Advanced notice of IOMSRA End of Season Celebration and AGM to be held on Friday 30th July 2021 @ 7pm at JAKS Tap Room
The Isle Of Man Squash Rackets Association Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 30th July 2021 starting at 7pm. We have booked the Tap Room at JAKS and along with the AGM we will be celebrating the fact that we have completed the 2020-21 IOMSRA Squash season despite 2 interruptions by lockdowns. I am told by squash players ‘across’ that they are very envious that we have competed a season of competitive squash despite the threat of COVID.
Do make every effort to attend this End of Season Celebration, JAKS will provide food and of course drink. So do put this date in your diary and make every effort to attend.
If you are interested in joining the IOMSRA Committee that would be great, let one of the existing Committee members know and I am sure that they will be able to tell you more about the various positions on the Committee.
Two positions on the Committee will need to be filled at the AGM as the current occupants will not be standing for re-election. The posts are those of League Secretary currently held by Steve Baker and Press Secretary currently held by Fiona Baker. These are key positions and really do need to be filled.
The League Secretary is responsible for organising the IOMSRA squash leagues. The Press Secretary is responsible for writing articles to be published in the local press and on the IOMSRA Website and Facebook sites. If you download the PDF document shown below it tells you a bit more about these posts and the responsibilities the holders have.
Please do seriously consider if you would have the energy and ability to do these jobs. Steve and Fiona Baker would be happy to talk to you about the jobs and give you lots of support when you first start doing the job.
I have also attached a PDF copy of the current League Rules, these can only be changed at the IOMSRA AGM. You may think the rules can be improved in someway or you have concerns or issues with the rules. The AGM Is the time to raise any issues and with the agreement of the members change them. So if you would like to highlight issues than please raise this with the League Secretary or another Committee member to see if the amendment would have the support of the Committee and Members.
Finally I have attached a copy of the IOMSRA Season Schedule for the upcoming season (2021-2022). This Schedule specifies the weeks that League Fixtures, Tournaments and Breaks for holidays will take place during the season. This document will help you to know the structure of the season.
Do please familiarise yourself with these documents as they are important to planning and organising the upcoming season.
