Dear Club Secretaries & Members
The Blackpool & District Badminton Association Annual General Meeting is to be held on 8th May at Blackpool Sports Centre (Stanley Park) starting at 7.30pm
Please find enclosed:
N.B. All Council Officer Reports will be made available at the AGM
Firstly, I would like to reiterate the message in the calling notice regarding the vacancies on Council, Council are always keen for new members both as Ordinary Council Members and in Officer Roles, nominations are still being accepted.
It is extremely important for the continuation of this league and its current activities that all vacancies are filled.
It is likely to be a busy meeting, with a number of things to get through and a limited time in which to do it.
As there are a number of proposals to be voted on, discussion on proposals will be kept to a minimum.
Only Club Representatives may vote at the AGM, and the nominated individual will be asked to vote in accordance with their club members wishes.
The voting system is one vote per clubs team, i.e. a 3 team club has 3 votes. Clubs can allocate split votes for and against a proposal if club opinion is divided but fractions of votes are not acceptable.
BDBA League Chairman
Letter from the Social Secretary:
I hope this letter finds you well and that you and your Club have had an excellent 2012/2013 Season. I'm sure like most clubs it has had it highs and lows, its injuries and its nail biting League and Cup Fixtures.
As we approach the Cup Finals night on the 17th April and the end of our League Season I take great pleasure in being able to provide you with the details for the 2012/2103 Season Presentation Evening.
Please find enclosed a link to the Menu and Booking Form for this years event which is being held at the Lindum Hotel, St Annes on 24th May 2013. The cost of each ticket is Â£24.00 which includes an excellent 3 course meal and also evening entertainment following the formal proceedings.
The Presentation Evening isn't just for the winners and runners up from the year. It is an opportunity to be social, debate the seasons results but also to chat about the future of our League in a more casual setting than on court or in meetings.
The menu as you can see is an excellent one however the Hotel are fully aware that there will be some dietary needs are over and above this. If this is the case please do not hesitate to contact me as the Hotel is very accommodating.
As the invitation says please dress smart, this doesn't mean Bond girl dresses and penguin suits but gents shoes and a collar would be appreciated and ladies, well, you get the idea.
Our League boasts 39 teams which accounts to a fraction of our population before we consider non team players, reserves and supporters. No venue could house us all and the Lindum is no different, so it is definitely first come first served so please don't delay in sending your forms and money in.
The Blackpool and District Badminton Association Council look forward to seeing you there.
