    This is a PermaThread™, maintained by Officers of Friends of Mudcat and Joe Offer. Feel free to post to this thread, but be aware that all messages in this thread are subject to deletion and editing.


UK Friends of The Mudcat

There has been a recent change of Officials. Gareth Williams has stepped down as Treasurer. John Routledge has taken over his duties, and John "Giok" MacKenzie has been co-opted onto the Committee.

Pending elections, money will continue to be transferred via Bill Sables to Max on a quarterly basis. The mechanics of this are being looked at to see if there is a more direct method of transfer.These arrangements will remain in place pending election of new Officials which we hope will be held by Easter 2007

In the absence of a 3D meeting we need a membership list for voting purposes. Persons wishing to become members should PM their name address and email address to John "Giok" MacKenzie and they will be added to the membership list. Additionally nominations are required for positions as FoM Officials ie Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer together with two auditors.

Members can nominate one person, for each of the vacant positions, including themselves, no seconder is necessary Applications and nominations should be received before March 1st 2007 to enable elections to take place quickly.


A Financial Audit would be carried out before handover to new officials and we hope that the existing auditors would carry this out.

A Permathread dedicated to FoM will be created which will be used to inform members of events and fund-raising activities, and any amounts raised at the various UK MudMeets, the thread will be edited to focus on current matters, and reflect the core of FoM activity.

*Member Registration
*The only qualification required is an interest in supporting Mudcat and residing in the UK. No membership fee is required. We anticipate membership of less than 100 rather than several hundreds The biggest input members will have is producing ideas for fund- raising activities and carrying them out.
Persons wishing to become members should PM their name address and email address to John"Giok"MacKenzie and they will be added to the membership, nominations for office bearers and auditors should also be made at this time. Applications and nominations should be received before March 1st 2007 to enable early elections to take place.

For those of you who may be wondering about UK FoM let me give you a brief history.
It was started at a great Mudgathering in Stony Stratford in 2002, when it was decided to run a raffle and donate the proceeds to Max as a means of helping towards the cost of running this site.
We elected a few office bearers and opened a bank account and one or two people set up standing orders with their banks, to pay a small monthly amount to FoM. At almost every Mudgathering since then, including the Euro gatherings, people have donated items as raffle prizes, and the monies raised have found their way to Max to show our appreciation of the Mudcat Cafe.
Quite a lot of money has been raised, and has gone to Max, exact figures will be given when we do our audit, but I know it's in excess of £1000.
So that's roughly what it's all about, and so many people have helped in different ways, and in the end it's all for our benefit. People like Hilary [MGAS], Jane [Mrs Duck] and Kate [Fibula Mattock] have all run Mudgathers and raffles to help the cause, there are others too, but I can't remember them all, but a big thanks is due to those who do these things for no return.
So please register as a member, and donate the raffle prizes, and buy the raffle tickets too, it will give you a warm glow, honest!
Just your name, home address, and e-mail address is all we require.
If you want to volunteer as an office bearer,{we only have them as we are collecting money and we need to keep accounts}, then please do. Or nominate someone, with their permission, to help run things, please do so.
It's all in a good cause folkies!!!
Giok

On the financial side I now have all the Bank Statements etc since FoM was set up in 2002 and will produce a package for audit before the end of the month.This Audit will enable the new office bearers to start with a clean sheet so to speak.The amount sent by FoM to date is in excess of £2500.

Future Bank Statements will be sent direct and I will therefore be able to deal with specific enquiries, via PM, regarding individual transactions. This will normally be possible by return.

Happy Fundraising to All

Right John send us yer details and welcome to you.
I have had a wee note from Andy [Mudguard] in Munich, reminding me that he was one of the original members of UK FoM when it was formed at Stoney Stratford. So if nobody else objects, I'd like to extend the invitation to our friends in Europe to join us. After all they have contributed at various Euro gatherings towards Mudcat funds, and that's what we are all about.
So Andy, Wilfried, Suzanne, Bente, etc etc. Please feel free to join us.

Micca Patterson

as they're all fab Catters & willing & able!!

At the risk of seeming a bit thick:
Are there any other positions apart from Treasurer, Secretary & Membership/Returning Officer etc. needing to be filled? Or is it just these positions we're talking about?

And I suggest the "UK Friends of Mudcat" rename themselves the "UK and EU Friends of Mudcat" or even the "EU Friends of Mudcat".

Count me in - see PM.

I have auditing experience, if that is of any use.

Way back in 2002, after the foundation meeting, I drafted a Constitution for the UKFoM, sent it to Gareth and heard no more. Did anything ever come of it?

I've not been the most active of Mudcatters lately, having been incapacitated to a greater or lesser extent for most of the past couple of years with a serially broken arm. Now this has been fixed (again), barring another RTA you may well see more of me. You have been warned!

Almost there MMario :0)

As the original idea of FoM was to enable small non US$ donations to be transmitted to the US without huge transfer costs how about
"Non US$ Friends of Mudcat" *smile*

Looks like we have come full circle back to FoM as a suitable title.

