The minutes of the previous meeting were accepted unanimously.

Review of AGM via MSN

Chris asked whether it was successful to hold the AGM at the internet championships.

David replied that it had been advertised well in advance, and that no complaints had been received either before, during or after the AGM, and therefore assumed that it was acceptable to the members.

Chris asked whether internet access could be a problem, but Konrad mentioned that there is funding available to help with internet connection for the tournament.

It was therefore decided to hold the AGM at the internet championships again.
