Swapping - Members are reminded that it is the individual's responsibility to organise a swap. One of the best ways to do that is to check whether you are rostered on well ahead of time and contact someone who is on a market further down the track to arrange a swap.

Our CSU Scholarship Winner Charlie Shadwell
Charlie Shadwell, CSU Science Scholarship winner, is pictured with Peter Green, Charlie, Bob Willis and Greg Conkey.
Charlie thanked all the members of the club and specifically Peter Green and Bob Willis because he had gotten to know them well.
He is from Dubbo and a property on the Macquarie River. He went to an Agricultural Boys High School and is enrolled in CSU Veterinarian College which is a six year program. It takes in 60 students each year and this year there are 8 male students and 52 females. There was a big chuckle from the Audience when Charlie announced the male female disparity.  Charlie admitted to blushing.
He has thoroughly enjoyed his time at CSU and got passes on all of his courses.  He expressed his sincere gratitude to the members and due to health issues with his family … the financial support is very timely.  Bob Willis noted Charlie’s principal identified Charlie as being the best student he has ever had.
President's Report
President Pykies latest email - July 22, 2019
 Hi fellow Rotarians
Finished the Irish golfing experience yesterday with the local Irishman winning The Open. Wet and cold so local knowledge was a help. A Japanese golfing tourist asked the question “ I wonder if they have ever thought of having it in the summer”
Doug and Wendy Conkey went off to Scotland yesterday. Doug with crushed fingers and Wendy with cut of requiring stitches. Dangerous game this golf. Pyke’s are in England with friends before heading to the island of Guernsey for about a week before turning east for Oz. 
Have not found a Rotary Club for a make up but have looked....well had a cursory glance. 
Will only miss one more meeting after this one and will be Home for next Saturday market as well.  
Hope Paul Milde and James Hamilton are running the ship. Does not seem that difficult leading from afar. With that in mind we need a President Elect for next year. 
I think I am still missing you all

Our Meeting July 23, 2019

Speakers Wanted

John Gray came to the podium and announced that he is going to be doing Programs this year which involves scheduling meetings and guest speakers.  We will be having once a month a club assembly/Hillis Day where we have members discuss club issues.  He also wishes to reintroduce “This is my life” by members …. both newer and older.  He is asking members to keep a lookout for good guest speakers.


Sergeant Session Geoff Breust

Geoff Breust was this weeks Sergeant and immediately fined John Gray for picking on him.  He fined Greg Conkey, John Egan, Neil Pinto for being late.  Phil McIntosh and Paul Milde for various infringements.  Richard Baguley for giving up thinking. Raoul was congratulated by Geoff and asked to pay for the next three years of fines in advance. He asked members if they know what happened on the 14th of July (Bastille Day) and then proceeded to read off a list of unnoteworthy events that happened on that day. Geoff then proceeded to run a slide presentation of rather humorous signs a few of which are displayed below.

Raoul Taking New Position

Raoul Mascharenas announced to members that he was taking a position in Melbourne. He has accepted a position at the University of Melbourne to study orthodontics and he will be, unfortunately, leaving Wollundry  at the end of the year.  He plans to return to Wagga Wagga after he finishes his course. After Raoul made his announcement, Neil Pinto added that Raoul failed to inform the members that he had won the positions over several hundred candidates.

James Hamilton Updates Members on Fraud Attempts

James Hamilton announced that Wollundry Club Accounts have been frozen due to the attempts to fraudulently withdraw money from Club Accounts and PP James  and President David Pyke’s accounts.
No money was lost from any Wollundry account, however we cannot do internet transactions yet.   Beyond Bank is investigating.  Strange as it may seem, the fraudster paid a $3,000 Origin Electrical bill with one of the hacked accounts.  It does not effect Gears’n’Beers Account.

Are You an Eater

At Tuesdays meeting Treasurer Adrian informed members that we had ordered 9 meals more than we needed.  This means that people are not sending in their apologies or are not correctly recorded as Eaters or Non Eaters.  
Everyone...Please review the Eaters/Non Eaters list below and if your status is not correct..send an email to John Mason correcting it.
