Any Other Business
To hopefully get more entrants into the sticker-up competition, this will now be held in
December on a date to be decided. A reminder will be included in the December meeting
and also sent to all Landlords to display in alleys.
The Chairman proposed that all entrants should receive a participant medal.
Sticker-up fees for End of Season Cup Competitions
One of the fee containing envelopes which had been delivered to each venue for the end of
season cup competitions had gone amiss, but this has now been sorted.
Nomination Cup Final

Luckington to arrange this for Monday 27 th May, and it will take place then unless otherwise
White Line Rule – No. 7
Captains were asked to ensure all players (new and old) are made aware of the white line
rule and to adhere to it.
End of Season Cup Competitions
1) Venues: Although this was an unforeseen occurrence, and in no way reflects on the
organisers, the venues will be looked at for the forthcoming season after it was raised
that a football match was televised at The Football Club at the same time as a Ladies
competition was being held, which was very distracting for all players and supporters.
The Chairman proposed that maybe we could do weekly block bookings at each venue.
2) Attendance: It was also noted that Captains should remind and check that their players
know when they are playing.
3) Presentation of Cups: It was raised that there were no presentations of cups at finals of
the KO & DE cups & the end of season competitions. The Chairman stated that all cups
& trophies will be presented at the meeting in August as a lot of them had still not been
returned from last season. The end of season competition winners will/have been
presented with their miniature individual trophies.
4) Referees Decision: A disagreement arose at one competition as to the decision of the
referee. Members were reminded that in all of these games, volunteer referees are
asked for and that their decisions would be abided by.
The Chairman emphasised his thanks to everyone who helped in the organising and scoring
of these competitions, and more volunteers are always welcome.
There being no other business the Chairman closed the meeting at 9.15pm.
