British Parks Junior Merit 1st August 2010 at Hare Hill Park.
As Rochdale have been allocated 8 places, the clubs agreed to nominate1 player from each club to play in the Merits.

Observer Junior:
The Secretary advised the clubs that the Rochdale Observer Men’s competition was now going ahead with a new sponsor (Hughes Gas Wisely). The finals night is scheduled for Friday 23rd July and therefore the junior event final can be played on that evening.

Following discussion the cubs agreed to hold the Junior Observer event on Sunday 20th June at Thistleyfield BC, with the event being played down to the semi-finals. Club entry forms to be circulated nearer the time.

Federation Matches: First match will be at Heavy Woollens at a single two green venue in Heckmondwike on Sunday 2nd May 2010.
Coach will leave Rochdale Town Hall at 9.00am

The team will have new shirts for this season and the clubs agreed that players should be asked for a deposit of £5 for their shirt. This will give the League a fund to replace shirts as required instead of needing to seek grants for major replacement when we run out due to shirts not being returned. Including the embroidery the cost of a shirt is around £8.

The deposit will be returned when the shirt is handed back, or the shirt can be exchanged for a larger size, or retained for the following year. Deposit will be forfeited if the shirt is not returned at all.

The Secretary expressed some concern over the lack of progress on naming a Youth Team and unless we are able to confirm a team we will have to withdraw from the youth Section.

Grant application: The Secretary reported that no response has yet been received on the grant application to the Community Foundation for bowls and team shirts.

Next Meeting: No further meetings were required until the end of the league season.

There being no further business the meeting closed at 8.00 pm.
