The 2014 AGM was held at the West Midlands Police Sports and Social Centre, Tally Ho!, Pershore Road, Birmingham.
What a great day out!
And it was so good to see old friends from the Midlands again. For many years, the AGM has been held in London and so at the 2013 AGm it was proposed to meet in the Midlands in order to be more accessable to all Centurions.
Of course, we recognise that not everyone can attend due to distance, family committments, etc, and so we had 62 apologies. Due to the Hon Secretary's efforts in collecting email addresses, this has meant that more Centurions than ever are becoming more engaged and are very quick to respond. So good on you!! Do remember to let the Hon. Secretary (Chris Flint) know of any change to your email address.

The Committee recognised the frustration of many Centurions and would-be Centurions but are actively looking at two possible for a track 100 miles. Details to follow shortly.
All walkers who successfully completed 100 miles in 24 hours at the 2013 Isle of Man 100 mile walk were duly elected to the Brotherhood of Centurions. Maureen Moffat from the Isle of Man was (in absentia) awarded the new Brien Scrivens Memorial Trophy for the first female non-Centurion to finish. The Hon Secretary will forward the trophy. Maureen - please return it in time for the next years AGM!
