8:Self Selection of the WINTER WORKING GROUP.

(Members of the working group have been entitled to claim travel expenses to attend the meetings. A shortage of funds will make it impractical to pay everyone’s travel expenses for the following year!)


a]We amend the constitution concerning the winter working group to read as follows:

The number of people on the camps working group shall not be less than 9 and not more than 15. proposed by Jon seconded by Mshel

(At the winter working group meeting of September 2, the closest we got to concensus was number 23. Currently the number is 29) A selection process should be adopted and included in the constitution, in the event that more than 15 members apply. A suggestion for that process is a Council style election.

(A ‘standby list’ would be formed from those unselected. Candidates from the list may replace any Winter Working Group member who cannot attend.)

b] Anyone proved to be enabling the supply of alcohol or drugs to anyone under the age of 18 attending the camps will be immediately removed from the site. Proposed by Toni seconded by ?

c] We create an open winter Heartshare group to which all members are invited. Meetings could be held two/ three times a winter to celebrate, share and focus our philosophical, spiritual and ethical intentions. it shall have two co ordinators, and take place at a different venue and date to that of the wwg meeting. whenever the heartshare reaches consencus on any matter it would be communicated to the wwg and the next AGM. Anyone willing to hold the energy for the heartshare, will be asked to arrange a date and place of the inaugeral heartshare before the end of this AGM. Proposed by Jon seconded by M’shel.

d] The winter working group meetings need only be attended By those who are willing to focus specific areas of Rainbow Circle camps and events. Those areas being:

Camp coordination, Welcome & security, Kitchen & Catering, Maintenance of properties, Sitecrew, Finance, Ritual and celebration, Website, Newsletter? And publicity, networking: and Scouting.
