20 January 2016

Minutes of the NCBA Committee meeting held on 20th January 2016

  1. Apologies for absence.

    Apologies for absence had been received from Keith Rodgers, Lloyd Eagling, and Toni Smith.

  2. Approval of the minutes of the last meeting. 

    These were not confirmed, as it was felt that the exact profit made from the Green Point event should be included. It was believed this was about £250 but the treasurer was going to find out the exact amount.

  3. Matters arising.

    There were no matters arising.

  4. Chairman Report: John Auld. 

    John made reference to the Executive summary that all the committee had received regarding the survey. He felt that it was more practical to give committee members responsibilities rather than creating sub groups. Thus the events secretary could look at the suggestions a-h on page 2 and report back to the group.  John would consider revamping the website and would work with Keith Spencer on this. Toni Smith would be asked to consider communications and publicity initiatives

    The Chair also discussed the recent issues regarding the scoring of the mixed pairs and asked the TD if these were now resolved.  Tim felt he had learnt from the exercise and that he had resolved the matter.

  5. Received correspondence. 

    The form from the EBU on the amount taken for the pay to play for the coming year was discussed.   The secretary was asked by the committee to complete the form leaving the amount the same, as the treasurer felt there was no need to increase the county component.

  6. County Captains Report: Keith Rodgers. 

    Keith had sent an email to all the committee.  In summary he stated that there had been 4 matches so far:

    1. At home against Gloucester, the 1st team lost 7-13, the 2nd team won 17-3 and the 3rd team lost 4-16;
    2. Away at Worcestershire, 1st team lost 9-11, 2nd team lost 1-19 and 3rd team lost 4-16;
    3. At home against Oxford, 1st team won 20-0,  2nd team won 12-8 and 3rd team did not play full game.  Because a team of 4 game was played the final score is a win to Oxford of 10-6;
    4. Away at Derby, the 1st team lost 5-15, the 2nd team won 14-6 and the 3rd team lost 6-14.


  7. Teams of Four and Teams of Eight Leagues: Chris Clark. 

    Chris reported that the teams of eight competition was running smoothly, and in division 1 Nottingham Gambit had a clear lead over West Bridgford A. In  division 2 Nottingham Alderclarke were leading. In Division 3 a new team from Woodborough had joined and, at the moment, East Bridgford and Woodborough White were in the lead.

    Chris expressed concerns about the teams of four league.  The viability of this league was discussed and the comments made about it from the survey were mentioned.  The committee left the discussion open until the end of the season.

  8. Treasurer’s Report: Ian Dovey. 

    The treasurer did not give any figures but said that the Wednesday games were showing a profit.  However, he had not done the job for a full year, so he was unsure of what payments would need to made later in the year.

  9. Format of  AGM: Clare Batten. 

    Clare suggested that the format be changed as the AGM last year was not quorate.  A bridge drive to follow the AGM was suggested.  It was also suggested that we reduce the number needed for the AGM to be quorate, and also we put more interesting items for people to discuss.  However in the end it was agreed to have it on a Wednesday night before a drive with a reduced number of boards.  The new date of the AGM is 11th May.  The treasurer confirmed that he thought he could get the accounts done for this date.

  10. Events Secretary’s Report: Graham Brindley.

    The number of entries for the mixed pairs was 18.  The number of teams for the knock out teams was 9.  It was difficult to get people to enter teams events.

  11. Midlands Working Party Report. 

    Graham had been unable to attend the last two meetings due to a holiday and a funeral.  Clare had gone in his place, which was useful as she had been asked to help organise the Regional Improvers competition.  More information would follow but there would be a simultaneous competition held at three venues, Spondon, Solihull and possibly Cheltenham.  People from Nottingham would be encouraged to enter the event at Spondon.

  12.  Date of next meeting was set for 30th March.
