Attached is the very sad news that Dick Dodds has had to resign from all types of Kindred Club activity owing to a terminal illness.
 
Dick has put his heart and soul into both the South Canterbury (Timaru) Savage Club and the Association of Kindred Clubs of New Zealand Inc.
 
His knowledge of the 'workings' of the movement is unsurpassed and will never be replaced. Also as a talented musician, he is held in high esteem by people all over New Zealand and this is terrible news for us all.

Dominion Secretary

Letter from Dick Dodds

 

Hi Lynton

 

I would like to confirm that I now have terminal cancer and will go to Christchurch on the 19th January for Radiation for pain relief and more time.

 

I will therefore be giving up all the clubs I am in and would like to respectfully ask if you could let the Executive Members of the Association know and the Club Secretaries.  I have enjoyed the many years participating in Conferences and visiting some 34 Clubs Nationwide and would like to wish everyone all the best for the years ahead.

 

Good luck to Hastings Orphan’s Club for a successful Conference this year and a full Executive.

 

Regards

Past President and Past Secretary

Dick Dodds.

NEWSLETTER - DECEMBER 2021

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happier New Year with the hope that we all can perform on a regular basis without the threat of the dreaded Covid!

 

Attached you will find the usual forms to be completed and returned to me by the END OF FEBRUARY

1Club Officers and Dates of meetings

2Affiliation Fees

3Nominations for Executive Positions

Dominion President, Senior Vice President, North Island Councillors, South Island Councillors, Dominion Past President (Bill Oram).

We are also looking for a Secretary/Treasurer as I (Lynton Hotter) am retiring from this position.

It is hoped that someone is willing to take this on.

 

I wish to inform all Clubs and Executive that the Central Group of the Kindred Clubs of NZ Inc have gone into recess – taking effect from Sunday 26th September 2021.

 

Kindred Club finances have taken a down turn over the last 6 years, mainly due to Covid 19 affecting Clubs.  Total Club membership has dropped drastically over the last 3 years which therefore means less Financial members in Clubs – less Finance for the Association.

For the last 6 years I have been using my “Out of Pocket Expenses” for photos, copy paper, printer ink stamps etc in an effort to help the financial situation of the Association.

 

The second reason is that neither the Hokitika Conference or the Web Link Telephone Conference held by Blenheim received any financial gain at all. I have previously pointed out that the Association relies on Affiliation Fees on Club Membership and revenue from the Clubs who hold Conferences.

 

All Clubs have received notification that the 44th  Biennial Dominion Conference will be held on Queen’s Birthday Weekend from 3rd to 5th June,  2022 - hosted by the Hastings Orphans Club.

These Conferences are very important so I am urging ALL CLUBS to make the effort to attend!

Please book your Club accommodation early as it is only 6 months away.

 

I trust that ALL CLUBS have discussed the name changes that are being used and the need to have 

a UNIVERSAL name.  

All Clubs and the Executive members will have received a letter from Past Dominion President/

Past Dominion Secretary/Treasurer, Dick Dodds on the subject and he will be lodging a Remit for 

the Dominion Conference at Hastings next year.

 

Some of our Kindred Clubs are really struggling to survive and are likely to fold over the 

next couple of years. The Hawera Savage Club is in the throws of winding up completely.

The Stratford Savage Club, Masterton Savage Club, Horowhenua Savage Club to name but a

few are only just hanging on.

 

These Clubs really only have a couple of concerts per Season as with their limited numbers

of members it is getting harder for them to provide items.

 

The Eltham Savage Club are changing from a Saturday night to a Saturday afternoon concert to

try and gain more membership and will be inviting the general public to attend.

 

This is what the Waitara Savage Club has been doing for the last few years with some success.

We would probably get 15 to 30 members of the public attending each concert and everyone

agrees that it is far better to perform to an audience than without one.

 

We may not have anyone who wants to join the Club – but they keep on coming to enjoy

the program.

