At the dawn of 2022, the League’s officers would like to wish all MSBL bowlers, their families and friends a very happy New Year.
Everyone hopes we will be able to get back to some kind of pre-pandemic normal, but there remains doubt as to what the new Covid variant might have in store for – although the early signs are thankfully hopeful.
What is not in doubt is that there is a need for new faces on the team that runs the League in 2022.
For Fixture Secretary Ric Hudson and Vice-Chairman David Evans have informed the general secretary that they will not be standing for election at the League’s AGM – whenever it is held.
Many of you will have read in the Christmas message on this website that the League’s officers are monitoring the Covid situation very closely with a view to making plans for 2022.
And they will be making a decision before next weekend as to whether the AGM goes ahead in person on Monday 17th January, is held virtually that night or even delayed a little.
Given the rule change proposals that are due to be voted on at the annual meeting, a delay would give clubs more time to assess playing numbers for a forthcoming season that is scheduled to start in April.
Member clubs will be kept informed directly by email of any firm decisions, but for now, keep safe and here’s sending everyone very best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.
