My Early Years in the Bureau of Meteorology
The Formation of the Frosterley Club
Outline Proposal for 'The Olympians Club'
- Annual membership to cost a nominal sum (joining fee $2 or $4 p.a.) to cover cost of communication between members phone or letter. N.B. $2 only pays for 11 stamps (with 2c over).
- Members to pay for their own lunches (lumpy stuff and liquid) and transport.
Nothing formal but there could be a nominal President (I suggest the Director of Meteorology ex-officio) and a small secretariat team (1 to 3) to negotiate with the Bureau administration, the Social Club and the manager(s) of the venue(s) for the lunches and other functions on the necessary arrangements.
Visiting Bureau officers (and related persons) from interstate and the field who would be eligible for membership would be invited to the functions (N.B. RDs and other conferences?). Other visitorsfrom overseas or from other government departments might be invited if convenient. No sex discrimination.
