SAA Risto
SAA Risto Poskiparta, back on the job, brought the meeting to order at 1.05pm.

President Dona Poskiparta
President Dona welcomed everyone. She commented that, with the addition of Hugh Brown and his wife, Henny Udy, both of whom have been approved for membership, we have eight new members, though our goal for this Rotary year was only three. So we are doing very well!

Dona again encouraged TRF contributions, which will qualify us for a new global grant and thus will facilitate our projects. She then circulated the microphone for comments and news.

Priti Kapur
Priti announced that there will be a wine and tapas evening at the Westin Nusa Dusa next Friday, 29 April evening; Priti will send details to PP Wes to circulate to members and encouraged those who are interested to let him know, and he will int turn advise Priti to reserve a table.

Guest Martin Studdert
Martin introduced himself. He is new to Bali, having only been here for several months. His wife is the new Australian consul general in Bali, and they are scheduled to be here for three years.

Guest Hugh Brown
Hugh Brown again introduced himself and expressed his pleasure at being voted into the club. He will arrange with Dona an induction date for himself and Henny.

PP Wes
PP Wes reported that he was at the Dharma Yadna Hospital on Tuesday. There were two cleft palate operations in February, two in March and four in April. The stream of patients has slowed, partly because of the recent string of holidays, but also partly because there are now more organizations offering help with surgeries for cleft lip and palate.

Dona, Karl and he met with Barbara Mackenzie from RCB Seminyak recently to discuss the future of the program perhaps shifting focus to dental procedures following the cleft palate procedures. However it is harder to clarify what is needed for each patient. The Rector Schneider Foundation was happy with the report we submitted on our work to date, and we have submitted a new project proposal if we can secure another donation we may go ahead with a pilot program for dental work to elicit more information on the details of how to schedule dental procedures.

PP Risto Pokiparta
Risto reported that prior to today’s lunch there was a wrap-up meeting regarding our recent tournament. Whilst the funds raised was quite impressive especially in view of how quickly we prepared for this tournament. The money is really needed for new projects. Risto and the rest of the golf committee will meet again next week to talk about preparations for next year’s tournament. We still have a few tee shirts and caps for sale from this year’s tournament and from earlier ones as well. Risto announced that PDG Kuhn is in Bandung for a District meeting.

Sergeant at Arms
After a relaxing lunch it was time for the return of SAA Risto and the weekly raffle.

Tickets for IDR 500,000.- were sold. The prize, a serving dish for sauces and condiments, was won by Risto himself. Risto and past winners owing prizes are reminded not to forget to make their contributions at forthcoming meetings.

Fines of IDR 50,000.- were levied for all and sundry offences.

President Dona thank everyone for joining today and the meeting was adjourned at 2:05PM.
