  • Gary announced that he attended the Training seminar with Ari where RCBND donated IDR 25 million. Well done with RCBND receiving good promotion with banners etc on display.
  • Ian has accepted the Chair of Club Services Committee (the key word is Committee, not just one person so members are encouraged to lend their support to Ian as he takes on this role). Thanks Ian… :-)
  • A Board meeting was held prior to today’s luncheon at which it was decided to support Bali Appropriate Technologies in constructing an extension to an existing water distribution system in the village of Ancut (Karangasem). Total cost of the project is IDR 64,700,000.- RCBND’s contribution will be IDR 4,700,000.- Other contributors include the village itself, Habitat for Humanity, RC of Whitefish Montana and BATI.
  • As well at the Board meeting it was decided to cancel the 3 October weekly luncheon due to security concerns during the APEC CEO meeting.

President Gary then passed the microphone around the table for comments and updates.

Bipan Kapur
Bipan elaborated on several large events that will keep the Nusa Dua area very, very busy in the coming weeks and months.

  • Finals of the Miss World will now be held on Bali.
  • APEC. This is not just one meeting, but rather a series including preliminary meetings leading up to it.
  • New Tol Road to be inaugurated.
  • WTO in December with 10-15,000 delegates (much larger number wise than APEC).
  • Bali Democracy Forum.

Ian Cameron
Ian confirmed he will accept and do his best on Club Services.

PP Risto Poskiparta
