Margaret reported that the Governor Ms Quentin Bryce will attend the Show this year as per letter with protocol rules attached. Margaret to fill in form and send to Aide de Camp, James Lister. There is a small problem regarding the form as they require the name and contact number of the Mayor to pick them up from the airport. However elections are to be held after the deadline to send the form in , so we won’t know the name of the Mayor. Margaret will ring Mick Cosgrove and seek advice.. Peggy Greenup has agreed to attend to the Governor s her escort as David too busy.
It was decided that we would obtain a marquee to hold the luncheon. Margaret to contact Luck Ford to request marquee and get size., failing that consult with Lilian.

Margaret to ring Leona Gadsby again re this matter and to get the approval of the Showground committee. David will contact Ross regarding cabinet for sink and Ivan will assist with plumbing if feasible.
It was decided that the luncheon would be finger food. As most people associated with catering at the Show will be too busy to do the luncheon, and our regular person is unable to do it, Kylie will approach Domiciliary. The plan is that the Show pay for all the food and pay catering cost of $150. If Domiciliary are unable to assist Kylie will approach other organizations.
Sue and Margaret have offered to assist with solid white tablecloths, more will be needed.
