Mr. C. B. F. Jones became Hon Secretary/Treasurer.
Messrs. The Committee of Management included J. H. Wilkinson, E. A. Hinkson, E. E. Thome and Lieut Col H. I. F. Yates were duly elected to the Committee of Management.


Second Resolution

The second resolution was pertinent to membership fees when it was decided upon that for the first year ending September 30th, 1925, fees would be a fixed amount of $12.00 for gentlemen and ladies and their children would be free.


Approval also came for "any gentleman member be entitled to allow the lady members of his family residing under his roof to enjoy the privileges of the club without any additional fee."
