Dear cricketers,

After my announcement that I would end my chairmanship by 31 December 2020, there is good news on the succession.

I am happy to announce that Guido Cramer is willing to take on the role of chairman. Of course it is up to the GMM to endorse this, but I sincerely hope that you will all welcome Guido as the new chairman!

With Eelko back on board, the continuity of the treasurer’s position was secured when Sander Wubben wanted to step down. Also here we have found someone ready to take over that role from Eelko for the coming years: Hans Haanappel. I also wish Hans a warm welcome at the GMM. Eelko will remain on the board for some time.

With the above, we certainly do not want to take advance on a decision by the GMM. But the continuity of the club board is so important, particularly in these times of growth of our club, and particularly in times of a crisis in the country. At this stage, members may still formally propose as candidates for the chairmanship and treasurer. You can indicate this to me. However, it has not been easy to get the board up to strength in recent years and I have the deepest respect for people who want to roll up their sleeves for the club.

With the corona crisis, we thought we would have the opportunity to hold a physical GMM early in the year. Unfortunately, the Brexit has not been able to prevent the import of an unwanted product, so we will remain in some form of lockdown for a longer time.

We will now proceed planning an Online General Assembly. Date and logistics will be announced shortly.

Best regards,

Ulrich Oron
Chairman a.i. SV Kampong Cricket
