    "The rifles that beat the Boer" is a presentation showing a collection of  relevant rifles of the period, and discussion thereof.  Other opinions will be canvassed.

    An added attraction will be a demonstration and sampling of various techniques for making Biltong.

    The evening starts with a BBQ at 7:00 pm, and the other events start at 8:00 pm.  The BBQ will be provided by the club, but you need to bring your own liquid refreshments.

    There will be two notices sent to you.  Please respond to the RSVP in the second notice so we can get the catering right.

    See you there

    What: A Special General Meeting is called to make a minor amendment to the new NADS Constitution voted in at the AGM on 24th June 2020

    When: 7.30pm on Tuesday September 1st 2020

    Why: After submitting our new Constitution to Charities Services they requested we amend the wording of clause 28.2 – the ‘Winding Up’ clause

    Existing Wording: clause 28.2, “If upon the winding up or dissolution of the Branch there remains, after the satisfaction of all its liabilities, any property whatsoever, the same shall not be paid to or distributed among the members of the Branch but shall be given or transferred to another branch of the National Association or to the National Association. If there are no other branches of the National Association or the National Association does not exist, at that time, then surplus assets must be transfer to a not-for-profit organisation, society or charity which has similar objects of the Branch, to be determined by a resolution passed by a majority of the members of the Branch present in person at a general meeting to be held according to these rules at or before the winding up or dissolution of the Branch.”

    Proposed Wording: clause 28.2 “If upon the winding up or dissolution of the Branch there remains, after the satisfaction of all its liabilities, any property whatsoever, the same shall not be paid to or distributed among the members of the Branch but shall be given or transferred to an organisation which has similar charitable objects to the Branch, to be determined by a resolution passed by a majority of the members of the Branch present in person at a general meeting to be held according to these rules at or before the winding up or dissolution of the Branch.”

    Reason for the Change: As a registered charity if NADS was to wind up for whatever reason the assets and property of a charity must be donated to another charity. As the National Association is not a registered charity the Charities Act states they cannot be the beneficiaries of our assets and property. This wording is simpler, and would include the other branches.

    Please email treasurer@nads.org.nz if you have any questions in regard to this change.

    Kind regards,

    Mark Blackie

    September members night.

    "One-pot delights and disasters" is a cooking competition with very few rules, and even fewer guarantees of survival.

    Rules:

    Teams of two (one of the team must be a branch member, the other can be someone who can actually cook)

    Only one pot allowed - no size limit (provide own heat source)

    One hour allowed

    No use of the kitchen

    Must produce food for four (one for the judges and the other three for us to eat afterwards)

    The evening starts with the cooking.  Guests are encouraged to ask questions of the competitors, and generally offer helpful and unwanted advice.

    Judging will start at 8:00 pm, and we will eat the results later.

    Judges TBA

    Bring your own liquid refreshments.

    If you want to enter a team, please email Bob after you get the first notice

    October members night.

    Two branch members will put on a display of the skills and techniques needed to break down an animal ready for the cuts and joints for cooking or storage.

    The evening will start with the demonstrations, then progress to the cooking and eating phase when the butchery is done.

    Depending on the source of the animals, we might need to charge a small "dining fee", so bring $10.00 per head please, just in case.  There will be no charge for road kill.

    Bring your own liquid refreshments.

    There will be two notices sent to you.  Please respond to the RSVP in the second notice so we can get the catering right.
