The club notice board has had some new notices posted:
a. EBU Q & A paper on pay to play scheme.b. Application to join the clubs' team of 8 for the Gazette trophy which we won last year.
On the proposal to accept the Village Club offer as outlined 14 were in favour and 28 against. The proposal that we move without there being disabled access was rejected unanimously. On the proposal that if we could have exclusive use 24/7 of the upstairs room with disabled access and facilities 38 members were in favour and 4 against.
The main club has now gone ahead with refurbishment. Once this is done then we will be asking members what we should do.
To Peter McWhirter on winning The Chairman's Trophy for 2008
This trophy is awarded to the highest % achieved by the chairman's partner in the year. It is open to all members and the chairman, Ron Steedman, is now looking for partners both on Friday and Wednesday for the coming year.
Final Result of the poll of members was:
It was agreed at the AGM that all members would be further balloted with a straightforward "Yes" or "No" vote in mid-August when their subscriptions become due. A show of hands of members at the AGM resulted in 16 votes against duplimated boards and 31 in favour.
