NP raised a question about the e-mail list as some seem not to be receiving e-mails from the captain.

SF raised the question about the upcoming years fixtures secretary. ST explained that it looked unlikely that SW would be able to take over as Captain next year due to work commitments but has suggested that he and DP may be able to take over fixtures. This can all be ratified at the AGM.

NS suggested looking at next years costs per round and whether bacon rolls/coffee and trophies should be scaled back. ST suggested a conversation about this at the AGM.

ST is awaiting to hear from some about money paid to the Society for the UK weekend away that was cancelled and whether they want it back or transferred to the overseas trip.

KF reminded us where she works and offered prizes for Christmas raffle and more balls for next year.

SF asked if anyone has volunteered to be Captain next year given SW work commitments. ST mentioned PF has volunteered to be Captain for 2022, appointment to be ratified at the AGM. NS volunteered to be vice-Captain again if PF did not have anyone in mind. Again to be ratified at the AGM.

Date of the next meeting: The next meeting will be the AGM with the date to follow.
