AGM REPORT - Freda Thomas took over the Presidency of the county from outgoing Alan Parish (Somersham) on Friday 15th Jan at the Huntingdonshire Bowls AGM. She looked forward very much to her forthcoming year as President. Ray Keating (Parkway) was elected Senior Vice President.
Trevor Collins was elected as Chairperson whose job description is to chair meetings as required. Responsible for managing the administration of the county ensuring that all areas comply with the constitution, rules and regulations.
Bob and Angie Morton remain as Mens and Ladies Competition Secretaries, Freda Thomas as Association Secretary. Assistant Association Secretary Angie Morton. There were two Match Secretary (friendlies) nominations and this went to a vote with Ray Keating being elected with Ian Stocker (Eynesbury) his Assistant. Dina Barlow Ladies Match Secretary. Treasurer Keith Thomas.
Bob informed the meeting that for 2016 county shirts would be allowed to be worn in the county friendlies. There would also be a new rule for 2017 competitions, in that only the named player will be required to purchase a county hand book albeit it would be mandatory for each club to purchase a copy but players may still purchase their own copy if desired. Although a disappointing year in the Middleton Cup campaign losing a couple of key players, the youngsters who he bought into the side certainly did him proud and they look good for the future with many of the young lads and lasses from the county now being recognised for international duties. Freda Thomas reiterated Bob's comments about the youngsters and was delighted and proud at the way the Johns team performed they were a credit to the county.
Thanks go to Sawtry BC for their hospitality. 18.01.16 rk/deh
