Many of us have either an inherent or learned aversion to audits and inspections. This may be based on experiences related by those who have endured tax audits conducted by taxing authorities. Contrary to these feelings, the friendly Inspectors, required under the Ippan Hojin Law of the Kobe Club are there to help the organization.
The requirements of the new law governing the functioning of the Kobe Club reorganization, allow for one or more Inspectors based on the Articles of Association (AOA). Three Inspectors were properly elected by the General Assembly (GA) of Members at the last Annual General Meeting (AGM), namely Stefan Christians, Paul Gardner and W. Foran. The law requires at least one Inspector must be present at a Board of Trustees Meeting, with at least one week’s notice, so there is a distinct advantage to having three Inspectors.

The last day of August, under an enameled sky the participants to the Clark Trophy Swimming Gala were starting to flock the pool side sunbeds and the shaded area with the tables under the gazebos.
The brave participants signed in, the volunteers with the stopwatches took their positions at the end of each lane: ready…set…go! The kids started with the free style, breaststroke and backstroke contests. Some of the races were held together (boys and girls of the different age groups).

On Saturday, October 4th, 2014 ninety-seven elegantly dressed members congregated at the Club to celebrate its 145th founding. Following cocktails in the lounge they proceeded to the tastefully decorated ballroom where our president opened the evening with words of welcome, followed by the traditional toast proposed by Mr. Julian Burt. Towards the end of a delectable course dinner Mr. Fritz Leonhardt entertained the gathering with remembrances of past anniversaries.

Why and How 145 Years
Granted the club celebrated 140 years of existence just 5 years ago. However, with the successful major change in status recently completed with the national government, it seems to call for another celebration.
For our several members who are unaware of the significant portion of the history of the foreign residents of Kobe and this club this article is intended to give you some sense of the importance of the Kobe Club as well as its history here in Kobe.
