THE PROCTORS


Amendment to Rules for the Registration of Sports
Clubs

In order to give effect to recommendations arising from the Review of
University Sport, the Proctors consider it expedient to introduce revised rules
for the registration of sports clubs. The introduction of revised provisions at
this stage of Hilary Term 2000 is urgently required to assist university sports
clubs in reviewing their constitutions and completing a re-registration process
before the start of the new academic year. The following rules are therefore
published in accordance with the Proctors' powers under Title XIII of Statutes
and are subject to ratification by the Rules Committee. The rules are similar
to the regulations published provisionally following the Hilary Term 1999
meeting of the Rules Committee and subsequently withdrawn
(Gazette, Vol. 129, p. 1380 (10 June 1999), and Vol. 130, p. 147 (14
October 1999)).

Delete clause 7 of the Regulations of the Rules Committee and substitute:

` 7. (i) Each sports club which registers with the Proctors shall:

(a) establish a constitution and deposit a copy of it with the
Director of Sport. This constitution must include provisions satisfactory to the
Proctors relating to safety and insurance matters and must provide for the
sports club to appoint a president (or similar principal officer), a secretary
and a treasurer as in 6 (i) (e), (f), (g) and (
h) above; must provide for the club to admit members as in 6
(l) and (m) above; and must provide for the club to be
run by a committee on which members of the University, both Senior and
Junior, are in a majority;

(b) act in accordance with the constitution established under
(a) above;

(c) advise the Proctors promptly, through the Director of Sport,
of any changes in the constitution established under (a) above;

(d) be designated or re-designated by the Proctors, as they see
fit after consulting the Sports Strategy Committee, to be a "foundation
sport", "development sport", "established sport" or
"recognised sport";

(e) appoint to its committee a Senior Member (who shall be a
person who is a Member of Congregation) through whom the club is
accountable to the Proctors: in the case of a sports club designated by the
Proctors to be a "recognised sport" in accordance with (d)
above, the Senior Member shall be the Director of Sport ex officio,
who shall be formally responsible for the affairs of each recognised sports
club;

(f) unless designated by the Proctors to be a "recognised
sport" in accordance with (d) above, present to the Proctors,
through the Director of Sport, annual accounts together with a copy of the
club's current constitution and list of officers, (such accounts to be submitted
not later than four months after the end of the financial year to which they
relate). If having a turnover in excess of £30,000 in the preceding year,
or if owing to a change in the nature or scale of its activities, confidently
expecting to have such a turnover in the current year, a sports club must
submit its accounts for audit by auditors approved in advance by the
Proctors. Accounts are to be ready for audit within four months of the end
of its financial year and the costs of the audit shall be borne by the sports
club. If requested by the auditors, the sports club shall submit accounts and
related material as the basis for a review of accounting procedures, the costs
likewise to be borne by the sports club.

(g) Ensure that all paid club administrative and coaching
appointments are ratified by the Sports Strategy Committee and that all paid
coaches are accredited by the relevant national governing body;

(ii) Each officer of a sports club must, on relinquishing his or her
appointment, promptly hand to his or her successor in office (or to another
member of the club nominated by its committee) all official documents and
records belonging to the club, together with (on request from the club's
committee) any other property of the club which may be in his or her
possession, and must complete any requirements to transfer authority relating
to control of the club's bank account, building society account or any other
financial affairs.

(iii) Any registered sports club may apply to the Proctors, through the
Sports Strategy Committee, for permission to co-operate in the establishment
of a federal structure or representative team.

(iv) There shall be only one registered club for each sport, with the
possibility of the club being federal in nature.

(v) In exceptional circumstances, at the request of a sports club submitted
through the Director of Sport, the Proctors shall have discretion to dispense
from the requirements of any of sub-clauses (i) (a) to (g),
subject to such terms and conditions as they may from time to time see fit to
impose.'

TIMOTHY BAILEY SCHOLARSHIP

The Timothy Bailey Trust has been set up in memory of Timothy
Bailey, a Biology graduate of Christ Church. It aims to provide
financial support to students of Oxford University to assist them
in undertaking any extra-curricular project or expedition
relating to the Biological Sciences. Generally a single
Scholarship will be awarded each year, on a competitive basis.

Applicants should produce a written proposal of 500--1,000 words
stating clearly: (a) the background to, and aims of, the
activity; (b) how a successful outcome to the activity
will contribute to our knowledge and understanding of any aspect
of Biology; (c) detailed work plans for a successful
outcome; (d) how, in the event of a successful
application, the award will contribute to this outcome.

Timothy Bailey was especially interested in Evolution, Entomology
and Developmental Biology and applications in any or all of these
areas are especially encouraged, although this is not an
essential requirement.

It is expected that applicants will normally be individuals,
including those going on University Expeditions with others.
Exceptionally expeditions may also be considered for joint
funding although this is not preferred.

Three copies of each application should be addressed as follows:
the Timothy Bailey Scholarship, c/o Professor D. J. Rogers,
Department of Zoology, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PS.

Applications must be received on or before Friday of eighth week
of Hilary Term (11 March) and decisions will be reached and
communicated to the successful applicants by the end of first
week of Trinity Term (5 May). Candidates who have not heard by
the start of the second week of Trinity Term must assume they
have been unsuccessful.

Entries will be judged by the Trustees, whose decision is final.
Currently the Trustees are Dr Mark Bailey, Mr Greg Payne, and
Professor David Rogers. The Timothy Bailey Scholarships will be
to a value of approximately £500. In the event of joint
winners the Trustees will divide this sum between them.

The winning applicant(s) will be expected to acknowledge the
support of the Timothy Bailey Trust in any reports or scientific
papers arising from any activity supported by the Trust. They
should also provide a written report of no more than 2,000 words
to the Trustees upon completion of the research and travel
supported.

Information regarding the life and interests of Timothy Bailey,
plus further details on the Trust, can be found at

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Trinity Term 2000

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
at the Schools in Trinity Term 2000 could inform the Clerk of the
Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to know
whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred
persons is required; only the three large writingþschools will
accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the end
of the fourth week of Trinity Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection
equipment and 35-mm projectors are available. When these
facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be
notified in advance.
