AGENDA FOR EXTRAMEETING TO BE HELD ON TUESDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2013 AT MEOLE BRACE BC AT 7.30 PM

 

1.         Purpose of Meeting

 

           As instructed at our October 2013 meeting, the secretary has arranged an extra November meeting to discuss the “ideas” raised by the sub committee meetings held in the summer to improve the Premier League. There have been no additional “ideas” submitted to me by the 12th November and where we have a current rule in place, I have provided a suggested wording to incorporate the basis of the idea. An “Appendix” document is attached to this agenda for each idea raised. The Annual General Meeting is to be held on the 21st January 2014 and any proposed rule changes that this meeting may generate need to be advised to the secretary before the 24th December.
