In conjuction with the discussion on the future of the intercounties, in particular the ladies intercounties, I believe rule 3 needs rewording;
3) Competitions will include a County Championship; a Ladies County Championship; an Individual Championship; a Ladies Individual Championship; a Pub Championship; an Over 50's Championship; an Over 60's championship and a Grand Prix.
To something like
AEBBA will be free to run whatever competitions it deems economical but, if included, age related competitions will be for the Under 25's, over 50's and over 60's
The current rule does not have half the existing comps AEBBA run in it and is far too limiting of the decisions AEBBA can make as it stands. It will also open up discussion for amendments at the AGM on the specific age limitations.
Just to clarify what I have done (to make sure I have done it correctly)
I wanted to put a rule change proposal to the AGM this year which is proposed by myself and seconded by Pauline
Even though I read through the current rules, knowing it might affect other rules I asked Chris to check I had covered all the rules it might affect. He pointed out that Rule 3 would need an amendment which I have done in my proposals.
I emailed the proposals to Dave and Pete to be put up for discussion at the AGM.
There has been no discussion between myself and Chris regarding the proposal just that I had missed one rule it might affect.
Im sure I read in the rules that they need to go to the Secretary/Chairman who will then send them to County Secretarys?
