ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Annual General Meeting

******************************************************

The Isle of Bute Pool League A.G.M. took place on Sunday the 7th October. Elected as office bearers were Mike McHardy (Chairman & SPA Rep), Gordon McMillan (Vice-Chairman), Kevin Bowie (Secretary), Carol McHardy (Treasurer) with Chez Harrison, Willie Mullen, Richard Reid, John McBride, Colin Nicol and Robert Docherty Snr on the committee.

Additionally each team must have a representative attend committee meetings (Rule No.3 in the constitution), and in order to ensure compliance it was agreed on Sunday that a one point team deduction will ensue for each non-attendance, you have been warned!

NEXT COMMITTEE MEETING

WEDNESDAY 17th OCTOBER

GALATEA BAR AT 8PM

The team entry fee remains the same as last year £25 for one team and £30 for two. Ten teams have entered this season the Golfers, Struan, Mac’s and Kingarth have entered 2 teams each and the Galatea and Palace have both entered 1 team.

With the planned league start date being Thursday 18th October it’s important that teams familiarise themselves and comply with some of the changes agreed at the AGM.

A copy of the revised constitution, team guidelines and rules for the new ‘scotch doubles’ playing format to be used this season will be distributed before the start date.

Player registration of £1 has been dropped this year in favour of a one off £6 team registration which should be collected by the team captains and forwarded to the pool league before the first matches kick off.

Match points are awarded as follows 1 point for winning or drawing the singles section, 1 point for winning the doubles section and 1 point to the match winner. League positions will be decided on points won irrespective of total wins. Should points be level then game difference will be employed, if that too is level a play-off will decide the outcome. Theoretically it is possible for a team to win the league without having won the most matches.

It was also agreed to form a sub-committee whose sole purpose would be to select an island team to enter the SPA’s 11 and 15 person team challenges or indeed any other team competitions that come along.


SPA affiliation 2013: The IoBPL will affiliate to the SPA for the 2013 season. This will allow any member of the league to join the SPA as an individual member (IM) and enter at a cost of £30 seven ranked IM tournaments played during 2013. If there are sufficient entries local qualifiers for each tournament will be held on the island with the winners going through to the national finals played at various locations on the mainland. Anyone wishing to join the IM’s must submit their name and £30 entry to Mike McHardy by Sunday 11th November.


SPA fiveperson tournament update: Two island teams FUBAR and The Mafia are set to go to Petty Cur Bay Caravan Park for the annual national five person team challenge. The teams will be leaving on the 1pm sailing on Friday 26th October for the weekend. The caravans are paid for and the coach is booked to pick us up at Wemyss Bay at 2pm. Two players are still to pay their coach money and I ask for this money to be paid forthwith.


Mike McHardy - Chairman
