Just a short report of the committee meeting held on Tuesday 7th via zoom. I have to say, it went better than I hoped.
The meeting was primarily to ratify the change of officers. Bill has now taken over as treasurer and I am now chairman. These changes will be on a temporary basis until we can have a properly constituted AGM. Over the next few weeks the committee will look at how we can do this, but it may be that the only option is to try and organise an AGM via zoom.
The committee agreed that everyone who paid their subs in 2019 will remain a member until we can organise a way of collecting subs, probably at a reduced rate for 2020/21.
The committee decided, that given the less than enthusiastic take up of the Monday evening web chat, that we will be trying to find out what members want from the club in the continuing covid situation. We will put together a questionnaire and then each committee member will ring around for answers. So, expect a phone call in the next week or two. We will put the questionnaire on the web site newsletter so those that use this facility, canhave a look and decide on their answers.
And again, given the apparent lack of interest, we have decided to suspend the competition for this year.
We discussed the future of the club and how we see it running in this time of “new normal”, but decided to wait until we had the answers to the questionnaire, before we made any decisions.
The least difficult part of the meeting was the unanimous decision to make Carl Burn an honorary member of BWT. Carl has devoted an enormous amount of his own time and effort, to the web site, the newsletter and setting up the weekly zoom meeting. We wouldn't be where we are without him.
I hope you are all safe and well and look forward to seeing you all in the flesh, in the not too distant future.
