HEATING

One of the two boilers at Spondon has suffered a catestrophic failure and the model fitted is obsolete, so EMBA are replacing both boilers next Wednesday.

The planned work should be completed during Wednesday daytime, however, if the engineer has any issues there is a chance that the temporary heaters EMBA have hired/purchased may be the only heating working on Wednesday evening. Arrangements are being made to heat the main room during Wednesday daytime so that the room temperature is comfortable. Wearing warm clothing is recommended.

DCBA Competitions

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 4th 2017 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; jimparker@totalise.co.uk) 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.
