The Club's Constitution outlines the powers of the Board to essentially manage the affairs of the Club on behalf of the Members. The Members powers in the constitution do not extend to reversing or directing the Board in excercising its powers. For instance a motion by members to reduce drink prices, fill in a bunker or to reverse another decision of the Board may be discussed but will not be binding upon the Board. The Members powers extend to removing directors or special resolutions to amend the Constitution.
