Team Malaga Committee Meeting

Minutes of the Management Meeting held on 13th January 2015


Item No





Team Selection and Morale

John Carr, Brian Todd & Margaret Kain

BT and JC felt that the Gents 10 team members and 2 reserves needed to hone their skills and their performance had been rather disappointing today.  MK appreciated the 2 reserves turning out to play and that their achievements needed to be reflected in the team selection.  Performance had been good and the purpose of the day, team working, had been achieved.

A further practice session will be held on Friday morning, 30th January.  The Spain team will practice in the afternoon.



John Carr, Jenny Aldridge plus Marshalls

There was no support for a parade similar to the Nationals.

Malaga players who need team shirts should advise Captains ahead of time.  The Ladies team is fully equipped.


Gala Dinner

Amber Dineen & Sue Walker

It was decided that the best venue for the gala dinner on the Sunday evening would be the hotel, the Gran, La Cala, where the Spain team is staying.  Accommodation is a special price of 29 euros a night and it is possible that Team Malaga members could also stay overnight.  SW is to check on this and also the possible provision of a meal for the gala dinner.



John Carr, Craig Lewis & Terry Morgan

JC will send a press release to all local newspapers, a poster to all Club Federation Reps, and placed publicity on the internet.  A notice to all radio stations will be sent out during the week leading up to the match.  A programme will be prepared to include sponsors. Time will be allocated during the 2 days for Avalon (Alison and Barry Dare) and also their window and door company to promote their services.



Lyn Down, Craig Lewis

It was decided not to run a raffle as there was no further need for funding.


Membership Fees

for FAB Regional

John Carr & Jackie Wright

The Captains with AD's help will collect the regional fee of 18 each on the Friday morning practice, prior to the 2 day event.  This way, everyone playing will have paid their membership fees.  Club reps will collect other members' fees in the usual way.  The monies will not be sent off straightaway.  JW was unable to attend the meeting.
