The OSRA AGM will be held on Monday 27 June at 19:30, the venue will once again be the Harwell Cricket Pavilion (OX11 0DF should get you there or thereabouts).
We are still chasing up the return of the league trophies in time for them to be engraved before the AGM so they can be presented at the AGM so if your club has any of the summer or winter league trophies please could they be returned to Alan Gilmour at Abingdon Squash Club (Email : firstname.lastname@example.org)
The outstanding trophies are as follows:
Div 5 Brize Norton
Div 5 Henley
OSRA urgently needs volunteers to help on the almost non -existent committee, up to now the committee has been made up on the whole by Abingdon and Harwell members.
At present the committee is made up of
Dik Third – Chairman
Alan Gilmour and Tax Assist Accountants -Treasury role, this was meant to be a temporary stand in option until someone came forward and volunteered for the role but to date nobody has come forward
Matt Grant – Player registrations
Please can you think about volunteering in some capacity - ask not what your county can do for you, what can you do for your county - to paraphrase JFK. I've often been asked what such roles entail: the answer is the same as for any committee. In simple terms, it's what you make of it. It can be as little as an hour a week, or it can be the first step towards world domination, depending on your ambitions.
A nomination for Chairman will be required this year and it would be good if someone could volunteer for the treasury role as Alan has a young family and limited time to devote to this role. We are also still looking for a secretary and someone to do the minutes at this year AGM – we did have a very kind offer from Brize Norton for 2015-2016 but, due to a proliferation of regional meetings and the focus on the IT transition, normal services were never established.
Please give some serious thought to volunteering to enable squash and racketball in the county to be successful. Please contact Alan or Dik if you want any further info on the roles. A reminder that a representative from each club is required to attend the AGM.
