John Clark

President 2003 - 04


               Having had it suggested to me for a number of years that I should look to becoming Junior Vice President and having managed to successfully avoid the commitment, I finally relented must have been at a weak moment, possibly when under the influence of alcohol.


             However once having got my hands on the Presidential chain and with the bell under my control, my whole life changed dramatically, in that:-


1.   I got my meal first at meetings

2.   I could ring the bell at any time on a whim and everybody stopped and listened to me.

3.   I could stop any member from speaking if I felt so desired to do so, which was quite useful particularly enjoyable when you have people like David Bluck getting on their feet rambling incessantly.


                I do feel that we are particularly lucky in that we have a club like no other and the support I had from members was exceptional and the guidance from the secretary, Tony King, invaluable.


                Having had to follow as President in the wake of Mike Butcher and with Michael Woods coming up behind me as Vice President, I certainly had a high standard to try to live up to. It was certainly a year I shall never forget and one that has probably scarred me for life.
