Not sure what to make of this.
OK, he's bought into the Club, so maybe an injection of cash.
But I'd like a bit more detail on this guy's "knowledge & sporting expertise" and how he's going to "push the club forward."

I think we will be going solar - the roof of the Ellerslie is south facing.
Lee Hoos is desperate to reduce running costs.

Keith, never mind solar panels; with all these storms, we need a few wind turbines!
