OBA-DAVG Chapter

Dear Ajeets of Davangere Chapter,

I compliment you on the goal and execution clarity you have achieved. I am sure the meet will be a great success. Do we send the cheque to be paid to the account mentioned or in some other name?

For a place with small population of Ajeets it is never easy to organise a meeting of such magnitude, not withstanding possibility of cost of organising being low. It is for all of us, those who believe in the OBA movement, to support the effort with registering early. Without the support of the fraternity financially I am afraid the movement will fizzle out. It is now our duty to ensure that the Ajeets of Davangere Chapter do not spend thier personal money to organise a meet so that all of us could meet our friends and renew our bond with the school. Should we fail in ensuring this I fear there may not be takers for organising future meets.

I call upon the fraternity to make depositing of registration fees in advance yearly feature, irrespective of whether you intend to attend or not. This, I feel, will boost the confidence of the organisers to concentrate on organising the event not keep looking over the shoulders as to where the money is going to come from till the last moment. I am sure with funds available the organisers can easily plan on long term basis, cut costs and save a tidy amount, which can be used to build their chapter or make a contribution to the Ajeet Trust as conducting chapter decides...

With Warm Regards
