Some 54 members and friends attended this year's AGM, and a jolly time was had by all. We had two new recruits joining the Society, Steven Ho and David Tarrant - welcome! Fully paid-up plus lifetime memberships now stand at 50, and we expect this number will, as in previous years, increase to over 70 in the coming months.
The Treasurer reported that the Society's funds were in a healthy state and that consequently annual subscriptions would remain at the present $50 per annum (plus an additional $50 for new members to cover the cost of the HKSW polo-shirt); door fees remain at $40 a meeting. The Society raised HK$900 by auctioning the items donated by George Wellington, Andrzej Cierpicki and Cedric Mauvielle. On behalf of the Committee, we thank them for their generous donations. Last year's committee was re-elected and Lawrence Hung was elected to join the Committee to look after the affairs of Board Wargamers. The Society now has 7 Committee Members.
The winner of 2012 Memoir '44 Competition was Sunshine Ng and the Runner-up was James Bishop. They will be presented with their trophies shortly.
14 Members entered the 2013 Memoir '44 Competition. The final will be decided between Cheung Kar Fai and either David Galt and Jimmy Chau.
7 Members joined the 2013 Advanced Squad Leader Competition. Semi-finalists are Li Tai Wah, Erwin Lau and Simon Lai.
12 Members participated in the 2013 Pocket Battles Competition. The winner was Hermann Ng and the Runner-Up was Tong Chi Wai.
