Rugby amalgamation left to voters

THE battle lines have been drawn.

April 20 is the nominated date for members of the Coffs Harbour Leagues Club to vote on whether the club should begin proceedings to amalgamate with Club Coffs and no-one is too sure which way the vote will go.

For discussions on the proposed amalgamation between the two parties to go ahead, the Leagues Club need to get at least 50 per cent of the vote plus one more member at the meeting.

Will there be enough people to vote yes to the resolution put forward at the Extraordinary General Meeting?

That is the great unknown and there are people lining up on both sides of the fence hoping that the vote goes their way.

With only two days to go before the 2010 Group 2 season begins, The Coffs Coast Advocate found members on both sides of the fence and asked them to put forward their views.
