A Call for Nominations for committee positions was published on this web site on 14 November 2016 and emailed to Members on 15 Nov. Nominations closed at 5 pm on Monday 28 November.
At the close of nominations the number of nominations received for each position was equal to or less than the number of vacancies, therefore no ballots are required at the AGM. The results are as follows:
President. 1 required. 1 nomination received for Rob Green. Rob is elected.
Vice-President. 1 required. 1 nomination received for Ian Short. Ian is elected.
Secretary. 1 required. 1 nomination received for Anthony Cavallaro. Anthony is elected.

Committee Members. 6 required. 7 nominations received in order as follows:
Yasmine Weatherall, Anthony Cavallaro, Ian Short, Bob Clifford, Rob Curtis, David Lock, David Curtis.
Anthony and Ian, being already elected to named positions as described above, are not eligible to be elected to committee member positions, leaving 5 eligible nominations for 6 vacancies, therefore the remaining 5 are elected as Committee Members as follows: Yasmine Weatherall, Bob Clifford, Rob Curtis, David Lock, David Curtis.
One committee member position remains vacant. That vacancy may be filled in due course under Section 16.9 of the Constitution which says: “If a casual vacancy for the Committee shall occur, the Committee may co-opt a Member to fill such a vacancy until the next AGM or general meeting where nominations for the vacancy shall be called and an election held if required.”
The 11th position on the Committee is reserved for the Licensor’s Representative. The Licensor (RMM Pty Ltd) nominates its delegate for that reserved position.

Two of our Warriors SA bands, MOSS and Strange Brew Band are each about to release their own CDs of original music.
Could this be a Weekend Warriors first?
The bands will be jointly launching their new CDs and performing them live on stage at The Gov in Adelaide on 7 August from 1pm.
Both bands grew out of the Weekend Warriors Program and developed through the Warriors SA Club. Band members are all members of Warriors SA and both bands perform at Club events as well as at their own independent gigs.
Congratulations to all involved.
MOSS grew out of the Weekend Warriors music program and Warriors SA recreational music club. They are regular performers at Warriors SA events as well as being in demand for independent gigs.
MOSS‘s line-up of Warrior members Suzie Craig, Rob Brooking, Clive Pollard, David White and Mark Simpkin talk about their experiences of playing live music in a band as mature musicians.
We look forward to seeing MOSS at many more Warriors SA and other shows and wish them every success with their CD.
