Hanbook survey results
14/05/2016: Clubs were asked if a downloadable pdf file could be a replacement for hard copies of the handbook. Of the 83 clubs that replied, preferences were: 64 pdf file only, 8 pdf plus a few hard copies, and 11 hard copies only. The Handbook Editor will therefore provide both versions, and clubs that so requested will continue to receive hard copies, whilst the pdf will be downloadable from this website for local reference, partial printing, or embedding in a club website.
It would be appreciated if the 70 or so clubs that have not so far indicated a preference would do so by emailing the webmaster now to say if they would be happy with a pdf instead of hard copies.
For clarity, the Club Section of the handbook and the circulation list are output from the website Clubsearch database and supplied by the webmaster to the Handbook Editor for inclusion in the new edition.
East Treasurer – vacancy
12/05/2016: The Treasurer is retiring at the end of this season and East are looking for a volunteer to take on this role, which would be ideal for a Club Treasurer seeking wider responsibilities. There is a steady amount of work throughout the year, and a few hours a week are required to maintain the finances in order. Good organisation and dogged persistence are prerequisites for the job. The Treasurer is also a member of the ERHA Board and attends and contributes to board meetings covering all aspects of hockey in East. If you are interested in finding out more please email me using the webmaster email link above, or contact the East President for a preliminary discussion.
