SDLADL - Southend & District Ladies Amateur Darts League

Minutes of League meeting 04Sep18

League Meeting 4 September 2018 held at Ambleside Club

 

Chairlady Kay Ford opened meeting.

Kay read the minutes of the last meeting (AGM 24 July 2018).
Proposed by Linda Buckley.  Seconded by Carol Burrell. Agreed.

 

Correspondence

1) Tricia Smith apologised for her absence.

2) Linda Buckley on closure of Southend Conservative Club. The team has relocated to Westcliff British Legion and has been renamed Misfits.

3) Wendy Brooks response to letter sent from committee.

4) Jane Schroder resigned as treasurer. This was due to Angels folding and her moving teams to Windermere where there are already 2 committee members, and the Constitution prohibits more than 2 members from one team.

In response to Jane’s letter, Kay is not willing to accept the resignation. Kay proposed a breach of the 2 committee members per team rule for the season until a capable replacement can be found.

The vote was unanimous in favour of this proposal.

Welcome packs

Welcome packs for the new season were given out and the contents explained. This includes fixture booklet for each player and one for each venue.

League match home & away result cards. Ample cup & league cards have been supplied and a few spare – if anymore are needed they will be supplied for a fee. Old result cards should no longer be used as the quality was updated so please discard them and only use the new ones.
Please don’t forget to put the team names on your result cards – the results can’t be updated if the team name is not supplied.

No change – away card to Jane, home card to Trish.

D&J Cup draw is on the website and will be updated each round, any problems you can always text Trish. Jane suggested that the website would be updated quicker if results were sent to her straightaway. Agreed that winners of cup matches are to text/WhatsApp their results to Jane.

Venues

It was noted that due to the closure of Southend Conservative Club, the only large venue in the league is the Eagle Club and so all the large cups will be held there.

It was noted that Ambleside Club is not available for the Xmas Draw so various venue options were discussed, including Eagle Club, Leigh Constitutional Club and Trinity Club. Please feedback your team’s views to Trish by Monday 10 September. The committee will then decide and book a venue.

Fees

Individual team members’ fees have been paid.

Due to bank account being in surplus there are no team registration fees this year, and no meeting fees.

 

Next meeting Tuesday 2 October 2018, 8pm at Ambleside

Requirements for November meeting:
1. Xmas draw tickets will be given out – 5 books per registered player.

Meeting closed 8.36pm.

League Meeting 3 October 2017 held at Ambleside Club

 

Chairperson opened the meeting and apologised for missing the last meeting. SCC will be arriving about 8.15pm.
Secretary read minutes from last meeting (5 September 2017).
Proposed by Doreen Adams. Seconded by Carol Burrell. Agreed.

There was one letter – Angels are moving venue from 16 October, from Hockley British Legion to Leigh Constitutional Club. They will still be known as Angels.

We would like to welcome Sasha Bush (Eagle Club) onto the committee.

 

Children’s Christmas party – cancelled

Names and monies for the children’s Xmas party were handed in. 45 names were given in which did not meet the minimum requirement of 50 children.
Lynn Remmer said that Angie Hicks has offered to pay the shortfall so the party could go ahead.
It was decided that the committee would stay behind after the meeting to discuss this.

[Addendum: Committee agreed it was not feasible as even with the shortfall paid for it would still run at a loss. The party will NOT take place this year.
Monies were returned on the night to the teams represented on the committee. Drifters’ monies were returned to Emma Hawkes by Jane Schroder on Sunday 8 Oct.]

Ladies Pairs

Names and fees were handed in. Competition will be held at the Eagle Club on 9 November and the draw will take place at 8pm sharp! Both players must be present and ready to play so it’s best to get there for 7.45pm to check-in. If you are not coming please let Tricia or Teresa know.

Mixed Pairs

Names and fees were all handed in, and all were reminded that no men who have played super league or county darts in the last 5 years are eligible. It’s up to you to check.
The competition will be held on 23 November at Southend Conservative Club and the draw will take place at 8pm sharp! Same as ladies pairs – both players must be present and ready to play so get there for 7.45pm to check-in. Linda and Gilly will be running the venue.

Male players should be mindful of their behaviour in this competition, and make sure that they are respectful of the Committee members and all the ladies of the League. This is our league and they have been invited to play in it.

