Firstly, let me apologise that there was no submission last year, other than Peter Baines' short sharp note at the last minute.  I did however draft the letter and dispatched it to Pete for onward transmission but, unfortunately, the Royal Mail failed to redirect it to his new address.  That's his story and we're both sticking to it.  Despite this hiccup the AGM went ahead as planned with some 30 plus in attendance - quite an achievement with so little confirmation of the event.  To bring everyone up to date, I am enclosing a copy of last year's correspondence and am also enclosing a follow-up from Ian Madelin which will be of interest to anyone in a position to help with the Jever history request.

The AGM this year (99) will be held on the 9th Jan with the standard format.  The 'Three Compasses' doors will open at 1830 hrs for our private function, and will close at closing-time, 2300 his.  The late night rush for the last train home really makes an extension to 2359 hrs unusable and has been discarded.  Pub lunch type food is the norm but beware the Limpopo which in common with most of us this year has been affected/muddied by the dreaded El Nino.  Kitty will be 10 with 5 for the Ladies and individuals paying separately for their food.  Contacts remains as follows:

Ken Goodwin: Auldcroft, Plud Street, Wedmore, Somerset, BS28 4BE. Tel: 01934 712228

Jeff Jeffrey: (Work) FT Spt 2, TGDA, HQ PTC, RAF Innsworth, Gloucester, GL3 1EZ.
                 Tel: 01452 712612 Ext 5372 (Until Aug 99)
                 (Home) 2 Hawkes End, Brampton, Huntingdon, Cambs. PE18 8TW.
                 Tel: 01480 454788

This year (98), the award of the 'Golden Share' went to Dicky Barraclough in recognition of the fact that his beaming face appeared on the first photo from the Jever Steam and he has attended regularly ever since.

My regrets that we were unable to get off the ground with the 'JSL Weekend".  Two reasons basically - the support was a little low and the hotel that I had in mind for accommodation wasn't completed as soon as I had hoped!  Unfortunately, personal circumstances will prevent me having another crack in 1999, but I am prepared to make it a 'Millennium Meet in May/June of 00.  I hope to be able to come to you with more details in the near future.  Watch this space!

As an additional enclosure, I am at long last I am able to include an updated Basket List and, as usual, will be grateful for any corrections.

Finally, may I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hope to see you at "Steaming Time" - 1830 his.  For those not able to make it this year (99), next year (00) will be on 8th Jan, same place, same time; look forward to seeing you there.
