INFORMATION for 2016

12/01/2016         Will you please arrange for a representative of your club to attend the Northfield & District AGM on Sunday 31st January 2016 11am at Kings Norton Ex. there is a fine for non attendance of 5.

I am attaching the following for your information.

AGM 2015 Minutes
Agenda for the 2016 meeting
Club form for completion
Annual Accounts (these have not yet been audited)
2016 proposed League formation

Please let me have your Club details as soon as possible as it would be helpful to have this information prior to the AGM.

As you will see the club form includes the League fees which as per the existing rules are payable at the AGM. This is a bit of an anomaly as these fees are not agreed until the AGM.
I will propose a rule change next year so that fees are payable at or before the collection meeting so that I can send out a club account with the agreed fees on. To comply with the current rule for this year I have included a fee of 40 per team which is an increase of 5 per team to compensate for the loss of the raffle. Please note that this may change if the members decide at the AGM on a different figure. As per current rule "A surcharge of 5 will be levied if League fees are not paid by the AGM".
Finally please confirm receipt of this email so that I can ensure your club is aware of the meeting or if you are no longerclub secretary please let me know the email address of the new secretary. Regards Bev Pritchard Secretary & Treasurer

Match Secretary & Web Master’s Report 2015/16

It seems just a few weeks since the end of the season but here we are again sorting things out for the 2016 season.

The main change for 2016 is the introduction of a new result system whereby clubs enter results themselves directly on line. This has been operating for a few years in several leagues including the Summit Garage and the Dudley League. The system is devised by MB Bowling Results and is very simple to use, unlike the Warwick and Worcester system which is not as straight forward. A demo page can been found at www.bowlingresults.co.uk so that clubs can try out the system for themselves.
A 4 digit password will be required to enter results into the new system and these will be sent out to clubs in time for the start of the season.
Results must be entered on line within 48 hours of the games being played and the cards do not have to be sent to me, but should be retained for future reference in case of any queries.
I must be notified of all postponed games by text or email (not a phone call as I occasionally need proof of a postponement) in order that this can be recorded on the site. I also must have full names and BCGBA numbers for all club members. Fines for unregistered players will still apply, so please register all your members. I will be the only person able to enter players on to club lists, so it is imperative that you notify me of new members during the season. You have up to 11am on the date of the match to let me have their details.
Obviously any club that requires help in mastering the change over will receive as much help as I can give them, so if you do have any queries or problems with the results system please let me know.
Three clubs have withdrawn from the League and we have an additional B side being entered by Romsley, which currently will make 5 divisions – one of 10 teams, three of 9 teams and one of 8 teams.
Hopefully the season will start with good weather and we will have a brilliant summer.
You will notice that changes have been made to the web site ready for the new season and the new system of entering results. Barry Jones Match Secretary/Web Master
