The ABCSWS Annual General Meeting

The ABCSWS Annual General Meeting

The Association’s Annual General Meeting will be held on ‘sometime in January 2020’ at the usual place with entrance times between
1800 and the start of the meeting at 1830.

Light refreshments will be provided.

If the membership fee is not paid prior to the date of the AGM, membership shall be considered to have elapsed and attendance at the AGM will not be permitted.

The AGM is the forum for deep debate and discussions within the Association.

You are therefore encouraged to come with proposals and suggestions for events which the Association could hold throughout the year. We may not be able to accommodate them all but please don’t be shy about submitting your thoughts and ideas.

It would be interesting for the Committee to get feed-back from the membership regarding the Association as a whole so this is the time for praise and complaints to be brought out.

This is your Association and the Committee is the caretaker but you are the owners so come and make your voice heard!

Please arrive promptly at this time to facilitate entry. The Quiz starts at 1845 sharp and sandwiches will be served from 1800.

As for previous Quiz Nights, this will be a fun competition for members of the Association and guests based on an enhanced pub quiz format. The intention is that this should be a fun evening with a “Happy Hour” atmosphere with sandwiches (included in entrance fee) and cash only bar. The winning table is permitted to boast of their achievement!


In order that we do not become over-subscribed, registration is initially restricted to a member plus maximum two guests. First come, first served. If there are spaces left closer to the event we will open up for more guests.


The final attendance list will close at 1500hrs on Monday 16th March. It is strongly recommended to register as soon as possible since this event is very popular and there is a limit on how many people can be accommodated.


There will be a small charge to be paid at the door on arrival. Cash or SWISH only. 100kr per person. The correct amount of payment will be much appreciated if paying cash.


Should you wish to attend, check your email for instructions on how to apply.


Ensure that you have proper personal identification with you on arrival.


Thank you and we hope that you can attend.
