Club Updates – Help days and subsidies

Help days and subsidies
At our most recent committee meeting we discussed help days and subsidies. As a club we want members to enjoy the activities and clinics we put on but felt we needed to clarify what is expected so it is fair for everyone.
HELP DAYS: All members are expected to do a help day as part of their membership. If they do this they will get subsidies for clinics and their prelim entries paid for area competitions. It was decided after much discussion to make this an absolute minimum of 4 hours. Once a member has done their minimum 4 hours, they will get the subsidies.
HELPERS AT AREA COMPETITIONS: These are often difficult for individuals to find especially new members. It was agreed that if someone helped at an area event this will go towards their help day. If they had to travel out of the local area they will get travel expenses paid and their travel time will count towards their hours.
IF SOMEONE HELPS FOR YOU if a non-member / family member/friend helps that does not count towards the members help day. Instead, there will be a helper of the year award for all helpers that will be awarded at the AGM.
SUBSIDIES: It has been agreed that 2018 subsidies will be a max of £3 for the hour so if sharing or having a lesson for part of an hour, members will receive their proportion of this amount.
PAYMENT OF SUBSIDIES: A maximum of £50 subsidies has been set for the year per member for lessons and clinics. All lessons/clinics will be charged at the full price at the time of the lesson and the subsidy will be handed out at the end of the year when the help hours have been totalled and checked.
PRELIM FEES and CHAMPIONSHIP FEES will be paid at the end of the year. This is subject to help day having been completed.
