Present: Rob, Jus, Tom,

HOS Today my entire (work)
team is travelling to Newcastle ahead of our Sales Conference at Slaley Hall
tomorrow. Most of them will be in the bar by 6pm, and there's a team meal at
8pm. As I don't want to let my (Bunky's) team down on only the second game
of the season, I'm going to play, and then immediately jump in my car at 9pm to
drive 245.8 miles (according to the AA website!) - probably arriving at about
1am in the morning. For this display of dedication I will receive a HOS
point - for not coming in the bar afterwards. I could have chosen to not
turn up, let the team down, and not get any HOS points - so in these
circumstances, I am being penalised for showing dedication to my team.
It's a tongue-in-cheek whinge as I know there will be many people with more HOS
points than me, but it highlights that there is some injustice with the current
system that needs correcting. I may even appeal! - Ben Tranter.
Should an extra HOS be allocated for an unsuccessful HOS appeal?
MOM votes vs. appearance. How long do you need to be on the pitch?
Awards. Existing Awards remain:
Player of the Year - votes/game only allowed to miss 3 games, starting 6 players
Non-starting Player of the Year - Votes/game no limit on games played,
non-starting squad players only.
but add new awards for:
Sub of the year. Votes/game for ANYONE that comes on as a sub. No games limit.
Whole squad allowed.
Starter of the year. Votes/game for ANYONE that starts. No games limit. Whole
How about a couple of new awards to help boost the goal scoring tally for each
Top goals from a defence & midfield position, I will guess that the strikers
pretty much have their own in the top goal-scorer award.
Should it be from the games in your own team or to cover all games you play in?
Some people will play more as a sub so to keep it fair maybe it should be from
your starting team only that count?
Social / Football HOS. 25p a point now we are HOS happy?
MOM Voting. Have to give 6 points or just 1. It needs to be
consistent for Player of the Year.
Carried. Have to
award 6 points in total next season. 1,1,1,1,1,1 3,3 2,2,2
1,2,3 or any combination as long as it totals 6 points.
£ subs. Will review once league entry and fee's announced.
I think Shenley should provide a vegan alternative to pork scratchings - James
Sean - Unfair voting
patterns. Some people do not take voting seriously which has an effect on
the overall Player of the Year award. Currently if you come on as a sub
and get 1 vote the game counts against your average. You do not have the
same amount of time in a game as a starting player. Players that sub are
often penalised for making the effort to sub.
Accepted. New for
2008 season. You can only vote for starting 6 players, however should
a 1st Sub come on as a sub they can obtain votes. A starting player
from any team is not entitled to votes should they come on as a sub, only if
they start. These games will therefore not be counted and not have any
impact on their Votes/Game average for Player of the Year.
Jus - Everyone should have Team haircut or goatee beard.
Sean - What to do with Excess club funds throughout the year.
Jus - Setting up Bunky Chollox FC as a Charity or Limited Company.
Community and Tax incentive possibility.
Neil - Bunky's timeshare. Invest excess funds in timeshare.
Chris/Danny/Darryl - can't remember who started it, anyway, weekend away playing
in football tournament.
Other HOS penalties. Review.
Meeting adjourned, beer and
