Mid Lancs 2015 Annual General Meeting

Message From Sam Gorrell

 Hi All

Apologies for the delay in sending out this reminder about Monday’s Annual General Meeting.

Now that the Welcome Tavern has undergone its transformation into a Bistro Pub, there’s no longer space amongst all the dining table to have our meeting, and I’ve been struggling to find a replacement venue.  However, St Andrews have kindly offered their Church Hall.

So, the AGM will commence at 7:30pm this Monday 13 April at St Andrews Badminton Club, Parish Church Hall, Worden Lane, Leyland PR15 3BD.

In readiness for Monday, please find attached the proposed rule changes received from Cross Feathers Badminton Club and Project 12 Badminton Club, as well as from the Officers of the League.  These proposals will be discussed and voted upon.

Please note that anyone who is a registered player with the Mid Lancs League has a right to attend the AGM and vote, so please encourage all your club members who would like to be present to come along as well.

I have also attached the proposed Agenda and the minutes from the last AGM for approval.

See you all there!

Kind regards

Hello everyone

Here are the cup draws for the preliminary round fixtures at the start of December. The home teams are marked with * and listed on the Cunningham Cup draw.

Please can you pass the details and the score sheet to your team captains? Please can you ask them to return the score sheets as soon as they can (both teams) and to keep file sizes down to about 2MB if possible if emailing?

The home team supplies shuttles but, as last year, shuttle costs are split between both teams with an average cost of £1 per shuttle.

The home teams will be drawn again for the first round in January after the preliminary round results are in.

Thanks very much and good luck!

News 15th of September

It’s the start of the badminton season, and I hope you are all ready for the usual ups and downs that will bring, obviously there will be more ups than downs as we are such a fantastic club! For those of you who are not aware we are running 5 teams again this year, one in each division. We dropped out a team from D2 and entered a team with some juniors in D5. The fixtures are attached, handbook will be available soon.

Unfortunately we have put up membership fees by £5 to cover increases to Lancashire and Badminton England memberships, but on the plus side we will be keeping match fees at £3.50 as there has been no change to shuttle costs. Adult membership is now £55, and Juniors £30, please pass that on to Karloyn or myself as soon as possible.

Have a great season!
