Special Member Update - Incorporation of UKU

Thanks to the many people that have already responded.

The purpose of sending this member update is

Resolution to incorporate UKU

To All members,

We need your help please!

You may or may not know that the UKUA is currently what is known as an unincorporated association. This is not unusual for sports organisations like ours - and also sports clubs. However there is a significant drawback to the arrangement in that the organisation has no real standing legally. This has various implications - but in particular it means that when the Association makes an arrangement with someone else, or takes on some liability, it is in fact being taken on personally by the members of the Board. (In other unincorporated associations it could be "all members" - but for us it's basically the Board.)

GB Masters in Brazil

The GB Masters team were silver medallists at the World Beach Championships in Brazil. We had to beat Portugal in our last pool game to reach the semi final. Despite starting poorly and going behind we ran very hard and eventually scored a string of points near the end to win comfortably.
