Provision of Food After Friendly Games


The question of what kind of food is to be provided in future seasons was discussed at the 2019 AGM.


It was decided that from 2020 a light snack/nibbles instead of a full meal will be provided at home games on a Wednesday evening.  Opposing teams for friendly matches have been informed of the change. The rink fee for TMX players has been reduced to £3 for both home and away fixtures.


There is no change to arrangements for weekend fixtures. NB THIS HAS BEEN SUPERSEDED BY ARRANGEMENTS PUT IN PLACE BY THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE FOR 2021.


Arrangements for 2022 will be discussed at the AGM in October. It is noted that a number of clubs have decided not to provide hot meals after friendly matches in the future, irrespective of Covid rules.



Club-wide Emails


We have experienced some rogue emails purporting to be from members.


In order to mitigate the risk of this happening it has been decided that any club-wide emails will be sent by blind copy. This will result in the full address list not being revealed to the recipient.

Website Gallery Page

 

The website hosting company have increased their charge significantly. The only way to avoid the increase is to keep the page headings to a maximum of five. The Gallery [ photos ] page has therefore been deleted.
