There are no matters arising from the previous AGM.

5. President's report

Lindsay Druett presented the President's report. He explained that the year has passed very quickly; after being elected, he was very quickly approached by members asking what the WLUG could do for new users. From there the fixit workshops were born - thanks to Bruce Kingsbury for arranging these events and to Bruce and his family for hosting most of them.

Software Freedom Day was very well organised - thanks to Craig Box, as well as Ian McDonald and Bruce for helping out - around 300 CDs were given away to members of the public. We deliberately didn't run an Installfest - the promotional part was done via SFD, and fixit workshops have mostly taken the place of installfests, although it would be good to again run an installfest in the next year.

We need to thank Orcon for taking over Hoiho's hosting last year, and HP for donated us a server (through work done by Craig and Ian). We have also invested in a good quality promotional banner.

Special thanks were made to Craig for 4 years of dedication to WLUG, and also to Ian and Dave for their support this year, and Perry and Matthias for their help on the committee.

He would like more members on the committee to take on more of a role - for this, more support is needed. It is unfortunate that the election is all a one horse race, with no no other people standing up (and none for the secretary position!)

In closing, Lindsay wished to thanks everyone for being WLUG and especially for everyones help in making SFD happen.
