East Kilbride and Haremyres Curling Club

A McDonald at the 1963 AGM proposed
the setting up of a constitution for the club.
This was left to the committee to discuss
and the AGM of 1964 decided to let the matter drop.

However it was brought up again in 1966 and a first draft
for a constitution was agreed and ratified at the AGM of 1966.

Notes to the 1992 ammendment to the constitution of 1979

Clause 9 of the 1979 Constitution prior to being deleted.

The Ladies' Section to be allowed to admit members as necessary
to play in the ladies' competitions.
These ladies to be designated, Associate Members.
Such members would pay no entry fee, have no voting rights but
would pay full Annual Subscription.
Should these ladies wish to play in evening competitions
they will require to take their place on the waiting list for full membership.

The deletion of this clause brought all members
under the one umbrella of the main club as full members
able to take part in all club competitions on payment of the full membership fee.
Members may if they so wish,
elect to pay a reduced annual membership fee
which then designates them as non-playing members.
Non-playing members have full voting rights in the club
but are excluded from taking part in any club curling.
