            President’s Report

                 The President, Nickie Fetzko provided a written report, some points are:

1.       Helga Sarazin has expressed willingness to join the board.

2.       Personal contact has been made with most of last year’s leagues.

3.       Attempting to meet with McArthur management.

4.       Expressed issues re: “CTF’s sanctioned ??” Personal Insurance Supplier soliciting.

5.       Financial suggestions regarding managing/investing CDTBA’s rather large Bank account.

More discussion required re this, as well as CDTBA’s budget.


            Association Manager’s (AM) Report

                 The AM had little to report other than he was awaiting the return of Sanction forms and cards for

                data entry into PBMCTF – the association software.


6.       Current Agenda Item:  Committee Reports

Pierre Gratton spoke briefly about Tournaments citing Feb 18-19 2006 for Adults,

and Feb 11-12 2006 for Youth, as likely dates. Averages used will most likely be those as of Jan 1st, 2006.


Graham Crate has accepted the challenge of co-ordinating the lane inspection process. In the coming weeks

hopefully Graham will come to terms with the equipment and the process. Mark Gehring has had that role in the

last few years.



7.       Current Agenda Item:  New Business

The CDTBA needs to come to terms with the Governance Strategy of Youth Leagues.

 CTF policy needs to be studied, so that Youth Leagues within CDTBA comply.

The President considers this issue to be of great importance, and considerable study

and planning need to happen before the Youth League Component can become a viable

and sustaining entity within the Association. In this new world of the CTF, the CDTBA’s

board of directors has a much greater responsibility to ensure that the YOUTH League

aspect of the Association is managed correctly. This issue will be evolving quickly in the next

month or so.
