Newsletter September, 2017

Hello there,

We are just a few days back from our annual trip to visit our son who lives just outside Ithaca, a lovely town at the bottom of one of the American Finger Lakes in Upper State New York – an area well worth a visit.  We were lucky to have avoided any of the storms that have struck the US in the past couple of weeks.   However, they did delay our departure by a full day.

Since coming home I have been busy sorting out VSMA business – so hence the September Newsletter!

                         Fred Damodaran from Blairgowrie

Directors’ Meeting

Your Directors are due for a meeting within the next couple of weeks when they will be discussing several topics, including the Autumn Run, the next Reunion, the website and the forthcoming Annual General Meeting (sometime in December) among other things.  If you have any reasonable suggestions you may wish the Directors to discuss, I would be pleased to receive them before the 20th September so that I can present them to the Board.

Autumn Run, Sunday 8th October

Charlie Young asked if I would remind you of this event (if you haven’t already entered) to consider coming along to what promises to be a very enjoyable social afternoon’s run in Ayrshire.  I have attached a PDF below of the Regulations and Entry Form.  Hope to see you there.

Anyway, that’s all for this month – sorry for it being so brief….

However, here is a link to something you could well be interested in – especially those of you with an eye to the future…… Take a look Here  

Yours aye,

Stuart Parker
