Any other Business

Mr Reay informed the committee that the new trophy cabinet would be fitted in the next few weeks.

The committee discussed the implementation of a drawn Saturday competition once a month during the 2018 summer season. The consensus of opinion was that this would have to be requested by members in the first instance.

The treasurer suggested that some of the money bequeathed to the club by the late David Beardall could be used to assist the junior section. This will be added to the agenda for further discussion before the start of the summer season 2018.
