News from the Kernow AGM

A big thank you to all those who braved the weather to come to the Kernow Pétanque Annual General Meeting on Sunday (3 March).

Cornwall region president Graeme Kirkham gave a brief overview of the past year, but focused on the crucial task of promoting pétanque in Cornwall and finding new players.

Pete English gave his Treasurer's report, noting that the region had a smaller balance at the end of the year than at the beginning but had invested in new kit and equipment and had paid for new surfacing for the terrain at the Star Inn.

Playing Officer Andrew Jarvis listed the winners of events in 2018 and outlined the region's achievements in inter-regional events. He also went through the draft calendar for 2019 which will be distributed to players and posted online shortly.

The meeting approved a number of amendments to the Kernow Petanque Association constitution and members also voted to adopt a new Data Privacy policy for the region produced by the region's Secretary, Bill Kingdon.

There were no nominations for officers' posts and the whole of the 2018 Management Committee was re-elected en bloc.

Graeme will be contacting members in the next day or so to check their availability for the three major inter-regional competitions on the calendar: the annual Cornwall V Devon match will take place at a venue in Cornwall on 9 June, a three-way contest between Kernow, Devon and Great Western regions is set for 21 July, and the Pétanque England inter-regional weekend is at Hayling Island, Hampshire, over the weekend of 14-15 September
