     i. The updated version of Appendix A would be published both at the Open Meeting and at the Umpires' & Captains' Meeting. Chris Bates would outline the main changes.
     ii. Similarly, it was thought appropriate that part of the dissemination of amendments to the Laws should start at the same meeting, followed by publication on the ESCL website.
The committee went through, in detail, the key changes, which David White had kindly prepared, and notes were made for the Open Meeting.
It was agreed to add "Fake Fielding", "dangerous ball deliveries", and "the use of covers before games" to the summary. The Hon. Secretary would send out by email a copy of the updated summary of the law changes to all League Contacts.
     iii. Annual Dinner, date & venue: it was agreed to enquire at the Open Meeting what member clubs' views were, and if favourable, to ask Robin Sewell if he would organise this.
     iv. Inter Sport Trophy & Plate: it was agreed to leave a decision about where the finals should be held until a later date.

Paul McNally would make enquiries about the timing of the ball delivery by Grays on the day of the Open Meeting.
