2020 AGM ...(with link - click here)

Back in April I told you that we were postponing the AGM until further notice. I have watched other organisations and hockey clubs running AGM's via Zoom and it seems to be working. At the Executive Committee last night we decided to investigate Zoom as an option and we have set a provisional date of 26th August to hold the AGM.

Over the next few weeks we will look at what is involved, how we can manage the voting processes, and if it is a viable option to hold our AGM in this way which we hope it will be.

As always, all roles on the committee will be up for re-election and I would encourage you all to think about what you could contribute to the committee. To help with that I am going to look at all the roles we have and give you a description of what each one involves and the level of committmentt they would need from any one wishing to take them on.

Umpire Radios (from Irish HUA)

We are aware of a few problems that have developed at the end of last season and the start of the current season with some of the UmpireTalk radios, mainly due to natural wear and tear. Of course there are a number that continue to work with no problems.

This notice is just to say that we are working on solution in conjunction with the Provinces as everyone recognises the widespread importance of radio usage for all matches. It is important that we try and get a radio that suits our wider needs as well as ensuring the cost is affordable. For this reason we will be looking to test some options in the next couple of weeks.

If we can agree on a radio then realistically we are probably looking at just after Christmas for their introduction.

Please do not ask to swap games on WhatsApp, Facebook or any other medium. If you are not able to fulfil a fixture then YOU MUST let the relevant appointments secretary know and they will remove you from the game and appoint a replacement.

There are selection committees that make these appointments and umpires are appointed to most games for a number of reasons so we cannot just swap when we need to sorry
