Important update – PLEASE READ

Hi Beachcombers,

I hope you’re all staying healthy and well. Please read the following important information regarding changes to our indoor softball sessions and AGM.

The coronavirus is a pandemic affecting the entire world. It is causing a huge strain on the NHS and is affecting all of us in our daily lives. We all need to do what we can to minimise its spread. Our two remaining indoor softball sessions have been cancelled. I hope you can all understand the reason for doing this and can appreciate that the health of our members, families and loved ones is a top priority.

As it stands, our first outdoor training session will take place on Wednesday 22nd April at 6pm at our field in Preston Park. I’ll keep you informed if this changes.

PLEASE NOTE – Our AGM will still take place this Wednesday 18th March but it will no longer be at the Park View. We will be holding the meeting online. Please read the full information about how to attend this below.

This is a particularly important meeting because we’ll be electing a new club president. I’ll be stepping down from my role as president this year, so if you want to have a say in the club’s leadership for this season and beyond please do make an effort to attend. We’ll also be electing a new treasurer along with other important committee positions. The full agenda will be sent out tomorrow. If you have any questions, comments or concerns in the meantime please let me know.

Annual General Meeting

Wednesday 18th March, 18:30

As mentioned above, we’ll be holding our AGM online to eliminate the need for social contact and do what we can to minimise the spread of coronavirus. We are going to run the meeting using Zoom, an online meeting platform. It is incredibly easy to use, but you do need to get the app on your computer (recommended) or phone (not as good, but usable) BEFORE the meeting. It takes no more than 10 minutes. Below you’ll find:

  • the link for free sign up
  • the link for the meeting

Getting set up: Go to Follow the instructions.

For the actual meeting on Wednesday, you will need to use the link below. Again, incredibly easy, but do ‘arrive’ at least 5 minutes early so you can check your video/audio.

If you have any trouble accessing the meeting:

  1. Try shutting down competing websites; having limited bandwidth is a common problem.
  2. Check to see that you didn’t accidentally leave Zoom open from when you first registered. Quit Zoom completely, then re-click the invitation link.
  3. If all else fails, please send us an email and we’ll do our best to help.

As mentioned previously, this will be a very important meeting to prepare the club for the 2020 season where we will be electing a new president. Please do your best to attend the meeting if possible so you can have your say.

That’s all for now folks!
