Merthyr Tydfil Ladies Indoor Bowls Club
On behalf of the above Club 
II would like to show my appreciation to all club members who made cakes, helped in the kitchen, brought raffle prizes, sold raffle tickets, plus the staff at Rhydycar who all worked tirelessly for the two days during the club hosting the first W.I.B. Finals Competitions.  It was a huge success with the help of the spectators who came to support the players.
We certainly gave the Welsh President Mr Barrie Broad ( who is a member of 
M.T.I.B.C)   a good week-end.

Plus Not forgetting the hard work from the  W.I.B.
Executive Committee who arranged the competitions throughout the season.
Many Many Thanks to all

Ann Pike ( Ladies Hon Secretary)

The Chair, Officers and Directors of the Club met earlier this year to set the fees for the forthcoming season. We are already aware that the electricity bill will increase by an amount in excess of £8,000  for next year alone !!It is an amount that cannot be met by members alone and efforts must, and will be made to raise revenue from sources other than our subscriptions...grants, room rental, parties etc. However members will have to contribute to increasing our income. It was felt that raising green fees is not an option at present and so the Membership fee for this season will be set at £50 (a modest increase when you consider the fee in 2000 was £45.)We realise this increase will not be welcomed by all but it is a necessity in the present economic climate.
If anyone has any suggestions as to how we can increase our Stadium income please contact any of the Officers. Organising and arranging extra matches will of course boost our income. Can you consider this? We have one of the best facilities in Wales and despite the price increase we remain one of the most competitive in terms of cost.
Thank you

Peter Brill
