The West Section League at Plymstock Community Centre - 3rd Friday from October to March
More teams than played last year can be accommodated and this is a good introduction to teams and helps with selection for County events. The deadline date for more teams is 30 September 2016. Contact Ros Morgan (01752 719327, firstname.lastname@example.org)
All West Section members are welcome to put forward ideas with a view to running other events under DBA/EBU Rules.
Ruth Edmondson has agreed to be County Treasurer; this will be ratified at a committee meeting in early July.
There is still a vacancy for this post.
At the DBA AGM on 12 June, the Chairman expressed his view that if members expect the same menu of events we need a greater willingness to take up the growing list of vacant Committee posts, extended only 2 days ago when the treasurer announced she is standing down. In the absence of any volunteers Terence Treeby has indicated he will organise the April 2017 congress but will not be available thereafter.
Mike Hamon was re-elected as Chairman but will stand down next year; Terence Treeby was re-elected as Hon Secretary.
There were no nominees for the post of vice-Chairman and Hon. Treasurer. These posts are vacant and anyone wishing to volunteer should contact the Chairman or Hon Secretary and can be co-opted at the next committee meeting.
After lengthy discussion, the meeting agreed that no changes are made to the present selection arrangements for the Tollemache qualifiers. It was agreed that proxy voting will be permitted in future with a maximum of one proxy per member present.
The teams that followed was won by a narrow margin by Mike Hamon, Howard Kent-Webster, Joe And Gillian Fawcett from Richard Carter, Carol Ritzen, Richard Watkins and Richard MacLaughlin. Thanks to Terence Treeby and Don Pearson for running the event.
