Bristol Sonics will hold their Annual General Meeting (AGM) this Thursday (28th October 2010) at Aretians RFC, Station Road, Little Stoke, Bristol , starting at 7.30pm.

Chairman Phil Cole has urged all supporters, players and would-be volunteers to attend, describing the meeting as “vital for the future of the club”.

Cole said: “I would urge all supporters, players, would-be players and potential volunteers to attend Thursday’s AGM. We have much to discuss after a largely successful year. We have great plans for the club in 2011 and beyond, but we cannot achieve our aims without the backing and support of everyone involved in Rugby League in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. The AGM is vital for the future of club, and I would ask as many people as possible to come along and attend.”

While only paid-up club members can vote on agenda items, Chairman Cole and Head Coach Karl Fearnley welcome opinions and ideas from non-members. Items for discussion on the agenda include Bristol Sonics Academy – the club’s junior section, which launched in April – the future direction of the first and second teams in the RFL’s proposed new Community Game structure, club finances, fundraising, marketing and media.
