  2. A154 parts rescue & storage in Henry’s Barn – Richard James
  3. What we have done with our boats / other boats in 2020 – all
  4. Thoughts from all in order on the AOA buying spares from scrap merchants (T4 & A166).
  5. Thoughts on having the AGM at The Tamesis Club on 27 Feb 2021. The current plan is that theCommittee will wait until the last possible moment before deciding whether it could go ahead or not, due to COVID restrictions. If only 25-30 members attended, they could (if COVID laws allowed) sit round the outside of the Club socially distanced. It would be unlikely that food would be served, but members could bring their own lunch. Or the AGM could be slipped to late spring summer 2021. – Richard James
  6. Any other questions ?
  7. Request for Bulletin articles – Bernard Marshall
  8. Summary and close – Mike Dixon
