» Past Committees:

At the 1993 A.G.M. members were treated with a video made by the committee entitled 'Hopepolis' which was intended as a take-off of 'Logopolis'. Like 'Blake's 7 Almost' the bloopers were shown and were twice as long as the story. Unfortunately after the 1993 A.G.M.
Christian Brother's College became unavailable, which left the incoming committee the arduous task of finding a new venue at short notice. A number of venues were considered, and finally the decision was made to return to Adelaide High School, which promised the Club long term availability.
In December 1993, the Club held its inaugural social cricket match at Botanic Park, which proved to be a great success and a lot of fun for everyone involved. The event was repeated in December 1994, and has now permanently become the Club's final event for the year.
The January 1994 meeting proved to be a dark day for the Club with the theft of the Club's cash box, which held all the takings for the meeting, a sum in the realms of $350.00. Fortunately the Club's stable financial situation meant that it did not endanger the Club's existence as it may have done during some periods in the Club's history. The sympathetic response by members was overwhelming, including a generous donation by one member.
1994 also saw the Club's replica Dalek return to a meeting for the first time in almost ten years. A while after this the Dalek was exterminated forever. 'Dimensions in Time' and '30 years In the TARDIS', the first Doctor Who material to be produced since 1989, was screened at a meeting with mixed reactions from members.
1995 was saw the club look back over the last 15 years of its existance. We held a life be in it activity at Clarence Park Community Centre (Corner East & Canterbury Tces, Black Forest) on Sunday 16th of July 1995 from 12 noon to 5pm, where there were sessions of role playing, drinks, games, BBQ, door prizes, raffles. We had Dr. Who computer games, and other stands for merchandise. A lot of the former members of the club turned up to see what was going on, and there was a large attendance.
Unfortunately, someone lost the list of attendees, and we were unable to follow up with them.

after a small time a way the great Jamie Stidiford came back to rule us all, as he is still doing to this very day. harrah harrah.

also is Blake the longerst serving committee member?

Sureley "Blake" is just a honorary title, passed down through the generations, from Father to Son? This could not be the same person who has been a committee member for vertually 9 consecutive years?

He is the Old Tom Parr of the club. Of course, future historians will dispute this, and claim we have muddled his records with that of his grandfather.
