Wellington Bowling Club Contributor


Please remember we are holding a special general meeting on monday 7th February at 7.00pm, we will discuss the audited accounts and consider the following motion the Executive have put forward-

Background to the motion:
Under the current regulations lndoor Membership Fee is £15 and £2 per 2 hour session.
Roll Up Group members currently pay upfront for their scheduled slots in September and January. This has been a regulation for some time but never enforced. League and Casual Bookings are on a pay as you play basis.
Our indoor Membership fees and playing fees have not risen in recent years and are cheaper than other local Clubs. Taunton Deane and Mid Devon have Membership fees of £40 and £70 respectively and playing fees of €3 per 2-hour session.
Motion for eligible members to vote on:
The Executive Committee has received comments from Members about how our indoor rink is funded. Currently the club needs to ensure that it raises around £20k just to meet its obligations and the Executive Committee has calculated that it costs around £6k to run the indoor rink.
The Executive Committee has listened to all comments and has come up with the following three options for Members to vote upon.

Option 1 Keep the current system; Roll Up Groups Pay in Advance, League and Casual Bookings are on a Pay by Play basis and £15 lndoor Membership Fee. ln the event of members, having paid in advance, being unable to play due to medical or family reasons and with the agreement of the roll up secretary they may revert to a pay as you play basis for a period of time.

Option 2 All sessions will be on a Pay as you Play Basis and will rise to £3 per 2 hour session and £15 Membership Fee. This is to cover the fact that the club cannot guarantee what income will be received if members only pay when they turn up.

Option 3 A Membership Fee of £50 and no further payment for sessions played. Under this option based on playing one session per week the Executive have calculated that Members will save a minimum of £21 over the year.

I would like to remind you that questions can only be taken on those matters detailed on the agenda, namely the account and the motion.
