Annual General Meeting

27th September 2022

held at The Ex Services Club, Bicester


  1. Welcome - Phil Allen (Secretary) welcomed everyone to the meeting. The following were in attendance:

Billy Atwell, Steve Golder, Dave Wheeler, Keith Lennard, Karl Budd, Ray Rowe, Roger Herbert, Olly Carvell, Aimee Sheehan, Dave Vear, Rick Gumbert, Darren Moore, John Clutterbuck, Dave Smith, Nick Cherry, Colin Baldwin, Kevin Powney, John Smith, Terry Smith, Terry Hawkins, Phil Allen.


  1. Apologies – Dan Jobling.


Finance - The secretary/treasurer produced a copy of both the Tuesday and Wednesday accounts and the bank statement. All were happy and accepted the paperwork as a true record.


The weekly match fee will remain at £1.00 per player per game and the fundraising will continue in its normal format (ie the Take Your Pick sheet and playing cards).


  1. Election of officers - Phil Allen will continue as both secretary and treasurer.


  1. Constitution of the League – The Bell will continue with their two teams in the Tuesday league but will not be allowed to swap them around as previously. So, it does mean that both Tuesday and Wednesday leagues will be the same teams as last year.


In the Tuesday evening league, the previous Barley Mow team will become Lower Heyford Sports and Social Club and the Bull Inn B will be Launton Sports and Social. Bull Inn A will just be Bull Inn.


  1. Fixtures/Cup Competitions - The 2022 league fixtures will commence on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th October, with practice on Wednesday 5th October for players from both leagues (normal start time – 7,45pm).


The intention is to play league fixtures, as we did last year, up until Christmas and then

competitions/handicap leagues thereafter. However, because of the football world cup starting on

Sunday 20th November, there will be no aunt sally on Tuesday 29th November (the night of the

Wales v England fixture) nor on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th December (football semi finals

nights). The fixtures missed out on 29th November will be rescheduled for 20th December.


  1. Any other business –


    • The match start times for both evenings will be as follows:


7.45 8.20 8.55 9.30


  • In the Handicap League, the maximum handicap will be 4.


Albeit summer league business, Karl Budd proposed that the secretary takes his wife out for a

decent meal’. All were in agreement.

Annual General Meeting

28th September 2021

held at The Ex Services Club, Bicester




  1. Welcome - Phil Allen (Secretary) welcomed everyone to the meeting. The following were in attendance:

Billy Atwell, Dan Jobling, Steve Golder, Dave Wheeler, Keith Lennard, Pete Dempsey, Karl Budd, Ray Rowe, Delores Jones, Eddie Jones, Roger Herbert, Olly Carvell, Aimee Sheehan, Phil Allen.


The Code of Practice which we introduced at the 2020 AGM was discussed, but the overall feeling at the meeting was that we no longer need to adhere to that and we can revert to how we used to play prior to Covid-19.


  1. Apologies –


Finance - The secretary/treasurer produced a copy of both the Tuesday and Wednesday accounts and the bank statement. All were happy and accepted the paperwork as a true record.


The weekly match fee will remain at £1.00 per player per game and the fundraising will revert to its normal format (ie the Take Your Pick sheet and playing cards).


  1. Election of officers - Phil Allen will continue as both secretary and treasurer.


  1. Constitution of the League – The Butchers Arms and the Bull Inn C have withdrawn from the Tuesday league and the White Horse from the Wednesday league. The Bell will enter a team in the Tuesday league (giving us 7). Aimee Sheehan believes she can persuade a few extra players to join us on both nights.


  1. Fixtures/Cup Competitions - The 2021 league fixtures will commence on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th October.


The intention is to play league fixtures up until Christmas and then competitions/handicap leagues

thereafter.


  1. Any other business –


    • The match start times for both evenings will be as follows:


7.45 8.20 8.55 9.30


  • On the first evenings of each league (Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th), every effort will be made to find five players to make up the ‘eighth’ team. Initially, if there is a shortage, players from the any of those teams in attendance will be used – and they will be allowed after that to go back to their original teams.
