Dear members, We are intending to hold the 2020 Sowerby Angling Society AGM on Wednesday 26th of February at the usual venue;
Thirsk and Sowerby Institute.
Please arrive from 7PM for 7:30 Start.
As usual we will provide a light buffet afterwards and would appreciate if those intending to come could let us know in advance so we can cater accordingly.
This will be quite an important AGM so if you can make it please do come along.
As many of you will be aware Penny and I have been wanting to sit back from running the club and allow some new blood to inject their vigour and ideas. We have had two well respected members come forward with an offer to take over the running of the club from us.
Meet Ian Pincomb and Paul Blakely both long standing members who have the long term interests of the club at heart. It is our intention to offer our resignations at the AGM and hopefully vote Paul and Ian into office. To make this transition run smoothly we have decided on a gradual handover with Penny and I still doing this years renewals /payments to land owners etc as usual and then let Ian and Paul take on these roles for the season after.
If anyone would also like to be involved in helping run the club please let us know and in what capacity you are interested. Preferably before the AGM.
Also if anyone has any issues or topics they would like to talk/debate at the AGM, please let us know so we can add them to the agenda.
