Equipment Officer's Report


23 October 2005



I have taken over this role in January 2005 after the departure of John Curran. Thanks to John for keeping impeccable records of the equipment.


After the damage to D1 block back in April 2005, it was decided that 3 trophies kept in one of the cabinets be relocated to the residence of Marty Chadwick and Debbie Jenkins (18 Tallowood St, Yamanto). These trophies are the One Hour perpetual trophy, the Friday Knight junior perpetual trophy and the Western Suburbs junior perpetual trophy.


In July 2005, one German clock was sold to Shane Martin.


In August 2005, all 11 DGT clocks had their batteries replaced after some were failing in the previous month. Also at this time, the purchase of 2 floor heaters & extension cables was made for the colder months.


Thanks to Stuart and Ray for assisting in this year’s equipment count.
