G’day Music Lovers.
Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Sat 19th of Nov at 2.30
It will be held at the Atherton CWA Hall on Jack Street
All members are welcome to attend.
Membership renewals will be due after the AGM.
The club highly values its members and the $20 fee for the membership.
Memberships help the club in many ways; firstly, financially the club has ongoing admin costs that are a considerable amount of money each year, like insurance and accountant auditing fees etc. Memberships also indicate the level of community support for the club, which helps the small number of dedicated volunteers who spend many hours organising and putting on events feel that they are doing something worthwhile for the Music Lovers Community. It also helps with grant applications for new equipment or putting on larger events like the Kairi Children’s Rainbow Fair.
Grant monies cannot be used for admin costs or rent, so the rest of the money has to come from our fund raising activities.
Unfortunately we haven’t been able to offer members discounts on the door or bar this year, but hopefully, when we get a new venue we can reinstate these benefits.
Last weekend TML sound and stage crew managed the Fringe Stage at the Tablelands Folk Festival. A big thankyou goes out to our dedicated volunteers Matt, Dom, Debbie, Mel, KC, Tigger, Phil and Bruce who all helped to make it happen. Big thanks to Case for the loan of his trailer over the weekend.
Matt and Dom mixed sound for over thirty different acts from single performers to big uke bands. There have been many positive comments about how smoothly the stage ran and the great quality of the sound over the two and a half days.
We had a bumpy start on Fri afternoon when a storm hit just as we were about to turn on the sound system. The water poured onto the stage and we scrambled to keep the gear from getting drenched. After the initial shock we slowly dried everything out and turned the system on just minutes before the opening of the Festival and Welcome to Country.
A special thanks to Raymond who helped during the storm.
