2014 AGM

Minutes from the AGM

Members

Unfortunately Brian Connett has decided not to renew his membership, Brian will be missed & we hope it's only for a short while, Alan Unsworth has also resigned as he can't get to the games as often as he would like to, Alan is hoping to play 1 or 2 majors as a guest & wants to join us on our Captains weekend in September (dates permitting)

Good news is we have 2 new members joining us, Steve Surples has joined although he won't be playing till April with us as he's just landed a 6 month contract to work in Argentina (he assures me he's not canning corned beef), Kev Jennings has also joined, most will know Kev has he has joined us a guest on numerous occassions, we welcome them both & hope we can get 1 or 2 more over the coming months.
