MINUTES OF 2016 AGM  and the EGM     NOTED AND ACCEPTED
 
SECRETARIES REPORT  The secretary requested that all clubs supplt the information to theleague that was supposed to have been done two years previous. Each club present was given a registration form to be filled in with club contacts and captains contacts. And to note players dropping out and add new players. These forms to be handed in with theur league fees at the next delegates meeting on Jan 16th At Falkland rd 7.30  However it was brought up that some clubs will not know how many teams they will be entering.
To set the fixtures we need the amount of teams and their fees paid up so it is less likely a team pulls out.
TREASURERS REPORT The tresurer published the accounts. These were handed out to members. He made a statement that all prize money and engraving needed to be paid out on the evening ( Total £396.50) and this would reduce the start of the season balance. He also made it clear that the officers once again declined to take any payment and preferred that the money be paid out in competition prize money. As he had no auditor he requested someone to audit the accounts. No one volunteered so the accounts were accepted as being true and correct.
APPLICATION TO JOIN OR LEAVE THE LEAGUE.  There were no applications

A vote was passed to play them after the season with volunteers from the floor to run them. However after the vote the volunteers didnt come forward and it was decided not run the comps. 
Another vote was then cast with the majority wishing to hand the running of the comps back to the committee with a request to separate the events during the summer. This was agreed and the comps will still be run on Tuesday nights during June and July.
