Minutes of the BTTL Committee meeting held online week commencing 2 March 2020
Consulted: Messrs. Barker, Bolton, Bradbury, Bradshaw, Caswell, Chauhan, McCormick, Rothwell, Tatlock, D Scowcroft, J Scowcroft. Mrs Smart & Mrs Scowcroft
Apologies for absence: N/A
Minutes of the last meeting: These had been circulated and are to be agreed at the next meeting.
Matters Arising: None
Correspondence: We had an email from TT365 which had been circulated online asking about our intentions re using TT365 next season. The General Secretary had replied stating that the main reason we would not be using it would be cost. We had been running the TTEngland site alongside it and thought it would be better not to have two systems for simplicity. However, since the decision last year was made at the AGM, then ultimately it will have to be decided at this year’s AGM in June.
General Secretary’s Report: We will arrange a Saturday morning at Readey's for John's Trophy Selection.
Match Secretary’s Report: I will be requesting the return of Trophies from last years special prize winners. A suggestion was given for the prize for most improved player or most promising junior. Suggestions are welcome for the other place and prize for help given to juniors.
Mike Brierley was transferred at his request from Hilton E to Brass Zone. Since this was after the cut-off date at the end of January, conditions were attached:
(1) He is only to be played as a reserve if you are short of players.
(2) If his wins are seen to have been responsible for affecting the league table positions at the end of the season, then this will be taken account of in setting up the divisions for the next season.
I'll be stepping down from all BTTL duties including tournament and committee. Therefore a new Match Secretary is required.
Treasurer’s Report: Advert money is in apart from one. An enquiry has been sent. Bank balance £5,853. Pay Pal £837. We owe Hilton for the Individual Championships and coming up we have the Closed Championships. The major expense coming up will be the trophies. I have been over to the Chairman's house for some bulk cheque signing in preparation.
We need a new treasurer for next season. Excel spreadsheets knowledge an advantage.
Inter-league Secretary’s Report: None
Tournament Secretary’s Report: Help is requested during the closed championships.
We need a replacement Tournament Secretary for next season.
Date and venue of next meeting: Unless anything crops up requiring attention, it will be rule proposals in May.