 

For those who have lost loved ones – our deepest sympathy goes out to you.

To those who are in hospital, or have been in hospital (or unwell) a very cheerie “get well soon”. 

 

Here’s to a great Conference in Hastings – June 2022

 

Best Wishes

Lynton

NEWSLETTER - AUGUST 2021

 

The Executive Meeting was held as planned on June 19 in Blenheim.

Arising from this - with the change to our name by allowing Clubs to take “Savage” or “Orphans” out of their titles we have been left with no uniformity of what to call our Clubs.

 

Please put your thinking caps on and come up with a uniform name suitable for use by all the Kindred Clubs.

 

Clubs who have changed their names :

Ashburton Friendship and Entertainment Club

Horowhenua Parker, Rhythm and Rhym 

Macandrew Bay Orphans and Entertainers Club Inc

Manawatu - On Stage Manawatu M.S.A

Masterton Variety Club

Nelson - Variety Entertainment Club of Nelson

Oamaru Variety Entertainers Inc

Waimate Savage and Enertainment Club Inc

Waitara Savage and Entertainment Club Inc 

 

The Hawera Savage Club has sadly gone into recess.

 The 44th Biennial Conference will be held in Hastings during Queens Birthday Weekend - June 3rd - 6th 2022.

 

Conference Registration Fee of $110 per person will be reduced to $100 per person if paid by March 31st 2022.

 

The Gisborne Orphans Club have changed their date from 25th September - it is now the 18th September as they clashed with the Hastings Orphans Club and they like to support each other.

 

The return of lockdown owing to Covid-19 has again disrupted all activities for everyone throughout New Zealand.

 

A reminder to all clubs about scams on our computers still being around. Remember don’t get caught out by these. If it sounds too good to be true is most likely is. Certainly check out its authenticity before you pay anything.

 

To those Clubs who have lost members please accept our sympathy.

Congratulations to those Clubs whose members are having Birthdays or Wedding Anniversaries.

 

Dominion President Bill Oram has officially visited most of the Clubs but illness got to him so he has still one or two to see. He will notify these Clubs accordingly.

 

Best wishes for the remainder of 2021 - we will beat this Covid-19 bug yet!!!

Take care  - keep safe - be happy

Lynton Hotter

Dominion Secretary/Treasurer

Good morning Lynton, could you please note that the Gisborne Orphans club has decided to cancel all scheduled meetings for September and October due to the country being in lock-down

NEWSLETTER - MARCH 2021

 

Thank you to all clubs who have sent their Club Dates for the 2021 Season to me.

 

We have not lost any Clubs but there is a few that are struggling and they are having just the odd concert during the season. (but still pay their membership fee)

Time here to gently remind those who have not paid to make plans to do so.

 

Most clubs have had valuable members pass away and our deepest sympathy goes out to them.

 

Dominion President Bill Oram has been in hospital for surgery and was unable to drive for six weeks.  He will begin his official visiting to all clubs very soon so be prepared to host him. He will be notifying clubs as to when he plans to visit.

 

During our Telephone Conference, Clubs voted to take the words “Savage” and “Orphans” from our Rules.  This has been done and approved by the Incorporated Society.  That now means clubs can change their titles if they wish to something more suitable to them - providing the Incorporated Society approves. Those clubs who do not want to change, or change but keep “Savage” or “Orphans” in their title can still do so because ALL CLUBS still belong to the Association of Kindred Clubs of New Zealand Incorporated.

 

Plans are in place for the Executive to hold their meeting in Blenheim on June 19.

 

Would you all please make the correction to the telephone number of Alan Horsfall, President of Manawatu.  It should read 06 329 6853. The 8 and 6 should be reversed.

 

It is great to see that clubs have planned to visit each other and it is to be hoped that this season will be an improvement on the ‘none events’ one that we had last year

 

Best wishes for a successful 2021.

Keep well - keep safe - be happy
