This is all the legalese that we're required to send out - the short form is - an active club requires active members and executive. If you care about the club and it's future, you will do your very best to make time to come to this meeting. It generally doesn't take long, but you get the chance to bring up anything you think is not helping, or present ideas that may help the Apaches to continue being the mightiest cricket club in the known universe.

Dear All,

In accordance with our Constitution, the AGM was held last Saturday 04 July at the Kenso Bowls. With a quorum present, the meeting got underway at about 17:30...

Reports were received from Club Captain Jono Adamson, Treasurer Bren Edghill and Secretary Booth - the up shot being that although last year was disappointing from a playing and financial perspective, the Club spirit is still alive and kicking in a big way...

With that out of the way nominations were called for, and the current Executive was returned unopposed for another season.

Shortly, the Exec will be meeting to determine dates for Rego Day, fees, sponsorship and other cricket matters for the upcoming Summer season - the Club's 14th season...

If you have any queries, suggestions, ideas etc, please feel free to mail me or put a post onto the forum.

All the very best
