    EDITORIAL: So another year upon us. A pleasant New Year away at Chiclana started off with lovely

    weather and we were able to get out and do some prom walking with of course a compulsory

    bar stop. Unfortunately weather changed after 2 days, got a bit wet and cooler. A number of

    club members were staying at the same hotel so nice to get together at times and have a chat.

    Please keep articles coming for future magazine editions, new contributors always welcome,

    it gets more difficult to to fill the pages with interesting articles. Thanks to all those who con-

    tributed during 2013. Terry Smith

    Input from members for your

    magazine, interesting articles and

    experiences. Important informa-

    tion, funny stories, poetry,

    recipes, restaurant revues, etc.

    These can be emailed to me or left

    Your club is run by volunteers, without them we cannot

    function. Help is required for the following:

    Bar staff, training will be given, see Mike Whittley, Bar Manager.

    Help required by kitchen teams for preparation and serving to

    members, Thursday mornings, no cooking. See Catering Manager

    Brenda Taylor.

    Meeters and greeters to man the front door for just an hour on a

    Thursday club morning, see Maureen Baldwin-Winckle.

    Scrooge at Christmas I am sorry to say that for the second year someone at the Club's Christmas Lunch stole or borrowed one of the Christmas candle holders. I hope that everyone agrees that the tables always look nice for this event and it's a shame that one (or more) person is spoiling it for the rest. If you have a guilty con-science please return them to the club, leave anywhere and someone will find them. Sue Potter



    PRESIDENTS LETTER - FEBRUARY 2014 The Late New Years Party was a great success, so thanks to all of you who helped with the organisation both in the morning and during the evening. What a fantastic turn-out 100 people enjoyed the American Supper and entertainment! In fact, during the evening, I was approached by several people who asked why we dont do this type of evening more often! By now, most of you will have renewed your membership which I hope you will agree, is 30 Euros well spent. We are approaching the AGM on March 13th and if you have any issues, please submit your proposals. As you all know, the club is run by volunteers and help is always appreciated, so if you feel that you can help, please let me know. Every little helps! Doug

    Checking queues at Gibraltar Border Further to last months magazine article, there is also another handy webcam:-

    www.alcaildesmarina.com/webcam which shows the the marina but also the road

    leading to the snake, so if is really busy you can judge how the traffic is moving.

    APPLICATION FOR AN EMERGENCY BUTTON Criteria 80 plus and living alone I made my application through the Geriatric Clinic in Estepona, but I should think any Doctors surgery or medical office would be able to make the application. Age Concern might be able to help. The downside has been a five month wait for the emergency button to be delivered and the box attach-ment fitted to my telephone. There is a 24 hour service for any emergency with an English speaker. The Button is waterproof and is active within a 20 metre radius. It is free of charge. Submitted by Barbara Salisbury

    POSTAL VOTING The Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday 13th rd March 2014. As agreed previously,

    Members who are unable to attend may vote by Postal Vote. (See below)

    May I draw your attention to Article 8 in the Club Statutes?

    Article 8 Subject to the provisions of Article 9, all resolutions proposed at a General Meeting will be

    approved only if a favorable vote is forthcoming from a majority of the Members present or repre-

    sented. Each Member shall be entitled to one vote only. Any Member unable to attend may personally

    apply to the Secretary for a postal vote for the published agenda. It will be issued specifically for that

    Member. Such postal vote will be valid only and exclusively for the meeting specified to which it relates

    and only for the nominated item or items indicated on the Agenda and verified on the postal voting

    form, which shall be submitted to the Secretary not less than 24 hours prior to the time of first call for

    such meeting. The President may direct that a sealed ballot is taken for the vote on any resolution

    which, in his or her opinion, is likely to be particularly contentious.

    You can apply to the Secretary for a postal vote in person, by letter, by telephone, by e-mail (secretary@siberme.com) or on-line via the club web site, (www.siberme.com) any time from now until

    the Sunday before the meeting (March 9th).** Please apply as early as possible to allow our Secretary time to record your request and obviously if you are applying for a Postal Vote by post and would like to receive your voting papers by post then allow sufficient time. Our Secretarys details are:- Joan Thompson,

    ICE Club Secretary, C/o The ICE Club,