Christmas Draw – Friday 15 December at Ambleside

Xmas draw books will be delivered to teams by Monday. 5 books per registered player. Any unsold tickets must be purchased by the player. DO NOT RETURN TICKETS UNSOLD.

Please ensure that name and team is written clearly on each stub, and that stubs are folded in 4. The stubs can either be brought to the next meeting or brought along on the draw night and put into the bag yourself.

Please encourage your players to sell as many as possible; Kay stressed that it is the only fundraising we do to help buy all the trophies. If you need additional tickets please see Secretary Tricia Smith; she will have them with her at the Pairs and next meeting.

 

SCC arrived at 8.15pm.

Treasurer: no meeting fees due to bank account being in surplus.

 

Next meeting Tuesday 7 November 2017, 8pm at Ambleside

Requirements for November meeting:
1. Triples names + fees
2. Xmas draw monies – please cash up at your bar/club before handing in, it’s not fair to weigh Jane down with too much change and have to spend time counting out bags of coins.
3. Xmas draw tickets (they can be taken along on the draw night if you prefer). Please fold into four – i.e. fold then fold again to make a square. Ensure your team name is on every ticket.
4. Xmas draw £10 raffle prize with receipt attached or £10 cash.

Meeting closed 8.22pm.

League Meeting 4 October 2016 held at Ambleside Club

 

Chairperson opened the meeting. Jesters were not there but maybe they are parking or maybe they forgot.
Secretary read minutes from last meeting (6 September 2016).
Proposed by Doreen Adams.  Seconded by Wendy Brooks. Agreed.

There were no letters to be read.

 

Children’s Christmas party – cancelled

Names and monies for the children’s Xmas party were handed in. 40 names were given in so Jane Schroder asked if anyone could bring any more? The answer was no so the party will NOT take place this year. Jane explained that the entertainment costs £150, plus food and presents so it’s not viable to hold the party with so few kids. All monies were handed back.

Mixed Pairs

Names and fees were all handed in, and all were reminded that no men who have played super league or county darts in the last 5 years are eligible.
The competition will be held on 24 November at the Eagle Club. Event being run by Teresa and Tricia.

Ladies Pairs

Names and fees were handed in. Competition will be held at Southend Conservative Club on 15 October and the draw will take place at 8pm sharp! It’s no good saying your partner is parking etc, both players must be present and ready to play so it’s best to get there for 7.45pm to check-in.
The competition takes place on 10 November at SCC. Kay and Gilly are running the event.

Christmas Draw – Friday 9 December at Ambleside

Does everyone want bingo? –Yes. Bingo and background music.

Xmas draw books were given out – 5 books per registered player. Any unsold tickets must be purchased by the player. DO NOT RETURN TICKETS UNSOLD.
Please ensure that name and team is written clearly on each stub, and that stubs are folded in 4. The stubs can either be brought to the next meeting or brought along on the draw night and put into the bag yourself.
Please encourage your players to sell as many as possible; Kay stressed that it is the only fundraising we do to help buy all the trophies. If you need additional tickets please see Secretary Tricia Smith; she will have them with her at the Pairs and next meeting.

Raffles

Reminder that the captain/secretary/vice-captain’s cups are being combined into 1 night, and that teams will need to bring TWO x £5 raffle prizes. For all prizes at cup matches, receipts are required.

We are still getting complaints about raffle prizes not being worth it. All prizes should be something worth winning, this includes league games too. No-one wants to pay a pound and see a table full of things from the 99p shop. If need be, reduce the number of prizes and improve the quality.

Result cards

Tricia said that she still has to wait for some result cards. She has been waiting for 2 weeks for cards from one team. This is unacceptable.

Carol Burrell (Plough Birds) asked where you put the reserve’s name. Jane pointed out that there are 10 lines on the card so there is plenty of room to write in a reserve.

 

 

Jesters did not arrive at the meeting.

Treasurer advised she had received £22 league fees.

Next meeting Tuesday 1 November 2016, 8pm at Ambleside

Requirements for November meeting:
1. Triples names + fees
2. Xmas draw monies – please cash up at your bar/club before handing in, it’s not fair to weigh Jane down with too much change and have to spend time counting out bags of coins.
3. Xmas draw ticket stubs (these can be taken along on the draw night if you prefer). Please fold into four – i.e. fold and fold again to make a square. Ensure your team name is on every ticket.
4. Xmas draw £10 raffle prize with receipt attached or £10 cash.
