Members should by now have received their A.G.M. Notification from Eleanor but just in case, it is re-produced in full below. Please let our secretary know as soon as possible whether or not you are able to attend at CawderHouseSecretary@gmail.com
Dear Cawder Member
It is fast approaching the end of a very busy curling season and the A.G.M. will be held on Friday 17 April at 7:00 pm at Cawder Golf Club in Bishopbriggs. The format of the evening is a mix of social and business – we start with a meal, then the A.G.M. followed by the presentation of trophies to winning players. Everyone is welcome, including reserves and potential new members.
The cost of the meal plus wine on the table will be £28.00 per person. For catering purposes we need to let the Golf Club know how many are coming so can you RSVP to me at CawderHouseSecretary@gmail.com as soon as possible.
We also have the opportunity to play golf in the afternoon. If you would like to play golf can you also indicate so that I can ensure you get a tee-time? The cost of golf will be £20.
A provisional agenda can be viewed here, Committee details here, and the draft minutes from last year are viewable here. If you have any items you would like added to the agenda, please let me know by 10th April. Notification of resignation should also be made to the President or myself by that date.
Two amendments to the Constitution are proposed for review and approval at the A.G.M.:
3.4 The membership of the Club shall not exceed 36 Regular members.
In light of the increased number of new members in 2014/15, the committee proposes that this limit should be raised to 40.
4.2 Composition of the Committee
Email and Social media are now commonly used for communication in all area of our lives and we must ensure as a Club that we continue to develop our use of website, Facebook and Twitter. It is an increasingly important way of sharing information with Club Members about our activities and successes. The Committee proposes that in recognition of the importance of this media, a new post of Webmaster should be added to the Committee. If this change is accepted at the A.G.M., then paragraph 4.6 shall be updated to include the Webmaster i.e. The Secretary, Treasurer and Webmaster shall serve for three years but may be elected to serve for further terms of three years.
A form for playing intentions for the 2015/2016 season can be found here. Due to the need to book ice at Braehead as early as possible could I request that this is also returned to me by the 10th April – sooner would be better.
This season we have participated in more competitions on offer throughout the year, both local and Province, and the committee is keen to see the raise its profile by participating in more events and encouraging new members. Please give this serious consideration. We appreciate that there is a time commitment over a number of weeks/months for some competitions and I have tried to list most competitions with approximate dates to show what is involved. Any committee member will be happy to answer any queries regarding competitions.
And finally, an order form for club sweaters/sweatshirts and polo shirts can be found here. I hope to have samples available to allow you to check sizes at the last 2 Club evenings (23rd & 30th March) as well as at the A.G.M. Your orders will be placed in the summer to ensure delivery for the beginning of the new season.
I look forward to seeing you on the 17th April.
Just a reminder to everyone that our Constitution can be viewed via the ‘About Us’ drop down menu bar or by clicking here.
