1. Garstang Coaching
Graham Coupe has answered the questions posed by various members of the KDTTL.
Briefly, Graham will run fairly intense coaching sessions in Garstang for promising juniors. He will also run four one day sessions in Kendal to our own requirements, juniors or seniors, free of charge.
After much discussion, it was agreed to recommend to the AGM that KDTTL support Graham’s venture for one year initially with a grant of £500. The AGM will vote on the matter.
Tony will produce a paper summarising the situation for League members to read before the AGM. Action TM
2. Next Year’s League Fees
Tony produced figures illustrating that over the last four years the League has been running a deficit of between £240 and £880 per year. Predicted deficit next year with unchanged fees would be £320.
It was agreed to recommend a modest increase in next year’s fees to the AGM. The following seems reasonable: Seniors from £10.80 to £12.00, juniors from £6.30 to £7.00, teams from £13.50 to £14.00, cup competitions from £3.60 to £4.00.
This represents roughly a 10% rise, compared with the 10% reduction we made a few years ago.
Also we should try and reduce costs wherever possible, eg trophies. Seeking sponsorship may also be an option.
No volunteers yet for Chairman.
