Thornbury proposed this years accounts be accepted and also the increase in subscription. This was seconded by Sherdons and all clubs were in favour. The Chairman thanked Bob for his continual work with the accounts.

New team Applications.  No applications have been received.

Election of Officers for 2014  There were no propositions for any of the committee roles (as usual) so the current incumbents would carry on.
