Annual General Meeting 2017
Note from your Chairperson
The club‘s Annual General Meeting will take place on November 19th 2017. For anybody wishing to get involved in the committee , nomination forms will be available in the club or here on the website in the next couple of days.
Fiona has decided to step down as Club Captain. I’d like to thank her for the last two years, where she first served as Vice-captain before taking over as Club Captain last year. A big thanks and well done from all on the committee.
With Fiona stepping down, we have vacancies for Captain and Vice-captain. The other officers; chairperson, secretary and treasurer are all happy to serve for another term, but people are free to seek election for any position. Many of the other members of the committee are also willing to stay on, but we’re always looking for help, so anybody who’d like to get involved, please let us know.
One thing that I would like to discuss at the AGM is setting up a kitchen committee to run the Opens. Mary Malone has played a starring role over the last 2 years, but is stepping down next year. Mary has down Trojan work over the last 2 years and deserves a huge thanks from everybody. Well done Mary!!
To run the kitchen for the open is a big task and really should be run by a team or committee, to share the workload. I know a lot of people help for the Opens, but we need to formalise it. I will include this as agenda item at the AGM.
If you have questions or queries, please let me know.
Club Night will kick off again on this Thursday, 19th Oct 2017. Please be at the club at 7.45pm sharp. Cost is €3.
For those who haven’t played before it’s a blitz format, where you play 4 x 15 minute games. Again great fun guaranteed.
The Committee are looking for volunteers to join the rota to run Club night. Five of last year’s crew are staying on, ideally we’d like three to five more volunteers so that each pair would be on one week in four or five. It’s easy to learn how to run the blitz and you can play on the night as well, so please step up if interested. Please contact Anne O’Hea on 086 3549771 if you can get involved.
A big thanks to all on last year’s blitz rota!
Tommy Jackson Perpetual Trophy
Crosshaven Tennis Club have invited us to again take part in the now annual Tommy Jackson Perpetual Trophy on Saturday 14th October 2017. Times to be confirmed. The Club will be sending two men and two ladies in Grades 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 – twenty players in total. The event was run for the first time last year and all those who took part thoroughly enjoyed this one day team challenge between the two clubs.
If you’re interested in playing please email your name and grade by September 30th to captain@carrigalinetennisclub.
If we receive more than two names in any grade we will draw straws. I will contact everyone who responds as soon as possible after the closing date.
Fiona Crumplin, Club Captain.
