Annual General Meeting of NEOC Members
Sunday, 13 June 2010
Menotomy Rocks Park, Arlington, MA

Orienteering always helps work up an appetite. That's why the orienteering actually comes first at Menotomy Rocks Park. There will be a String Course for the younger kids, White Course for beginners, plus two contour training courses. Beginners welcome. Beginner instruction will be available from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. The cost of instruction is included in the price of registration for a course. If you will be bringing a group of more than five people please email or call the event director to let her know ahead of time. Everyone is invited to stay for the picnic and meeting.

For the picnic, we could not get a permit for grilling, so cold picnic food is the order of the day (or hot covered dishes if you like). NEOC will provide plates, napkins, flatware, cups and punch,. For the potluck part, bring either a salad/side dish, or a dessert to share: if your last name begins with A - M, a dessert; last name N - Z, a salad/side dish.

A lawn chair or two would be a good idea. Bug repellant would be an excellent idea! For the supermarket-challenged there will be some pizza delivered, $1.00 a slice. Please RSVP Joanne Sankus if you will be having pizza so we can get an approximate count.

The Club Meeting is open to everyone. (Only members may vote.) It will start around 1PM. There will be short reports from the club officers, a question-and-answer period, and an introduction to the candidates for election. The slate of candidates will be posted before the meeting. We need a quorum to make it a legal election. If you can't attend, you can give your signed proxy to a member who is coming, or mail your proxy ahead of time. All methods are acceptable. A proxy form, along with a list of candidates, was e-mailed to NEOC members on June 9.

Rain or shine, hope to see you there!
