I know it’s been a while since my last post but the Lions’ year is in full swing not to mention work and family commitments. So what’s been happening?

Simon is inducted by DG Paul as 1st VDG

It’s reached the start of the Lions’ year again and the last couple of weeks have been taken up, at least in part, with club and district handovers. For my club a barbecue was held in our outgoing president Tim’s back garden (and it stayed dry) whereas for district we had a meal at the St John’s Hotel in Solihull.

In just over a year, all things being equal, my fellow 1st Vice District Governors will be making our final preparations to attend Lions Clubs International’s International Convention in Hamburg. While there we will attend four days of training before being sworn in as District Governors for 2013/2014. As part of the lead up to this we attended our second training weekend at St John’s Hotel in Solihull.

And so the days have flown past again and the blog has lain untouched. I keep meaning to write something but I never seem to get around to it. At last I’ve found myself with a couple of hours and the will to write something so here goes.

I really need to be more diligent in writing this blog but I seem to be so busy both with Lions stuff and work. This will be a short post covering what I’ve been doing since our District Convention

It’s almost exactly a year since I started this blog after I was elected as 2nd Vice District Governor for Lions District 105M (The UK Midlands). This weekend just gone I was lucky enough to be elected as 1st Vice District Governor for the 2012-13 year so the journey continues. The scary thing is that in around 1 year from now, all things being equal, I will be the District Governor Elect.

Well, it’s been a while since my last post as I have been in Kos for my youngest daughter’s wedding without any internet access.

On my return last Friday I had to pick up the organisation of my Club’s 34th Charter Anniversary Dinner which took place on Saturday night. Fortunately club members Heather and Lin had done most of the work while I was away and I was just left with creating and printing the menus and sourcing the top table gifts. I also had to finish writing a song for the president and preparing for Autumn Forum on the Sunday. More on both of those later.

Firstly let me apologise for the delay in posting this edition of my blog. I seem to have been busier than ever and a bout of man flu didn’t help. In my last post I told you all about the first training weekend for me and my fellow second Vice District Governors. So what have I been up to since then?

…and what a team it’s going to be.

This past weekend was the first opportunity for this year’s 2nd Vice District Governors to meet each other. This was at a two-day training event organised by the Multiple District at the St John’s Hotel in Solihull. There are 13 districts in MD 105 but two of them, 105A and 105NE do not yet have 2nd VDGs. Three of this year’s team were not able to make this weekend and the rest of us look forward to meeting Mike from 105SE, Marianne from 105SW and John from 105W at an early opportunity. So that left eight of us and our partners

  • Liz and Roy from 105 BN
  • David and Christine from 105BS
  • John and Joan from 105C
  • David and Diana from 105D
  • John and Pam from 105E
  • Paul and Mandy from 105EA
  • Pauric from 105I
  • Me and Christine from 105M

An overview of the geographic location of the districts within the British Isles and Ireland can be found on the MD website

Following the cabinet meeting discussed in my last post, my next meeting was the first of the organising committee for 2012’s Multiple District Convention. Every year Lions hold conventions at three different levels, District, Multiple District and International. These conventions are attended by delegates from clubs. At district level these delegates vote on various resolutions affecting the district and elect the district governor and two vice district governors for the forthcoming year. The multiple district convention is a similar affair but larger and the international convention is larger still and delegates elect the international president and vices.
