Hertfordshire's annual general meeting was held at Essendon Village Hall last night (22/05/14). All members of last years committee were willing to stand again, with the exception of Mike Bennett (Chairman) and Sylvia Page/Mary Cobbold (Secretary).
Pete Cook was elected as chairman after being the only nomination. There were no nominations for secretary so Pete also agreed to fill this vacancy on a temporary basis on the proviso that all clubs speak to their members and a secretary is put in place before the next committee meeting. Alan Bull of Great Amwell was also voted on to the committee as an additional Committee Member. The Hertfordshire committee pass their thanks on to Mike, Mary & Sylvia for their efforts during their time in the posts.
The most important item on last nights agenda was the proposal for a reduction in the number of players required for league matches. The proposal was to enable teams to play league games with any combination of 8-12 players. If a team has less than 12 players (which would mean a player needing to bowl in the fours and the pairs) they would not be permitted to bowl as skip twice and would not be permitted to bowl on the same mat twice. This proposal was passed at last nights AGM.
This should enable some of the clubs that are low on numbers to retain their league status. It will also possibly make it easier for us to approach other clubs who have dropped out of the league but still continue to bowl (Hunsdon, Woolmer Green, Redbourne & Bramfield) to come back in. The new club that has been set up at Anstey are also now more likely to enter the league if they only need a minimum of 8 bowlers.
The full minutes of last nights AGM will appear on the website when available
