Boxing Day Tournament Result

Congratulations to Helen and Harry who beat Katie and Graham in the final of the 2010 Boxing Day tournament. It was another good turnout with 14 pairings split into 2 groups of 7 for the initial round robin phase, all games were played in a great spirit as everyone enjoyed the afternoon. Both semi finals were close with Helen and Harry just piping Jane and Josh, and Katie and Graham just beating Laura and Alex in an equally close game. Thanks to Mark and Helen for arranging things as usual. Pictures to follow.

Boxing Day Tournament

The St Andrews Boxing Day Tournament 2010 will be taking place on Monday the 27th of December. Expect the usual format of round robin games followed by a short knockout phase to determine the winners. If you are planning on taking part please get there for midday so we can get pairings, groups and fixtures organised ASAP. There will be the usual charge of a fiver, to cover bacon butties, prizes and hopefully a bit of fund raising. Normally the finish is around 5/6pm and we then plan to go out for a meal out at a local pub. Please enjoy the day.

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.
