Meeting Closed.

Minutes 31st October 2008.

 

All teams represented.

 

 

 

  1. League tables, new fixture sheets and team of the year standings were distributed. Secretary stated that Horden Rugby Club have replaced Chimneys. It was further noted that a discrepancy in the league table was evident. Horden Comrades had beaten Wheatley Hill 10-4 not the other way around. Therefore the points total for Horden Comrades was understated by 6 points and that of Wheatley Hill was overstated by 6 points.

 

  1. Treasurer Report for the 2007/8 season was viewed and accepted by the meeting delegates. It detailed that balance carried forward from 2006/7 was 219.64. Income for last season amounted to 468.00 and expenditure for the same period was 517.50. This left a balance carried forward at the start of this season of 170.14. With the additional spirit draw taking place at the meeting (see item 3) and the anticipated 60 income from raffles (see item 4) would mean that the financial position overall would be slightly improved as compared to the same stage for last season.

 

  1. Bottle Draw. 5 was received from each team. The winning team was Shotton Comrades who accepted the bottle of Smirnoff Vodka left unclaimed from the previous presentation night.

 

4.   Secretary reported that the Executive Committee sat on the 2nd October to debate an offer from Winmau. The background of the case was that Arrow darts had been in contact with a view to perhaps sponsoring the league. Nothing had come from it but as a result, Eric had placed an item on the website inviting sponsorship. Winmau had been in contact and were particularly interested in the charitable contributions. Secretary had provided a list of charities and good causes we’d contributed to over the years and they offered to provide us with merchandise in exchange for a link through our web site to theirs (Red Dragon). This consisted of two dartboards and an amount of “small merchandise” and a number of catalogues and the like to distribute. (Catalogues and keyrings were distributed among delegates at the meeting) Winmau intended to monitor the web traffic through the link and possibly provide us with “promotions” in the future. The Executive Committee had decided to accept the offer with the intention of monitoring the promotions forthcoming over the course of the next year or so. The upshot of it all is we have two Red Dragon boards which we would raffle on the singles and pairs nights with the Football Club’s permission. The intention is two 30 football or domino cards or similar (60 x 50p numbers). This will make 60 for charitable funds. Secretary stated that members with internet facility should go through the link to the Red Dragon site to sample the merchandise therein. He further stated that he had noted a discount if purchasers registered on the forum before ordering items via the phone line.

 

 

  1. Draw for KO Cup Round 1: –

Delegates were reminded that teams should be in the venue by usual time (8.30). Non-attendance by 9pm and they forfeit the match.

Old Season

1. Payment of monies due to the league and prizes for spirit draw. Secretary explained that there had been an error relating to the tickets. Contrary to previous communication, the face value for the tickets is only 1 rather than 2. In previous years, the league had always requested that each team purchase at least 10 worth of tickets, it was suggested that clubs who had ordered less than 10 tickets should be requested to pay 10. Those who had ordered 10 or more would pay face value. In so doing, this would ensure that income would not be down on previous years. This was agreed.

 

2. Charity – Secretary stated that the good cause for the season would be Communicare who provide local transport for the disabled.

 

New Season

 

Firstly, it was clarified that as this was the AGM the voting rights were 1 person 1 vote.

3. Treasurer s Report. It was noted that the cost of trophies was 270. Treasurer indicated that collection of entry fees at the competitions was 130. He proposed to add 90 from league funds to make the charity cheque 220. This was agreed. As in previous seasons, the full Treasurers report was deferred to the next meeting as the majority of the league’s income occurred at the presentation night.

 

4. League Format and administration.

-          It was agreed that teams would play each other 3 times with the league commencing 15th August.

-          League format and administration to remain as currently.

 

5. Competitions.

-          All competitions to remain in their present format with the exception that in the singles and pairs competitions, order of throw will be decided by a single throw for the bullseye. First person to bull up will be the first player named in the draw. This replaces the present coin spins.

-          Peterlee Football Club to be retained as competition venue for the 2008/9 season.

-          A delegate proposed that all players must have played 5 games before being allowed into the competitions. The secretary read out the present league rule as follows:   Any player is eligible to play in the singles and pairs competitions as long as they have played for a team during that season. Team captains are responsible for ensuring that competition entries are appropriate. League Secretary has the power to query any entry he deems as not in the spirit of a friendly league.” After some discussion, it was agreed that this rule had not been breached during the 2007/8 season and that the rule should be retained for 2008/9.
