The Executives Committee’s decision not to increase membership fees this year was endorsed by the meeting as was their decision to apply a small increase to players insurance fees. The Executive Committee propose to increase the cost of playing insurance from £20 to £25 this is due to the loss incurred by the Club due to increase insurance fees.
The Executive Committee recognizes that there may be financial strain on players at the beginning of each year and have proposed to offer the following deal to make payments easier for players;

Annual Membership for 1;
Playing Insurance for 1;
2 tickets to the Club Annual Awards Night (Burrendale Hotel (15th February); and
1 ticket for the 600 Club draw.

4 monthly payments of £50 paid by standing order from January-April

Players please contact Cillian Keavney to set your payment up.

Life membership is to remain at £300 for another year but the Committee also intends to increase this in 2009. Members should be encouraged to avail of the current Life membership rate before the planned increase.
