1. Proposer: Peter Logan, seconded: Trevor Birkbeck
That the DHPC offers the use of club sites for competition purposes to the BPCup, BOS
(HG), and other inter-club competitions as appropriate.

The use of club sites for competitions is infrequent but, since it affects members, it has become a
tradition to seek approval at the AGM.

2. Proposer: Dave Bradwell seconded: Peter Balmforth
Flying Fund
That the money held within the DHPC Flying Fund can only be spent with the agreement of two thirds
of the members present at a properly constituted AGM or EGM.

At the 2005 AGM James Goldsborough proposed that a membership increase of £10 (£15 for joint membership) to be ring fenced into a fighting fund for future sites purchase. Following much discussion (see 2005 AGM minutes) covering site ownership, cost, membership fees, ring fencing and reciprocal rights, James amended the proposal to increase the membership fee by £10 (£15 for joint) to setup a fund for ensuring the future of flying in the Dales. The term 'ring fenced' was dropped. The committee would like to clarify whether they have the authority to dip into this money (not ring fenced) or whether the membership would like to be consulted (ring fenced).
