4. Chairpersons Report:

Presented by Colin Clements.

‘First of all, I would like to welcome everyone here tonight and I would like to thank Brian Bonnar (in his absence) for organizing the venue. I would primarily like to thank the committee for the continued smooth running of the CATTL in 2015/2016. There were a few issues regarding the fulfilling of fixtures, particularly in Division 1, but what’s new? Gary’s report will cover the successful teams and individual trophy winners for 2015/16.

 

As I note every year, the League does not just run itself and I hope all those participating appreciate the work that is done on their behalf. My thanks go especially to Match Secretary Steve, Secretary Gary and Treasurer Paul for taking on most of the day-to-day work of the League Committee. If I have left anybody out, my apologies.

 

I will not duplicate the reports to come, but I think it was another good year of competition in the CATTL. I would like to congratulate all those who won either a team or individual trophy in 2015/16 – and if that doesn’t include you (and as usual, it doesn’t include me) – there is always next year.

 

Our annual dinner and prize-giving was at the Lodge Hotel in Coleraine for the fourth successive year, somewhat earlier than usual on 08 April 2016. The evening started with a minutes silence, as a mark of respect for Alvis Wright, our late President, who sadly died not long before our dinner. Many thanks go to Mike, who said a few words in memory of Alvis. The numbers attending the dinner were lower again this year, but the suitability of the venue, helpfulness of the staff, and quality of the food were once again excellent. Paul even managed to get something to eat, when he finally arrived! Thanks to Brian Orr for organising the venue, Norman for his role as Acting Trophy

Secretary and Steve for setting the quiz. As is now tradition, money raised through the ballot was donated to charity. Approximately 200 pounds was raised and used to sponsor Dawid Sulkowski who ran the Belfast Marathon for CLIC Sargent. Thanks to all who generously supported this worthy cause. He did run past me (I was a spectator only) so I know he got to the Whitewell at least.

 

Without being ageist, when we come to elect the Committee later in this meeting, I would suggest we attempt to lower the average age. There are a number of us who have been involved in some capacity in the league committee on-and-off for over thirty years! Regardless of who is elected later, I wish the incoming committee every success for the new season. I think a key priority for it should be to get new clubs into the league (or bring back old ones). I would, as always, strongly encourage all clubs to be represented at the league meetings in the coming year. Here’s to another enjoyable year of friendly competition’.
