I. AGM News
The Society will hold its 29th AGM on 8/5/2010 (2nd Saturday as 1st Saturday is a holiday) at the Senior Officer Mess, 6/F Caine House, Old Wing, Police HQ, Arsenal Street, Wanchai. We have about 57members now.



(1) Annual subscription due

The committee will propose to raise annual subscription back to the level before the Financial Tsunami, i.e HK$100. It is also likely that we shall increase our monthly door fee as well to subsidize the increasing operating cost for renting the double-room for all of our Emax meetings. We shall collect HK$150 at the AGM, HK$100 annual subscription and HK$50 for door fee of that day.



(2) Tentative schedule for our AGM as follows:

Semi-Finals of ASL Competition (organizer: Lawrence Ho)

Possibly 1st round of DBR Competition (organiser: James Cheung)

Should we cannot complete the competitions within the AGM, we shall continue them in the future meetings.

(3) Curry Lunch Booking
As we needed to book for the Curry Lunch Buffet in advance, the Buffet will be served to those who reserve a place first and those who have not booked in advance will have to wait to see if there are available place for them.

(4) Auctions News
(a) Herbert Wong of Dragon Painting Services (DPS) confirmed that DPS will donate some painted figures to be auctioned at the AGM to subsidise the Society's operations as in previous years. Thanks again to our life members Herbert Wong and Tony Lee for their generousity and support to the Society and the Hong Kong Wargames Hobby. Last year, we have raised about HK$8,000 from their donation.


(b) Basic rules of the auctions
You can bring items to be auctioned at the AGM. From past experience, the final selling price of stuff sold at HKSW auction is lower than that selling at eBay.

Firstly, you have to list your reserve price (minimum price)

Secondly, it is natural to sell things related to history, wargames, boardgames, fantasy, etc. as we are a Society of wargamers.

Thirdly, if you want to attract members interest, you can send me a list of your stuff with the reserve price so that I can send them to the members before AGM.



Fourthly, you can sell the stuff at listed price without going through the auction procedures on that day on a first come first serve or discretionary basis or you can have them sell at the auction. It's up to you.

Finally, you are responsible to dispose of all your unsold items. The Society will return them to you on that day if they are unsold.

I suggest you have some ten dollars and twenty dollar notes readily available as changes.

Please let me know in case you are organising any game on that day.

Kindly let me know which competitions you would like to join if I have missed your name above for administration reason.
