The President reported on the events of the year, reports were made by the treasurer, AREC , etc and ofice holders elected for the next year.
 Some of the events were the ongoing work at the ECMOT, the car rally, the national amateur day and the speakers at the meetings, the highlight being the talk on alternate energy in Gisborne by Jim of Gisborne Rewinds. Any update on the repeaters was given with thanks to all those who had assisted especially the donations of time and equipment by Electrinet
 The subs are to remain at $35 and the branch needs to have 15 members to remain incorporated. At present it has 24 financial members but with Basil ZL2UT becoming a silent key and both Ric ZL2RIC and Douglas ZL1BFS  leaving the district this is likely to reduce
The incoming committee will need to decide at what stage an unfinancial member ceases to be a member ( NZART  has a date of March31st for  a due date of the lst of January when the member becomes unfinancial however has the right to withhold services to non financial members ie no Jan/Feb break-In)
 An informal general meeting followed with a talk by a visiting amateur a friend of Rogers from near Walkworth, Ray ZL1RW on the amateur activity in that area especially as set up for emergencies
