MINUTES OF 2017/18. 3rd DELEGATE LEAGUE MEETING
MONDAY 19th FEBRUARY 2018
The above was held at Cambridge Snooker Centre at 7.30pm it was attended by Mick White(Vice-Chairman/Delegate Whittlesford) Tony Carr (Record Secretary/Delegate Cambridge Snooker Centre) Andy Plumb (Treasurer/Delegate Newnham) Peter Johnson (General Secretary) and Dan Locke (Competitions Assistant), apologies were received from John Benson (Delegate Bottisham) and Colin Denny (Delegate Sawston).
The Treasurer advised that we had during the period 28/11/17 to 19/02/18 income of £257.50 expenditure of £34.80 leaving our bank balances at £1856.54. Debtors stand at £1375.50 which includes this year’s sponsorship.
The General Secretary had little to report other than the Saffron Walden Snooker Challenge is scheduled to take place on the 22nd April 2018 at Cambridge SC. He also asked if thought could be given to replacements for The President and Chairman due to Tony French’s retirement.
The Record Secretary reported on Division 1 Billiards which saw for the first time for many years a handicapped situation, it proved to be very successful as only 765 points separated the first and last teams which equates to 12.75 points per player per match, which compared to Division 2 who had elected to play from scratch showed a difference of 4499 points between first and last teams which is the equivalent of 75 points per player per match, unfortunately the inequality of the 2 systems is very apparent. All who played in Division 1 appear to have enjoyed it and liked the open draw. All Billiards teams have entered the Ranji which starts on Tuesday 20th Feb 2018, the Muratti and Tony French so far have attracted entries of 12 in each. The Snooker Individual Cup competitions are all on schedule. Throughout the Snooker Divisions there are a number of matches outstanding but Division 1 is by far the biggest offender which if not played could have a big impact on the championship and relegation situation, we do not have to name the teams as they all know who they are so please give this top priority and get them played, Tony will be contacting them individually as well. Since our last meeting NCI 2 have withdrawn from Division 3 and all frames have been deducted.
A number of Billiards issues were discussed but due to the poor turnout of delegates will have to remain inconclusive to await a further meeting.
Meeting Closed at 9.10 pm
Next Meeting Monday 11th Tune 2018 (ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING)

The General Secretary advised that Tony French had retired as Chairman with immediate effect and would resign his Presidency at the end of the current year and would no longer be available as a player. Tony’s involvement in our League has been since 1979 and over this period was undertaken numerous roles, we wish him well in his retirement. The G.S. also reported on the Bert Charge which took place on the 1st October 2017, the County Cup into which we entered 2 Billiards Teams and The Norfolk Challenge Trophy into which we entered 1 Billiards Team. John Benson enquired why changes were made to Division 1 Billiards Playing format at such short notice when a format had already been agreed; he was comfortable as were all present to the reasoning and explanation which has enabled the League to continue without any loss of teams which was the primary objective. Handbooks were distributed to all present those who have not yet received them can collect them from Cambridge SC.
The Record Secretary reported that despite several blips League matches at both Snooker and Billiards were on schedule, due mainly to the success of WhatsApp in creating ease of communication between captains and clubs.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT CUP AND COMPETITION ENTRIES ARE DUE ON THE 1st DECEMBER IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY ATTENDED TO THIS PLEASE GIVE IT YOUR URGENT ATTENTION.
Meeting closed 8.30 pm

2017 BERT CHARGE MEMORIAL BILLIARDS TOURNAMENT SUNDAY 1st OCTOBER @ CSC.
Bert Charge Memorial Billiards Trophy
Sponsored by Cherry Automatics
The above took place on the 1st October 2017 at Cambridge Snooker Centre and attracted 20 players from across East Anglia the same amount as last year. Last year’s runner-up Finlay Laing from Cambridge was this year’s winner and the runner-up was the plate winner of the last 2 years Ray Wood from Essex. Dave Nichols from Norwich won the Plate from a resurgent Keith Lloyd of Cambridge who showed some of his old form.
The standard of play was very good Dave Nichols had the best break with 102 he also had 2 of 85 and an 81, Finlay recorded on 84, eight further breaks over 50 were recorded and another 18 over 30.
Being a handicapped event several matches were decided by some very small margins maybe those on the receiving end can reverse it next year.
Finlay nominated Ward C2 at Addenbrookes Hospital as his Charity as they gave great care to a close friend of his, we will send a donation to them.
It was noticeable that the event was played in good spirit and friendship as always and thanks must be given to our Sponsors, Cambridge Snooker Centre and not to forget Judith Lloyd who aided the TD in helping it to keep running smoothly.
Thank you all for taking part and look forward to seeing you again on the first Sunday in October 2018.

Hon. General Secretary
