22.01.17 – The proposal to implement a 50p per player, per club annual fee at the BCGBA Rules Revision Meeting failed to receive the required two-thirds majority of those voting so the Notice of Motion was defeated.  However, the proposal to increase the Club Fee from £15 to £20 per club was successful and the increase will take immediate effect.  As instructed by our Annual General Meeting, the Merseyside representatives voted against both proposals.
