Proposed rule changes

Rule 3.10 –  The annual general meeting shall be in session if at least twenty eligible members are present at the appointed time.
Change to: …at least fifteen eligible members, of which a minimum of seven are existing Committee members, are present…
Reason:  asa guidance is that a quorum should be more than 5 members of the club and we have approximately 110 eligible members.  The AGM has been moved to a Sunday morning in order to reach the twenty members we require to hold the meeting.  By reducing the number to fifteen this will give us more flexibility in the future to have an AGM in the evening if members wish to do so.

Rule 3.6 –  A special general meeting shall be called at the discretion of the Committee or on the written request of not less than twenty members who are eligible to vote.
Change to: … fifteen members…
Reason: to be in line with the change above

Rule 3.7 –  A special general meeting shall be quorate if at least twenty eligible members are present at the appointed time.
Change to: … fifteen eligible members…
Reason: to be in line with the changes above
