Although I wasn't able to attend the AGM of the Kinross Curling Trust on Sunday, Skip Cottage Curling did have a blogspy present! The blogspy reports:
There were 336 founder members by the start of AGM, and some 120 of these attended the AGM. Apparently Perth and Kinross Council will consider the plans for the National Curling Academy tomorrow (November 18). Some involved, ie the Council's Development Quality Manager Nick Brian, have recommended approval (see story here and here).
The business plan has 800 members in the first year (rising to 900) with a membership fee of £25. On this basis the Centre should be showing a profit by year three.
There were two last minute nominations prior to the AGM - Robert Anderson (Dollar and Devonvale ) and Sheila Harley (Dunfermline Ladies) who is Chair of Kinross Curling School.
There were some difficulties with the voting for the six trustee places, but once these were resolved the successful candidates were Bob Anderson, Willie Young, Jamie Montgomery, Robin Niven, Sheila Harley and Mary Morgan. These join the Royal Club's nominated trustees, Colin Grahamslaw, Bob Kelly and Bob Tait. There is a photo of the trustees here.
Unsuccessful were Sandy Braid, Malcolm Strang Steel and Robert Anderson.
A priority for the trustees now is to firm up on the project funding.
Thanks to SCC's blogspy who prefers to remain anonymous.
