Message from Rob Petch re EGM tonight

Subject: Mid Lancashire Badminton Leage: Meeting (17 November 10)

Hi All

Just a reminder that we have EGM before the commencement of the Committee Meeting this Wednesday

EGM will start at 19:30 hrs, Welcome Tavern, Lostock Hall

The EGM has been organised for the purpose of voting on the officer’s proposal for both the Chairman and Vice Chairman roles: –

  • Chairman – Paul Eastham
  • Vice Chairman – Jenny Clough / Mark Pallett (Post share)

The officer’s are also proposing the following rule amendment:-

33 (d) Any nominated player who plays on four occasions for any higher
ranked team will become a nominated player for that team. A player who
is not nominated at the start of the season or joins the League mid
season can play on four separate occasions in the League. On the fourth
occasion they will become a nominated player for the highest ranked
team they have played for and thereafter Rule 33 (a & c) will apply.

Can you please be aware that all members of the league are able to attend the EGM.



Hawks G vs St Andrews D

Team : Sam, Colin, Dave, Lucy, Janet, Charlotte

Result : 15-3 Win

Straight forward win in the end. Well done to Sam, Lucy and Dave for picking up 6 each. Apologies to Hawks for the mix up with our ladies arriving late and then disappearing!

Next up :
Monday the 15th of November
Evergreens @ Home D6 7:30pm

St Andrews D vs St Peters

Team : Sam, Colin, Dave, Lucy, Janet, Charlotte

Result : 17-1

Very strange night all round. St Peters turned up 1 lady short, when they phoned the missing lady she was still in the bath as she did not know she was playing! Next thing we have a first time guest dislocate his knee! I really could not look. Paramedics arrived and wheeled him away. I did not catch your name bit I hope you are OK. I have no idea what the other new guests thought of their first night, very weird no doubt. In the meantime the match was won, and well done to Sam and Dave who got the only legitimate maximums. Yes we really have “Sam and Dave” plus “Chaz and Dave” playing on our team.


St Andrews D vs Whittle C

Team : Sam, Colin, Dave, Charlotte H, Janet, Helen R

Result : 16-2 win

After last weeks loss it was an excellent response from the team to pick up another 4 points. Big Sam Pattison was back to a maximum 6, and he was joined by Charlotte and Dave. There were a few tight games during the match, but the overall result was never in doubt.

Next up:
Monday 1st of November
St Peters @ Home 7:30pm
