2. Minutes of the EGM held on 18th May 2014. These were approved by the meeting.  Proposed by Lloyd Eagling and seconded by Irene Auld.

3. Chairman’s report John thanked everyone for coming. He commented on new members of the committee having a positive impact. Numbers attending events had moderately improved.  There was a need to communicate with all members as the association was nothing without its members. We needed to encourage more young people to play.  He remarked on Joan and David Burgess both receiving the Dimmie Fleming awards.  The first married couple to do so.

4. County Captains report Keith Rodgers Keith commented on the second team’s performance. 

5. Event Winners and presentation of prizes. Chris Clark/ John Auld.

The winners of the teams of four completion was Parsons pack.  The winners of the knock out teams of four was yet to be decided.  Other prizes winners for the year had already received their prizes at the event they had won.

 

6. Treasurer’s Report and Submission of Accounts to 31st March 2015.

Ian thanked Martin Mellor for compiling the statement.  Graham Brindley for managing the NCBA competition entries and Irene Auld for her patience and assistance in responding to his questions regarding the accounts.  The statement reveals a profit of £850.  The turnaround from last year was due to:

Increase in P2P revenue

Higher attendance at Wednesday night drives

Increased Green point income

Reduced expenditure on EBU events

The objective of NCBA is not to make money – but neither should it operate at a loss.  The accounts justify the committee decision not to change the P2P for this year.

Accounts were approved by the meeting.

7. Pay to Play Current rate and comparison table with other counties enclosed. Clare Batten went through the components of this and stated that she would like to have a nominal sum for direct members who wished to be members of NCBA this was purely so they could be tracked.  This was referred back to the committee for discussion.

8. Election of Officers and Committee:  The following ordinary members of the committee are standing down are Lloyd Eagling, Kyra Wills.

9.  Teams of Eight competition and its use as a Garden Cities qualifier.  Toni Smith and  Gordon Fullerton had both asked that this topic be discussed at the AGM.  The committee is undecided as to how to proceed.  The problem has arisen as a result of the committee becoming aware that a competition with the concept of squads ( a squad is a group of NCBA members who play for a team of eight who may not all belong to the same club) is not acceptable as a Garden cities qualifier by the EBU.  There is currently one squad playing in the competition but some members of the committee felt that we should keep this element in the competition to encourage more people to play.  John Auld and Chris Clark would like to see the first division being kept as a club event only.  It was pointed out that this may not satisfy the EBU tournament committee as a suitable way of providing a garden cities qualifier and would need approval.  Gordon Fullerton put the case for the squads to remain and not use the competition as a garden cities qualifier.  Toni Smith put the case for making it a club event.

The meeting ended with a date being fixed for the next committee meeting as 1st June.
