ALBURY and District Bowling Association secretary Phil Schuster has resigned.
He tendered his resignation verbally at a board meeting held at North Albury on Tuesday.
His resignation will be confirmed in writing soon.
Schuster, the association secretary for several years, said an increasing workload with his job made it difficult for him to continue.
Board members decided to advise clubs immediately and start looking for a replacement.
Schuster will continue assisting the district until its half-yearly meeting is held at Culcairn on January 12.
The Lavington Panthers at a committee meeting last month expressed concern about a lack of communication from the district.
Club secretary Rob Rankin sent a letter to the district, but there was no mention of it in correspondence at the meeting.
Board member and Lavington committee member Slawko Kitt raised the issue in general business.
Both Schuster and association president Noel Trainor told the board they have not seen the letter.
Rankin confirmed yesterday the letter was sent to the association’s post office box early last month.
It will be submitted again for discussion inJanuary.
