President’s Report

The president, Nicole Fetzko, reported that due to career moves, she will not be continuing on the Board of Directors for the next season.


            Association Manager’s (AM) Report

The AM presented a current Balance Sheet for the CDTBA accounts as well as a 2005-06 Membership Summary sheet.


6.       Current Agenda Item:  Committee Reports

Tournaments: Pierre Gratton provided the results for this year’s tournaments. The awards and prizes for the tournaments to be prepared in the coming weeks.


Awards:  It was pointed out that the provincial association (OTBA) provided “yearbook” style awards to member local associations in the prior year. It was expected that this year it would do likewise.


Lane Inspections: As there is no longer an active Director in charge, the board discussed the  current situation. McArthur’s lanes had been inspected by the board and presumably sanctioning would be the result. Anik and Aylmer centers had been inspected the previous season, however these 2 centers had been charged  $10 per lane for the process,  but should have been charged $7 per lane. It had been intended to charge only $4 per lane for Anik’s and Aylmer’s inspections this year, however due to circumstances it seems unlikely that these centers will be undergoing inspections for this 2005-06 season . Lane Inspections have been quite a difficult challenge for the board to deal with, and it was decided that the 2006-07 inspections would become a priority. In the case of Anik, no sanctioned leagues exist this season, but the board notes the need to rebate this center $3 per lane or $36.00 for the 2005-05 inspections. In the case of Aylmer, should an honor score be bowled there, the lanes would need to be inspected, however it was decided to wait and see, and to do the 2006-07 inspections instead, at the appropriate time, (Summer 2006, if possible). Aylmer is due a $30 rebate. Some members of the current board believe that contracting out the lane inspection task, as was done in 2004-05, is the way to accomplish this CTF requirement with minimal stress on the dwindling CDTBA board.


Youth: The question of the recently re-discovered scholarship fund has been referred to the CTF/OTBA. It was pointed out that the youth board is still naturally experiencing growing pains.


Nominations: Promoting the board and seeking new directors for next year’s board seems likely to be very important this year. The President, and the Association Manager have indicated that they will not be present for the next session. Marg Willis has agreed to be a contact point for new candidates for the board.


7.       Current Agenda Item:  Other Business


The Annual General Meeting (AGM) was briefly discussed – to be held Sunday April 9th, 2006 at 11:00AM.


AGM(CTF): CTF’s AGM will be held in Montreal April 22nd, 2006. Helga Sarazin and Marg Willis are potential candidates for representing the CDTBA.
