4)    Executive Reports

a)     President

The President brought the board up to date on the situation regarding the secretary.  The police have been contacted and a report will be given on May 28th.  In total it appears that approximately $2600 is missing.

No report.

c)     Secretary

As stated at the AGM it is difficult to get a complete picture of the association and as averages are being entered, bowlers are still being found without a membership.  As of the present date there are 562 members.

All averages have been entered except for Hull and Aylmer.

d)     Treasurer

See attached report.

5)    Other Business

a)     Secretary/Treasurer

The status of the secretary/treasurer was discussed under the President’s report.

b)    Provincial board Meeting

Graham reported on the Board Meeting of the Provincial Association held May 3 in Belleville.  Much of the meeting focused on the CTF SMO.  Many of the directors were not in favour, citing issues such as poor awards program, the lack of a bonding program and the non-inclusionary way the CTF are proceeding (some associations are not members of CTF and therefore have no voice).  In addition many directors felt that holding a meeting so far from the bulk of the bowlers made it very difficult to get buy-in to the decision.

The provincial board will send an email to the CTF expressing the opinions of the board.

c)     CTF SMO

Graham provided his own opinions on the CTF proposal.  In his opinion there are significant problems with the proposal, although he is completely in favour of the concept of a Canadian membership organisation and of it being a single membership.

Graham reported that despite several attempts he had been unable to get together with the WIBC association to discuss the possibility of sending joint delegate.

After some discussion it was agreed that we would not send our own delegate to the CTF AGM and that we would have to live with the decision made there.


Meeting adjourned. 9:35 p.m.
