Wendy takes on the province hot seat

AS intimated last week, the ladies section, and the Border Province AGMs took place simultaneously, but in different parts of the ice rink, writes Alistair Lindsay.

Wendy Henderson took on the presidency of the ladies, in place of Marion Pate, whose two eventful years were up.

Nina Clancy has been coerced into the vice-presidency, and Glynnice Lauder’s secretarial talents, well established by umpteen years in the job with Coldstream CC, will be appreciated by the membership over the next umpteen years.

Lucy Tile will continue at the treasury of this formidable organisation.

David Kerr is now province president, having been badged by predecessor John Hutchinson, who took the province through an eventful year in fine style.

Bill Byers of Earlston CC is the new vice-president.

Bill Cleghorn was unanimously re-elected en bloc as secretary/treasurer – his ongoing administration and dedication to this task is almost legendary.

A new slant on the running of the Border League was given a fair hearing, but was turned down as possibly being a bit divisive.

Agrii’s sponsorship of the league is increasing and is greatly appreciated.

The draw was made for the coming season with Roxburghe, Glendale, Lammermuir, Lauderdale, Foulden, Swinton, Jedburgh, Greenlaw, Yester, and Duns in section one, with any remaining clubs not mentioned safely assuming that they are in section two.

The draw was also made for the Border Chainsaw & Lawnmower-sponsored Harry Hogg knockout, and will be listed next week, with one or two tantalising club AGMs thrown in.
