4.2. Mike Abbott has spoken with Nelson about installing a ramp to the Duck House and the matter is in hand.
5. Upcoming Competitions
5.1. The committee gave considerable time to discussing how the Club should proceed given the current situation with the Corvid19 Virus. It was decided that the best way forward was to continue to play the competitions but that there would be no entry fee or 2s, this allows for minimum contact within the shop and negates the need for prize giving. The results giving places of 1st, 2nd and 3rd will be posted on the website, obviously no vouchers will be issued. The Ralph Griffin Trophy and the Charity Day will be postponed. Giles Fox will send out a notice to all members explaining the committee’s decision.
ACTION Giles Fox
