Over the next week I will add some polls to the facebook page for a couple of competition ideas for us to look at as we now have a shorter league format.
I am also looking at potential dates for an pre AGM meeting so that we can look at changing our constitution on voting in new rules. It currently states that rules must be voted in an AGM, but this does in the modern day seem slightly outdated. However, we will have to have a small meeting to agree that change so we can do some form of electronic voting mechanism.
