ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND MEMBERS’ NIGHT
THURSDAY 2nd DECEMBER 2021 at 7.45pm
     This meeting provides an opportunity to get essential Club business out of the way very quickly, and then enjoy the company of fellow members in a reminiscence of the past year, entertainment, feasting and fun. The evening will consist of two parts:
1. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND ELECTION OF 2022 COMMITTEE
     The minutes of the 2020 AGM are available on the FGC website. Please read for approval at the meeting. Brief reports for the year 2021 will be presented by the President and Treasurer. All committee positions will then be declared vacant and elections held for Officers and Committee for 2022. We congratulate members who have already nominated for vacant positions and incumbent members who have agreed to continue on the committee. Although we have sufficient nominees already, nominations remain open until the time of the election. In the event of nominations exceeding the number of available positions it will be necessary to hold a secret ballot. A nomination sheet is included with this Bulletin, listing the positions to be filled. Read the instructions carefully. Completed nomination sheets should be sent to the President (contact details on the back of this Bulletin). Nominations can also be taken on the night.
     All of the above business should be out of the way quickly and we can then relax and enjoy our………………..
2. MEMBERS’ NIGHT. The programme will include:
A quiz based on the year’s activities, compiled and presented by Mike Burrell.
A retrospective of FGC activities in video and photos presented by Laurence Campbell.
Christmas raffle: great prizes, only 50c a ticket.
Rock and mineral samples donated to the Club by our late Founding President Dr David Corbett will be on display and available for members to take for free.
And last but not least: food, drinks and conviviality with a Christmas theme and Bob Major’s special Christmas cake.
     So come and enjoy a great evening. The meeting format is not amenable to zooming – so be there in person if you can!
Since Covid restrictions still apply please do not bring a plate to share – everything will be provided.
     The meeting will be held in the Mawson Lecture Theatre (for meeting) and Sprigg room (for refreshments), Mawson Laboratories, corner of Victoria Drive and Frome Road, University of Adelaide at 7.45 pm.

Upcoming Workshop

There will be a workshop before the December meeting.

Cynthia Pyle will run a workshop titled “ Mineral crystals and aggregates of crystals" in the Sprigg Room, commencing at 6.30 pm.

If they are provided with the right conditions, minerals can grow into a variety of crystal forms. Many crystals can also grow together form groups known as aggregates. In this workshop we will look at a variety of crystals, both single crystals and aggregates.

The workshop will start at 6.30 pm, but people are welcome to come in later, as everyone
works independently or with a friend.

The workshop will be held in the Sprigg Room. Go past the Tate Museum and take the next
staircase on the right. The Sprigg Room is right at the top of the stairs. Anyone who arrives after 6.30pm and can't get into the building can ring the FGC bell if it is in place.
