The 2005 Annual General Meeting of CUPC will be held at 4 pm in Teaching Rm A, Robinson College. Nominations for each committee positions are shown below, with each candidate's manifesto.
Over the past year CUPC has gone from strength to strength, putting in strong performances at the UPC championships, in the local leagues, and the varsity match. This has been in part due to the quality and enthusiasm of the players, but also largely due to the excellent leadership provided by the committee. As President, I would seek to build on the momentum we have gathered, through a number of initiatives. In consultation with the uni A and B team players, I will organise regular training sessions and tournaments for squad members, and run occasional 'masterclass' sessions which would be open to anyone in the University, to encourage development of the game at college level. I would also try and arrange friendly matches against other Universities, if the planned Universities league does not get started this year. Lastly, I would encourage more of our players to trial for County and Inter-league teams; though we could not play matches over the vacation periods, it would still provide much-needed experience against top-class opposition.
Abdur has done a great job over the year sorting out the clubs finances and I intend to carry on his good work, keeping the club in the black. I will try and ensure the trophys we have get engraved, and I will look into buying some more trophys for the divisions lacking one. Next year looks to be a testing one on the clubs resources with a new inter university league and more competitions within the university, and I would ensure that the club can cope with the new burdens whilst still keeping the events we already have.
The position of league secretary interests me because it will enable me to have a role in the organisation of a club which I really enjoy being a part of. I feel I have gained enough experience of CUPC, through the college league, the uni ladder and the Cambridge masters tournament, to hold this position. In addition, being a 2nd year geographer next year will leave me plenty of time to do a job which I know can be time-consuming. Paddy has done an excellent job this year, and I shall endeavour to continue in the same vein of reliability and efficiency. One change I would bring about would concern the uni ladder whereby all challenges would be CC:d to me, to try and prevent people from misusing the challenging system.
