At the meeting, Carson detailed the club’s successes in 2017, including the sealing of the road and the completion of the toilet facilities at the club and the staging of the State Field Championships in Armidale.  

Matt Walcott was elected vice president, Dan Alter, treasurer and Margaret Carson secretary.

The club plans to hold more ranking rounds so members will be able to obtain ratings and a national ranking.

There will also be a round of the State Grand Prix in May.

Carson will take two club members to the National Junior Championships in April.
