The Association has had a number of changes in its Officials this year bought about by the resignation of our Secretary Bruce Greenway. Bruce has held the position since 1992 and we would like to thank him for his many years of service.
We also welcome our new President Cy Thorne for 2017 who has taken over from Rod Clarke. Cy continues to be our Patronage Secretary, a position which he has held for a number of years. Unfortunately the Association is still without an Editor for our News Letter and would welcome any one that would like to take on this position.
The Association has seen a drop in members in recent years and the Committee is trying to address this by putting on some new events and producing a Hand Book.
In October 2016 the MBA held its first Specialist and Rare Open Show and received more entries than any other Area Specialist and Rare Show in the country. It is hoped that we can build on that success this year.
