There are a number of other things that the board would like to bring up and discuss with the wider community during the AGM, however we are aware that players won’t want the AGM to drag on for a long time! Over the close season, the board will be continuing to work on these issues, and we wish to invite comments from the community on these topics.  If you have any queries, or can’t attend in person but wish to pass on your thoughts, then please e-mail James Pope before 4pm on Sunday 28th October.  

These other topics include, in no particular order:

  • Equipment / sponsorship review
