The 2020 RFA AGM will go down in history for a couple of very important reasons. First, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was held online via Zoom with attendance limited to Directors; and, second, the Association elected its first female Deputy President.
The lady in question in this landmark event is Julie McIntyre, who has done such as superb job in setting up and running the City of Durham Club. She will be deputy to Dave Parlby, who was elected President at the same meeting. He is also a familiar face to RFA members, having been Treasurer for the last four years and, in his playing days, a fearsome left-hander whose Doubles partnership in the 1980s with the late Jeremy Schroeter and Dave Hebden brought a whole array of titles.
At the same time, the RFA welcomed Dave Butler to the board and said a farewell to outgoing President David Bawtree and his predecessor Bernard Atkinson.
