You are invited to a meeting at Coolhurst in the bar area 6.30 – 7.30 May 8th.
This is the follow on from the meeting of parents of squash juniors that took place about three weeks ago.
I am sending out the invitation this time as the person who would normally do it is away. I am writing this as an ordinary squash member.
As there are many squash members interested in the matter at hand – the management of junior squash coaching and related issues – the invitation is being extended to anyone who is interested. This might also help to deal with the many questions that have arisen as a result of the rather puzzling email from the Squash Committee sent to squash members this week.
I realise that 6.30 is a bit early for many people. Coming along part way through is fine.
I will be posting updates on our discussion forum
I would encourage people who are interested to post comments there so all this community can see them. There have been many very clear and impressive expressions of views and I would suggest that we all continue to keep our comments polite. I also hope that people on all sides of the argument will feel free to comment.
I think it would be useful if you could reply to let me now if you are planning to attend. The more people, the less the voice of this meeting can be ignored. The more people we know are attending, the more an invitation to the squash committee to join us to explain itself might be accepted.
I know a lot of people have been pushing in the right direction and I’d particularly like to thank Phil Hull, Barry Knight and Andy Watson.
Finally a personal view – Andy as squash secretary could soon have this all sorted out if his proposals were supported. I think it would be useful if we could find some way of ensuring he gets backing. How is maybe something for us all to think about.
Nothing I write is in confidence. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you think might be interested.
All comments welcome.
