Welcome Thanks to Chandlers Ford club for hosting us.
Apologies for absence
Minutes of previous EGM (13 October 2021) and matters arising
Secretary / Fixture Secretary reports
Treasurer Report and League Subs See statement below to be done, prepared by Fraser McLeod who is acting as interim treasurer as no one else has offered to take on the role since Robin Williams stood down.
Website Robin Williams wishes to stand down from the webmaster role. He advises that now the website is set up it requires minimal effort to maintain.
Election of officers – The roles of treasurer and webmaster are vacant. We will likely need a new Chairperson as we understand that Chris Priest has been in poor health. Matthew Coldwell (Vice-chair) may wish to take this role (to be confirmed). Malcolm Clarke and Fraser McLeod are willing to continue as Fixtures Sec and League Sec, respectively. Roger Marsh (Grading Officer) is willing to continue in this role despite no longer living in the area.
Planning for the next season a) Do we want a full season, i.e. from October to May? b) Do we want 5-board matches instead of 4 in top divisions? c) How many teams does each club want to field?
League structure – tentatively place teams into five divisions. The SCL committee hope that we will have more teams than this season and that this may avoid relegations this season.
Trophy presentations Note: Robertson Cup, Individual and Rapidplay competitions were not held this season. See League winners table below for 2018-9 and 2022:

The Summer Tournament 2022 begins as its organiser Malcolm Clarke announces the player pairings for the first Round.
The Summer Tournament runs during the summer, and is a 5-round Swiss format between May and September. Usually in the Summer Tournaments, the winner’s name is engraved on the Kooner Cup and receives a replica of the Cup. The organiser is Malcolm Clarke.
The Summer Tournament is usually 5, but sometimes 6 Rounds over the summer months – about a month per Round. The winner receives the Kooner Cup for a year and usually gets to keep a replica. The games are standard play in terms of time control, 90 minutes each player.
