AGM

The AGM took place on Friday 15th June at the Colliton Club.

The main rule changes that were voted on and passed were,
1. League fees and signing on forms are now due in by the end of September instead of October.
2. In the Ladies League up to two missing players will now be given a score of 30 instead of last seasons 35.
3. In the Ladies Pairs Competition teams will now be able to enter five pairs instead of four.

All League Officers and the committee were voted back on.

We lost one team out of the Open League (Greenstars), and gained one new team for the Ladies League (The Easy Beats).

The composition for the forthcoming season sees 14 teams in Sections A & B, and 13 teams in Section C, D and the Ladies League.
