Welcome to another edition of Club Watch. Accused of being too harsh on the clubs, were pleased to tell you that we have employed the services of a private investigator who calls himself Verasi T. who also has a faithful canine companion called Candor. Together they've managed to put together an extensive report on club activities this past year. As in each edition we have two indexes (out of 10 each) called the VI (visibility index) and the GPI (general performance index). While the VI tells us how public the club has been, the GPI is the true measure of the value of a club. Also the list of moderators are present in our school diary.
