PRESENTATION DINNER 2018.......Please respond
A circular was sent out to member clubs asking if they could confirm (one way or the other) numbers for the above dinner.
10-12 clubs have already advised that they WILL NOT be attending, so we urge clubs to advise WHICH CLUBS ARE GOING TO BOOK PLACES, as in the forms sent to clubs the deadline for tickets is the 1st October 2018.
We do have to have a minimum of 100 persons attending to make this a viable option, so please let the General Secretary know YES or NO.
Is your club hoping to attend the Annual Presentatioin Dinner?
Now that the playing season is over and the grounds being 'closed down' , it's time to think of other things happening within the OCA - the next main event being the Presentation Evening on Friday 9th November 2018.
Full details of this event has been sent out to all the member clubs and put on the website, so it would be greatly appreciated if those hoping to attend could advise me of approximate numbers, and should your club decide that you won't be attending
this year it would be helpful to know, so either way, could you please give this your urgent attention?
Remember, this is not just for clubs who are there to collect awards, it is an evening for every club, every team, every member of the OCA with friends and families, so we do encourage you to come along and enjoy the evening.
Forum thread on the 'Lower Divisions proposed changes document'...
A thread has been started on the OCA Forum regarding the above and we are encouraging everyone to make their own positive comments, but before you do, please ensure that you have read the document fully, don't just follow the comments of others as this will not be at all helpful to the Executive when they meet to discuss the next step forward.
If you havn't seen the document, it can be uploaded from the 'Administration' section on the OCA website.
If you prefer, please email your comments and suggestions direct to the OCA General Secretary.
Lower Divisions Proposed Changes document
A document has been sent to all club contacts/secretaries and the captains of the 1st and 2nd teams, which is aimed mainly at the lower leagues to address some of the concerns that clubs are facing.
We need to stress that any changes will need to be agreed, but the Executive considers changes are essential for the future of the league.
This document can be seen under 'Administration' on the OCA website and we urge as many as possible to read this and offer any positive suggestions which will be discussed at the next meeting of the OCA Executive, so your comments should be sent to the General Secretary by the 30th September.
