Diary entry

to be held at the Penderel Oaks

Dear Members

Various members have raised with me and the club secretary concerns about certain aspects of the recent AGM. I understand that these were also raised at the AGM itself.

In a nutshell the concerns are:

  • a change to the rules regarding changing the match fee was passed; and
  • a member of the club was removed as a member of the rules in contravention of the rules.
Accordingly, I am of the view that the club membership currently is as it was prior to the AGM.

I am of the view that these two items need to be rectified and I have also received a request from 3 full members of the club that this be done at an EGM.

Also, due to the irregularities concerning the membership voting the rest of the meeting will need to be ratified (hopefully by one resolution).

I have also received notice of two proposed amendments to the club rules which will be put to the EGM:

  • that the club membership is increased to 26; and
  • proposals for captains and vice captains of each of the club teams be given in advance of the AGM to the Chairman and included in the Agenda.
Accordingly, this email is notice that an EGM will be held on 24 February 2003 at Penderel Oaks at 7PM. Hopefully this should take no more than a few minutes.

Matt Ralph who chaired the meeting did not have the rules to hand at the meeting (and probably never having seen them!) so is completely blameless but should be congratulated on (a) chairing the meeting anyway and (b) being a brilliant treasurer as well.

If you are unable to attend this meeting then please email me your views. Also, please can those elected to posts please confirm their acceptance - many thanks.

If you would like to discuss this with me then please call.

With best wishes
