Committee 2018

 

09 October 2017

Dear Member

The Association is again seeking nominations from the Clubs to join the Committee for 2018 and beyond.

This is a big commitment for any member to undertake but not as demanding as it was in years gone by. We do recognise that family and work commitments must always be a priority for any Committee member so to that end we have reduced the commitment required by a member during a season and continue to look at the Calendar to try and ease that Commitment.

The simplest way to achieve the above is to get the Committee up to strength, a task that has proven difficult over the last three years. However, we are looking at alternatives for next year to try and attract members onto Committee.

One Club has informed the Committee that they had not put forward a nomination for Committee as they considered that their green was not good enough to host the Finals. The Finals can be held on any green chosen by the President so long as it is by agreement and is suitable. So please do not let that stop any club from nominating a candidate.

Are you a member who has the knowledge, enthusiasm and willingness to serve on Committee but has no desire to be President? Come onto Committee and use that experience for the Associations benefit, nothing says you must be President.

There are member clubs of the Association who have never held the Position of President. Is now the time to put forward a candidate?

Finally, the member who wants to join the Committee and progress through the offices to President. That member is also required.

There is an urgent need of support from the Clubs to fill the empty chairs. Four would be excellent, three would be very good as would two and one.

Support the Association and put forward candidates for the Committee in writing to the Secretary no later than the 31 December 2017.

Matt Purdie Final

The  Edinburgh and Leith seniors win the Matt Purdie Trophy for 2017. Wins on four rinks was enough to bring the trophy home for the second time to remain as current champions.

West Fife put up a good fight at the beginning but slowly E&L took control and won with a twenty five shot margin.

The Scottish final is still to be confirmed against the North but the 14 September is currently the favorite.
