Membership to date is down from last year’s total of 707 bowlers. Currently there are 624 registered bowlers. The AM reported that the first CTF shipment of cards had arrived several weeks before Christmas and that he had intended that all our leagues would have them in their hands before the Christmas break, however one league’s cards were being temporarily withheld due to a financial complication, and one league’s cards were temporarily overlooked.

Lane Inspections: Graham Crate reported that McArthur’s Lanes were successfully inspected Sunday Nov 20th, 2005. Graham Ginsberg, Marg Willis, Nicole Fetzko, Marc Dumontier, Mark Gehring, Ed Zabarauskas and bowler Ian Macpherson participated in the process. McArthur was invoiced and a cheque for the amount of $224.00 was presented to the AM. The necessary documentation was being prepared to be sent to CTF. Next on the agenda were going to be the remaining centers of Aylmer and Hull (possibly).


      Tournaments: Pierre Gratton presented this year’s tournament registration form. Point by point discussion ensued, points were clarified and corrections suggested. Director volunteers were solicited for help during the event with Nicole Fetzko volunteering to work on posters as well as helping during the event. Pierre Gratton assumed as well, during this meeting, the role of Tournament Manager for the YOUTH tournament, with Rheal Proulx being volunteered as a Tournament Director.


Coaching: Helga Sarazin reported on her recent trip to Kingston for a Coach’s Training clinic. There was a discussion which followed suggesting that the CDTBA could sponsor a level 1 coach training clinic at McArthur possibly around March 4th. Fees of $100 per person as well as the teacher’s expenses would be covered by the CDTBA, with a nominal fee, eg $20, being charged to the bowlers who would be participating. The details of this endeavor would need to be finalized.


Youth: Elections were held on November 12th, 2005, and a slate of youth directors was elected. It was suggested that some start-up and governance issues were being experienced by this new board.
