The rules of our competitions are published on the DCBA website and details of our calendar and competitions (Sept-Aug) are published in our members hand book. This year we emailed the document to as many members that we could and it is also available via this website. Each year competitions are discussed at our AGM and then the competitions subcommittee meet in June/July to finalise the new calendar and agree any competition changes, the calendar/members hand book is then approved at the following main committee meeting. If any members have any comments or suggestions please try and attend the AGM on May 3rd 2018 and then members attending can agree or make comment. Should you have comments or suggestions and are unable to attend the AGM please pass them to the DCBA secretary (Jim Parker; Mob 07980716894; firstname.lastname@example.org) or your Club’s DCBA Representative and they can be raised at the AGM on your behalf. Please try and avoid making suggestions too close to an event as often it is too late to make changes and may only increase the stress levels of the event organisers. Your input will be appreciated and making it at the right time means we can evaluate your suggestion and hopefully improve our competitions for the benefit of members.
