Latest news from the Executive Committee February 2015

The league have decided that only the Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Secretary of clubs are allowed to attend League meetings. However, we had a cunning plan, and now everyone on the Committee who is not the Chairman is now Vice Chairman!

There has been minor but substantial damage to the scorebox – particularly the door. Quite how something can be both minor and substantial is a bit of a mystery – but then it was reported by Caddy.

The 200 Club is in dire need of additional members – please spread the word.

The Pub Six A Side has been renamed the Village Six A Side. There have been some other changes, notably that each team can have one signed on player. Not sure if this is an attempt to improve the standard or to just get additional players up there on the day.

We are investigating the possibility of holding a “Ball” at New Horwich Park (something quite alien to our fielders). We are also looking to hold the 2013 and 2014 senior presentations at some point during the forthcoming season.

We are looking at procuring a club honours board.

There was no news on the golf day or the festival.

The David Beeley memorial match will take place on Saturday 11th April. IF, as expected, conditions are not fit, an alternative will take place at the Bowling Club.

Coffee Mornings have been arranged for Saturday 26th September and Saturday 5th December.

The sponsored walk raised in excess of £600 and there were contributions at the funeral of Ernie Dyer in excess of £300. However, funds are at a very low level and more fundraising is required.

News from the league, and the WBCC proposal to scrap the provision of teas (lets not go there) was soundly defeated after having been questioned by League Management! Also defeated was the motion to bring forward start times to 12.30.

The start dates for the juniors have been released, and sensibly the Under 17s will start at the end of April for 2 weeks, and there will then be a gap to allow them to get on with their exams.
