CLUB EGM & AGM 19:30pm 13th NOVEMBER

We are already nearing the Club AGM, how did that arrive so soon.:-

This year we have and important EGM “aperitif” before the AGM itself. For several years now a lot of people have been working hard at bringing the Clubs Constitution up to date, to make it more relevant to the current era in the clubs history, and to comply with current standards. Started in earnest by Lewis Pickin and Gareth Morgan about 4 years ago, the Indoor and Outdoor Committees have been regularly involved with input of amendments and considerations that have followed on ever since. Even in this last 12 months Trevor Hoy has issued 10 such “versions”.

We have now reached the agreed final form that will be put to you on the 13th November

Obviously in deference to all this hard work put in by your Section and Club representatives, I would strongly request your attendance as there is a minimum number of attendees required to form a voting quorum.

As regards the AGM that follows on directly, there will be the usual Reports from the Clubs Officers, presumably with the “highlight” of Mr Boushers report on the …ahem… “Facilities”, you will also learn of the Clubs improved finances, some plans in hand, and doubtless more plans for the future.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Mike Lambert, Chairman Egham BC

LOCKERS

Do you require locker? If so, please put your requests in an envelope marked “FAO Andy Beaumont – Lockers” and place it in the left hand green post box near the desk.

There is a locker survey being carried out in the next few months, which will hopefully free up some more lockers. Can you also check that you have paid your locker fees of £4? If you know anyone who no longer uses their locker, please inform Andy, and try and get the key(s) returned so the locker can come back into circulation. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

UNWANTED BOWLS

If you have, or know anyone who has unwanted bowls we are looking for donations for the club, this helps with new members and old members who want to try a different size or weight. All donations will be gratefully received by either Glenda Dexter or June Best. Thank you.
