Increase n the Monthly Subscription for Members

It has been brought up in the 2018 Club AGM to pass a resolution to increase the monthly subscription for the biggest categories of Member to HK$1,850, representing a significant 19% increase of HK$300 pr month.  The resolution has been voted down.

The Club Chairman Mr. Mike Wood has told me that there might be some element of frustration in the Lawn Bowls Section culminating in many of the LBS members voting against the proposed subscript increase, with a failure of many section members to properly understand the financial affairs/situation of the Club.

Mr. Mike Wood suggested to arrange his financial officials to attend part of our AGM on 21st March 2019 and think that would be a good way to provide some information to the LBS members.
