To All Clubs

The management committee met recently to follow up on a detail passed at the AGM Last July.

The matter of Trophies or money or something as prizes. This was given to the committee to decide, we talked this through but all came to the same answer and that was to continue giving trophies.

We also brought up the matter of presentations, as it was felt by some clubs that July was too late after the leagues etc. had finished.  It was agreed that these would be presented at an earlier date.

The Play offs for the Borough Cup/ Mayors Trophy is on Sunday May 19th at Lynn Sport at 2pm start.  The Mayor will be coming as usual to present these trophies, so we have arranged for him or her, we donít know who the Mayor will be, also to present the ones for, the singles, the two pairs, the fours and the Fenn League (No LGA this year and no Paul Brandon) after the teams have played, presentations should therefore be about 4pm.

Winners and runner ups will be notified of date and time.

Please secretaries pass this information on to your members.

Treasurers Report:

John reported everything was still ok, (Balance sheet circulated), and he suggested that as we still had good reserves, we keep all Comps and Membership at £10, and the nightly fee at Lynn at £1.50 per head.  This put to the meeting and agreed on block.

Management Committee:   Judith Hart and Angela Gee agreed to stand.  Val Gooding, Paul Brandon   to be ask if they would like to stand again, also Paul Morris to be asked as well.


Any other business:

It was suggested that perhaps people would prefer money or something different as prizes instead of trophies for winning comps, leagues etc.  This was discussed at length but no definite result, it was the suggested from the floor, that this be left to the Management Committee to make a ruling on this matter, All agreed to this.
