Good morning everyone,
I am emailing today for two reasons. The first is as an additional reminder that adult winter training begins this Sunday and the second is regarding club-player communications.
Adult Winter Training
In order to make it easy to track, the costs of winter training this year have been simplified. Rather than £50 up front, with retrospective negotiations if you were not able to attend many, the committee have decided that it will be pay-as-you-play at £5 per training session, regardless of whether you attend 1 session for 10 minutes or all of them for 3 hours. A register will be taken and those who can't pay on the day will be hounded by our very own club bailiff's, you have been warned!!
Similarly to the main club subscriptions, if you have difficulty finding these funds then please contact Scott Sharp discretely who will work with you.
Those who came to the AGM or connect with us on social media will be aware that the club is in need of new players for the adult teams of any and all ability. If you are new to the game, haven't played in some time and are considering a comeback or simply need to try and burn off some Christmas pudding, then please contact Scott Sharp and come along any Sunday for a no-pressure introduction with some of our social cricketers.
We on the committee are aware that, as a club, we can improve our level of interaction with the members. Thanks to the efforts of our Publicity Officer Matt Spooner we now have an excellent regular newsletter that covers many functions and big news items but this is not the end of our ambitions. We are particularly keen to increase the member feedback loop that currently is limited to chit chat over a beer or extended email conversations.
To that end every Sunday after training has finished at 4pm I will be hosting an open forum for all club members, playing or otherwise, to come and discuss the pressing issues or find out about the difficulties and successes going in at the administration level. This will be held in the clubhouse committee room (or the main clubhouse if it is not booked out) and will be an opportunity to raise topics or ask questions not only to inform anyone who comes along but also to allow individuals to bring ideas to me. For any questions or comments I don't have an answer for I will take them away with me and try to bring the responses to the next weeks meeting.
Please note that we have been and will continue to be happy to listen to any ideas or concerns of the members outside of this forum should anyone wish to contact us in private.
Thanks very much for your time today, I hope to see you around Eversley soon!
