and one or two scenic upgrades, they are just getting very tired.  Perhaps this should be the project for the year?

And finally, I spent most of the evening with the treasurer finalising the show accounts.  It’s amazing how the number of ticket stubs never exactly matches the door takings.  And there is the punter who wants to buy and additional programme.  I’ve no doubt the final accounts will be slightly different from my show spreadsheet, but we are there and thereabouts, and we show a profit.  Job done!
