Name of Club

Several names were suggested; 'Frosterley', 'Well Met', 'Cloud 9', 'Under the Weather'. The Committee would appreciate suggestions.

Constitution and Rules Governing Eligibility

No firm decisions have been made but it is expected that the main objective will be to maintain contracts between long serving officers of the Bureau by conducting social events, particularly informal lunches.

The committee was requested to draw up proposals.

Fees & Subscriptions

The entrance fee was set at $2 and the annual fee at $4. These are subject review.

(NOTE: Fees and subscriptions should not be forwarded until rules regarding rates and eligibility have been settled.)

Time and Place of Regular Lunch Time Functions

Informal lunches will be held on the fourth Thursday of each month at a location to be fixed (The Carlton Bowling Club has been suggested as a suitable venue). The first lunch will be held on Thursday 24 June 1976.

Farewell for Retired Officers 21 June 1976

This is being organised by the Bureau Social Club and every assistance will be given by the Club.
