NB This is not a compulsory meeting


But, if you would like to have your views heard, send along a representative from your team. The aim of the meeting is to prepare some necessary rule changes to be presented to the YVA AGM in June.

It has been a difficult season for us and the rules circa 2007 have been seriously tested. It is only when rules are tested that we can find out if they are any good. We are happy with  the majority of the rules as they stand but some need a little fine tuning to make them more relevant and need modifying slightly to make our application of the rules simpler and our lives a little easier. 

Items not included on the agenda will not be discussed at the meeting. 

Doug Lawson & Glenn Wraith, YVA League Secretaries
