Sup guys

We are coming to the end of the year and will be holding an AGM in the not
too distant future where we will vote in next year's committee and you can
have your say about the club.

If you think you're friendly, responsible, approachable and organised and
feel that you have the skills to fill any of the roles listed below, then
you should definitely think about standing for a position! If you don't
think you're those things, but others think you are then you should also
consider standing. If you know you aren't any of these things and don't
even want to be part of the committee anyway then you should still come
along as there may well be free cookies and you can give us your feedback
on how you think this year has gone and how we can improve for next year.

Here is a description of each position as well as the name of the person
who currently holds it so that you know who to talk to if you're interested:

*President *(Matt Everett)

(Monday and Thursday nights), day trips and weekend trips. Is the
main liaison with Sport Swansea and chairs committee meetings, providing

meetings and booking accommodation for weekend trips (incl. liaison with

and damage inspection as well as having somewhere safe and large enough to
keep it all. For this role having a car is very useful
