Cumbria AGM



Following from our AGM here are the -





 There were little changes to match rules -

           I should remind that Rule 4 2 e) 
1)  applies to League games, NOT Whitaker games.
2)  states  -  " if a club's estimates of playing strength differs from the grading order.....". So it is NOT a method for tactical manoevering.

Cumbria AGM

Email from Jonathan Rashleigh -

Dear Association Officers and Club Secretaries

I attach the agenda for the AGM to be held in Kendal on Saturday 20th July together with the proposals received for changes to the rules.

The Minutes of last year's AGM held on 23rd June 2018 and the Special General Meeting held on 1st September 2018 were previously circulated and are available in the library section of the CCA website together with the current version of the Constitution.

The Abbott Hall Social centre is not licensed, but tea and coffee will be available during the meeting. Regrettably there is no adjacent free parking on a Saturday afternoon but there are pay and display car parks next to the hall and in the adjoining streets.

Kind Regards

Jonathan Rashleigh - Secretary

The Agenda is here. Please note that the name Bill Henderson was incorrect on that circulated by email and has been changed to Bill Hardwick.