Lanfranc you may or may not be delighted to hear that the constitution currently used by FoM is probably the one you drafted and your work was not in vain.

Right I now have 24 definite members with a couple more remaining to be confirmed.
What has been suggested is that we retain the status quo for now, with the following office bearers, as we are almost starting again with a clean slate due to the hiatus which ensued after our initial conception.

Chairman    John Giok MacKenzie
Secretary   Micca Patterson
Treasurer   John Routledge
Auditor 1   Alan Francis
Auditor 2   Volunteer required

So all those in favour say aye, any against please suggest an alternative!

Our sole raison d'etre is to raise money to help fund the costs of running this site, by means of raffles and donations.
We are not going to get bogged down in procedures and petty bureaucracy. Members will not be required to attend meetings cyber or otherwise, we're all just here to help Mudcat, by helping to run Mudgathers and raffles etc. Votes will be sought only to replace office holders or agree means of raising cash.
Any monies are sent to the treasurer, he banks it, and on a quarterly basis writes a cheque to Bill Sables who does business with the US, and he then sends the equivalent dollar amount to Dick Greenhaus, who is one of Max's co conspirators. That way it gets there at no added cost to FoM East!
So anyone thinking of volunteering as an auditor, it's not a hard job, and the sums involved aren't too difficult.
So any thoughts nominations volunteers, please let any of the office bearers know your ideas.
Giok

BTW, did I tell you there is a place in Kiel where you can buy your Branston's pickle, Walker's crisps and cans of Strongbow? The owner is German but has lived in the UK and then discovered a niche market importing real British produce. Makes good sandwiches as well!

As far as I'm concerned, Kiel is the best place for Branston pickle, preferably in the canal. But, I digress, if it's not likely to frighten the horses or offend ladies of a nervous disposition I would like to become a member of FoM (UK). May I ask if donations should be sent in EST, GMT or CET, after all, timing is everything. Not sure what I can do practically, but will try thinking for a change.

As far as elctions are concerned, given my living quarters, I shall remain a "floating voter".

PM on it's way Giok.

Donations can be paid into a bank account specifically set up for that purpose via direct debit, bank transfer or cheque.

The account name is "FRIENDS OF THE MUDCAT" and full details will be sent following a PM request to John(Giok)Mackenzie or Micca or John Routledge.

It would be very helpful if anyone who makes a donation would PM me with details of the payment.

For those interested in matters financial I will be providing an end of year statement during the first couple of weeks of January 2008.

Mudcat will be receiving an early Christmas present as a cheque for £300 is currently on its way.

As at 31st October 2006 the audited accounts of Friends of The Mudcat showed a balance of £263.00

Since that date 3 cheques totaling £850.00 have been sent to Mudcat and these amounts withdrawn from FOTM Bank account. A further cheque for £250.00 is being sent today making a total of £1,100.00 since 31 Oct 2006. This amount does not include amounts paid by Paypal or other means of transfer.

A Big thank you to all involved in the activities which produced these funds. It is worth remembering that the transfer of money via FOTM to Mudcat HQ involves no currency commissions or buy/sell spreads.

The notional FOTM Bank balance as at 31st December 2007 is £96.40p

The statement given in my post of 3rd Jan is an interim statement pending the financial audit which will be carried out following the end of this year.

Suzanne - The FOM Bank account was essentially set up to transfer £UK(FOM) to $(Mudcat) without incurring the often high currency changing charges.It operates in the UK only and payments must be made in £sterling and credit cards cannot be used.

FOM Bank Sort code and account no. are PM'd individually to potential donors on request.

Payments in other currencies can of course be made direct to Mudcat via Paypal and other international payment agencies.

UK FoM are in the position of being able to send a cheque for a further £500 to Bill Sables. He will do the necessary to get it to Max

Last month an extra £200 was received above "normal" although this basically came from only three donors.

This means that we will have sent £2200 by this means, since the beginning of 2007.

Thanks to all UK Mudcatters, including those who may have sent money direct via Paypal, as I have done myself occasionally.

As it is nearing the festival season you might want to be noticed as a mudcatter, it's a good way to meet and start a conversation, so you will need a Mudcat Tee Shirt. I still have a few in most sizes in either blue or red. Just PM me. They are imported from the USA via Dick Greenhaus and sell for £15 each including postage and all profits go to Mudcat

Ah yes here is the lare. Let me take a moment to thank you all for all you do. As bradfordian just mentioned, I recently mentioned you in one of the somewhat-secret upgrade-and-what-not threads as having been the reason in 2010 that I didn't have to pony up any money. Between the ads and the amazon sales we (used to) come up just a bit short on the yearly expenses. Thanks to your tenacious and continuous support, we broke about even this year. Which was the goal. We're hatching a bit of a different goal for 2011, late I know, but we might be able to do some great things this year. Stay tuned for more on that business. Time is now the important comodity on account that I think we are finally figuring out the money part.

Again, Thanks a million, I really appreciate the community strength you all have and show every day both here on mudcat and in the UK. You all let me know what I can do for you, I believe I owe you all a favor or two (or 600).
