We have 29 diners booked in for a week on Friday. After consulting with the league exec the unanimous decision is that we postpone it. A few players are otherwise engaged and there is an England game that night. The England game is NOT the major problem!! it is the continuing dwindling numbers for this function.
The AGM is set for Tuesday 24th August, This is early to allow us to consider new formats for the Winter League, possibly all play all twice.
I still feel that our winners should be honoured at a gathering and there are two possibilities
1) Extend the AGM evening to include a Presentation. possibly with a buffet.
2) Hold the Presentation Dinner on Friday 3rd September, hall and caterers are free (at the moment). The caterer is on holiday after that. I would worry about entertainment if this is the choice.
Can you please talk to your teams ASAP and let me have names and numbers who would attend either function. I can then talk to the league exec. Most of the missing names for the Presentation Evening are guests not players, particularly from the Magnet 'B' group. There would need to be a heavier commitment from players and particularly in bringing their partners if a Presentation Dance is to be considered.
Warren / Dave can you please consult Betteshanger / Magnet 'B'
Please let me know ASAP or the availability window may close.

??? A , but all too expected announcement! When will people learn that we HAVE to support our League's events, or lose them forever. I will speak to the team about the options available, but will probably vote for a postponement till 3rd September. We also need to remember that we are known as the "Friendly League" and need to encourage new players & pubs. ;)
