AGM Postponement

Members are advised that the Annual General

Meeting previously notified and scheduled for

7.30pm on Thursday 25th May 2017 is postponed

until further notice.

The Board is currently in ongoing discussions with

the Landlord with respect to the financial position

of the Club and expects to be able to call a

meeting and make an announcement to Members

within the next few weeks.

This has become necessary as a result of our cash

flow position becoming impacted by the greater

than expected reduction in Membership

subscription renewals. Despite an uptake of 59

new members so far in 2017, we have realised an

overall net loss of 128 Members at the renewal

deadline of 28th April 2017.

In addition, the number of Members who have

decided to go to a lower paying category or have

elected to pay their annual subscription by

monthly payments has increased substantially

leading to further immediate financial pressure.

We would request that Members allow this activity

to progress over the coming weeks before drawing

any conclusions or creating rumours within or

external to our Club.

The Board

When every revenue stream is weakening that's not a good sign

I imagine there aren't a lot of variable costs at the club - the big costs will stay while revenue leaks out

That's not 'creating a rumour', it's quashing them with factoids.

A bitter rival's fortunes are going down the toilet and they're picking up all the disgruntled members. What's not to like about that situation if you're Eastern?

Why are they bitter rivals? Purely because of the member exodus?

Proximity would be my bet.

I'm not sure eastern, given the clubs history, would be excited about competition in the little leagues though. They used to compete with Kew, Greenacres and riversdale.
