JHB Accepts Articles of Operation

1) We have a new Articles of Operation, as it was approved 13 to none, with one person undecided. Well done to all. Dale will circulate the final version soon.

2) The principle of rotation gathered (7 confirmed votes with one additional vote unconfirmed) while the principle of elections lost out with only 6 votes. In the next few months, we’ll try and work out a decent and fair rotational system, including suggestions such as Markus’s credit system (I see merit in the idea, and, for example, running two handicap tournaments within a 6 months period would be equivalent to being the asset sec for six months and would count as such in the rotational system). This will, of course, have to be approved by all voting members.

3) In the interim, we do need to fill the roles of Asset Sec. and Information Officer. Ben Gale has
kindly volunteered to do one role, and we need someone else to volunteer for the other role. At the moment, it seems fair that the rotational roster would have me and Dave at the bottom (i.e. at the back of the line, so to speak) of the roster. When Ben and whomever else finish, they would then go to the bottom of the roster and Dave and I would move up two spaces. So, this is the chance to get your service to the club fulfilled early and not have to worry about it for some years. After Ben and whomever else, the rotational system will decide who gets to do the dirty work for the second half of 2006 and beyond.

4) A complete how-to guide for running the club should be up on the website within the next couple of days.

5) Thanks to all who participated in this long but important process.
