I would appreciate some feedback on the desirability of continuing the circulation of the EKCO Newsletter which is now in its 15th year.
It seems that in these days of electronic communication, which of course is virtually instant, the EKCO has become somewhat old fashioned and perhaps redundant. Frequently the feeling is that the newsletter is merely repeating what is already on the website.
Draw for R2 of Cup (Repeated from issue 2)
Rising Sun v H Bay Gulls
Whitfield B v The Vale
Brown Jug C v East Kent
Brown Jug D v Whitfield A
Brown Jug A bye
Brown Jug B bye
Brown Jug E bye
On the subject of the draw for various rounds of Cup / Plate matches I have been asked in past years and again this year.
Q How is the draw made?
A Drawing numbered balls out of a bag.
Q Who does the draw?
Q Who witnesses the draw?
A Usually my wife.
I am open to suggestions as to how you would like this changed.
(a) do we have a representative from each club present?
(b) is the committee to make the draw at a special meeting?
(c ) perhaps an informal meeting at a specified venue where anyone interested could turn up?
Again I would like some feedback.
With the increase in the number of teams this year and the consequent move into three divisions, clubs were left with fewer league matches.
I take responsibility for suggesting that cup and plate matches be played over two legs in an effort to build up to the number of matches played in previous seasons.
Mutterings and murmurings indicate that the whole thing has not been regarded as a resounding success.
At least we, the committee, were prepared to try something different.
It is not possible to change the format in the middle of the season so we will have to live with it for the current season.
Doubtless it will be thrashed out at the 2010 AGM.
