NZSG AGM at Hamilton
This commenced today at 3pm at the Kingsgate hotel in Hamilton. Tainui started the proceedings with a prayer and hymn. The outgoing President, David Bryant announced a time constraint on speakers hinting to us that he expected a lot of discussion. In fact, it turned out that the meeting finished 30mins early.

There was a great turnout of 380 voters including proxy votes. 263 members being present. The scrutineers for the voting were announced, being, Colleen Main, Carolyn Williams, Trish Tohuy (sic), Diane Wilson, Alison Glennie, Bruce Tudor, Robyn Williams and Elaine Bell.

There are three new cd's on sale at the family history fair in the weekend. 1882 Landowners, 3electoral rolls, and Evening Post obituaries.

The next council was welcomed and there are a couple of new faces. The next AGM will be in Dunedin to mark 150yrs since the goldrush in the south.

This was the first time I'd attended a NZSG AGM, I can understand why so many choose not to go. Not even a cup of tea on offer. I drove back to Auckland with my tongue hanging out.
