1. Election of Officials
The first item on the agenda was the
Election of Officials and the following people were nominated / elected:-
Mike Turner and Billy Williams could not make the meeting tonight and sent apologies, but also asked to be nominated for the Committee again and were duly elected. Chris Parry was also not present but was nominated, seconded and elected by those present.
2. Statement of Accounts
The Treasurer presented the Statement of Accounts for 2010-11 and copies were made available for those present. Gordon Vickers proposed that the Accounts were a true record of the league's finances and they be accepted, this was seconded by Brian Welch and carried unanimously by all present.
3. Any Other Business
No formal written proposals were received before the deadline of 29th August, so the Chairman gave a quick summary of recent news to the meeting.
First, the Winter League will start on
Wednesday, 19th October 2011, and there are 11 confirmed entrants to the league.
They are Bawn Lodge, Egerton Arms, Home Guard Club, Royal Oak,
St. Theresa's Club, St. Werburgh's Club, Spital Vaults, The Talbot,
Union Vaults, United Services Club and Ye Olde Cottage.
The Lock Vaults team have moved their table to the Home Guard Club and will
compete from there from now on, and Ye Olde Cottage will be entering for the
first time and we welcome them into the League. The Red Lion
Handbridge have advised the Chairman that they will not be entering a team into
the League at present, and entries have not been received from the City Arms
Saltney or Blacon Sports & Social for the forthcoming season.
Mike Turner asked the Chairman to raise
the matter of tables being closed at 3pm on the day of a final, as it was felt
there were instances where the table had not been covered at 3pm.
The general feeling was that anyone involved in a final should not have any
practice after 3pm on the day of a final, but "locals" could not be stopped from
playing in their own pubs if the landlord wished to allow this.
Margaret Walker asked if it would help if the cut-off time was moved to 5pm, but
most present felt 3pm was the traditional time and this should be adhered to.
Some general discussion about bagatelle continued until 8.50pm. when, there being no other business, the Chairman thanked everyone for attending and closed the meeting.
