BLENHEIM 19th, 20TH, 21st JUNE 2020

1st November, 2019

 

Greetings 

                 With just eight months to go until our Conference Weekend.  We know that you’ll end up calling it a great weekend of fun, fellowship and fantastic entertainment not only from our club but from all participating clubs.

 

Early next year watch out for that special form for your club to fill out with your proposed items for the Sunday night visiting clubs concert.  You will have plenty of time to get your thinking caps on over the Christmas Holidays.  Your proposed item should be approximately 6 minutes, but definitely not exceeding 8 minutes from compere’s announcement to the audience applause.

If you require any props or equipment of any type then please let us know well in advance, so we can do our best to accommodate your needs.

 

We have had a number of registrations come in and heard of several Clubs that have booked their accommodation.

 

Please note the date June 19th, 20th, 21st 2020 which is three weeks after Queens Birthday Weekend.  

 

The Venue is the Marlborough Girls College Hall, 21 McLauchlan Street

Blenheim. This is where all meetings, concerts and functions will be held.

 

Being carpeted and central heated this hall along with ample parking for vehicles, buses and motorhomes (No camping overnight, parking only while functions on) will make this a very comfortable place to hold the 43rd Biennial Conference.

 

 

 

The Blenheim Orphans Club wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.

We will resume correspondence after the Festive season when all our clubs swing into action again.

 

Conference Registration Fee $100 per person, REDUCED to $90 if paid before 17th April 2020.

 

SECRETARY: Leon Broadbridge PO Box 4011, Blenheim 7240.

Greetings 

                 With just nine months to go we are pleased to tell you that

the planning and preparation is on target for next year’s big event.

We have had queries from members asking for details, so with that please can you make sure you pass this on to members not just committee.  This information is all posted on the Kindred Club website. 

 

Please note the date June 19th, 20th, 21st 2020 which is three weeks after

the usual Queens Birthday Weekend.  We are hoping more people will be able to attend when it doesn’t clash with a Public Holiday.

43rd BIENNIAL CONFERENCE

BLENHEIM

19,20,21ST JUNE 2020

 

NOTICE of MOTION

 

We would like to move that the words (Savage and Orphans) be removed from the

Association of Kindred Clubs of NZ Inc. title, and they be replaced with the following

words. (Music, Song and Story)

 

REASON

For many years now the Savage and Orphan words have come up for discussion and they

do not convey to the public who we are or what we do.  Add to this that many of the clubs

have added other names to their club name in order to attract new members.  With this

Motion we are not advocating that clubs need to change their name, but they can if they

so desire.  The name change would also mean that any club that decides to alter or change

“their name” would be able to do so within the rules of the Association.
