Newsletter nr. 32 – April 1989

Due to sailing events already planned in Muiden during the weekend of 9th till 11th of June, when we had planned our reunion at the meeting last February, the administration has postponed the reunion by one week; so it will now be held from 16th till 18th June.
Winter Meeting 25 February 1989

The winter meeting was held again in the Apollo Hotel and was well attended,. The Gerdts family came all the way from Germany and Mr. and Mrs. Liebert from the U.K. The administration was very please to see that new members like Mr. and Mrs. Lammers, Mr. and Mrs. Maris, Mr. and Mrs. Pieterse, Mr. and Mrs. Staal and Mr. and Mrs. Visser were also present.

The palaver started at 18.15 and the following points were covered:

– The financial situation of the Alcyone Circle has improved considerably, as most members with a backlog in contribution payments have paid; hence the membership fee will not be raised next year.

– It was agreed upon by all of the members present that we would participate in Sail Amsterdam 1990.

– In the summer of 1989 it will be the 25th anniversary of the Alcyone Circle. Mr. Lieberts suggestion to celebrate this occasion was welcomed by all. The weekend planned was the 9th, 10th, and 11th of June 1989, but has been moved to the 16th, 17th and 18th of June 1989. (see introduction).

– The administration asked for members to assist them in organizing meetings and reunions for the Alcyone Circle. Mr. Lammers and Mr. Pieterse volunteered for the job.

The dinner proved to be as excellent as last time (in 1988) and the administration can look back on a very successful evening.
