Forthcoming AGM - Management Committee proposal please note

13th March 2019

AGM Proposal to be agreed at AGM on 29thMarch 2019

Members are asked to note the following proposal which will be decided by a vote at the AGM on 29thMarch which will commence at 8.00 p.m.

There are concerns that it is increasingly difficult to attract members to play in friendly games for the club.  These are a source of income for the club and as many have had to be cancelled this year, the club is at risk of losing the fixture in future years and as consequence potential income. 

To help avoid this problem in future years, it is therefore proposed that the cost of annual indoor membership of the club be increased by £10 to each member.  

This increase will allow any club member to play in any indoor friendly match without having to pay any further match fees.  This increase will also include the cost of the meal which is usually included in the match fees for each game.

The decision on whether this increase will occur will be decided at the AGM, therefore if you have views either one way or another, please make sure you attend the AGM to register your vote.

If you are unable to attend, please make your views on this proposal known to the office, but only those present at the AGM will be able to vote.

AGM Date - Friday, March 29th 2019 at 8.00 p.m.

13th March 2019

Please note that this year's club Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday March 29th at 8.00 p.m.

Instead of having an open forum this year where members can raise any concerns or issues they want considered at the AGM, please complete a form which you can pick up from behind the bar, but please ensure that this is given in to the office no later than 12th March.

There wil be a form on the notice board in the entrance hall for membes to put forward any propositions for the AGM which should also be returned to the office by 12 th March.

Please note the amendment to re-arranging League Matches - these must be followed please

7th March 2019

The following was agreed and voted on at the first meeting of the Indoor Members Committee on Monday, September 18th 2017.

Any team that wishes to rearrange a league match will only be allowed to rearrange the scheduled match once.

The office will provide an alternative date, however, due to rink availability this may not always be on the same day and time as the original league match.

If both teams can arrange an alternative which is agreeable, they are welcome to do so as long as it does not change any other matches or pre-booked rinks.

If either team are unable to play on the re-arranged date and time, they will not be allowed to re-arrange a second date and the original defaulting team will forfeit the match and be responsible for the outstanding rink fee.

Points and shots will be awarded to the non defaulting team as set out in the club League rules.

For any triples leagues, it has been decided that a team can field two players should this allow the match to be played without the requirement to re-arrange.  Both teams would play with 8 bowls and the defaulting team forfeit 25% of their total score.

The defaulting team will still be responsible for any shortfall in rink fees.

YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU !!! Players for Friendly Games Urgently needed

4th February 2019

This is a message to all club members, both old and new, we urgently need players to fulfil our club friendly fixtures.

Please look on the club notice boards at the forthcoming matches and sign up if your are available to play.

We are struggling at the moment to get full teams together.  Cancelling games is not something we like to do, as we are likely to lose those fixtures for next season as affected clubs will not want to play us.

So please look and wherever you are free, please sign up to play.
