Meeting with KLB John Gillon The Chairman and Wayne Hale met with John last week at his request. He wanted opinion on the planned Jean Sampson Reserve toilets and Panuku Auckland’s wish to add the Rosie Bolt Reserve in Alfred Street to their For Sale list. He also told us that possible actions over the rising tide levels in Little Shoal Bay are being investigated and agreed to get action on the inadequate safety fencing outside the area fenced so well by NZTA on Stokes’ Point. John takes over from Danielle Grant as Chair shortly.
High tide on February 3 2018 had bowlers very worried but the kids enjoyed it..
February 2018 Executive Meeting and Open Forum Our first meeting for the year was at 7pm on Tuesday 13 February. Minutes will be put on the Links and Documents page as soon as they are completed. We noted some successes (fencing and viewing under the Bridge right on the Point; 2-lanes left turn from Rodney into Queen Street.) and a number of unresolved issues.

If you wish to pay these now (still $25 per member) feel free to do so and make sure you put 2018Subs in the Code field.)
December Executive meeting At the December meeting Chris Wargent resigned as Secretary, as she has sold her house and is moving out of Northcote. The Chairman made a small presentation and thanked her for her work for the Association as member and Executive member for a number of years, recently as Secretary. Chris has also been active in the Little Shoal Bay Protection Society, and since her retirement as a primary school principal, has continued organising combined schools music festivals. Business: NRA will write a policy position about Skypath, mentioning the obvious benefits as well as serious concerns about the current planning (or lack of it). The work in Queen Street is projected to be completed by AT during February. Concerns have been raised by members over the drinking, bad behaviour, noise and vandalism occurring often at the boat ramp at the end of Sulphur Beach Road. Other matters: See the minutes when posted for further details.
Proposed Changes to Rules The Executive will review the draft amendments to the Rules/Constitution at its March meeting. They will then advise members of a revised draft and when it can be dealt with.

The revision has been developed over the past six years based on experience and suggestions from a number of members.
