15. By-laws and Playing Rules

The Board of Directors may from time to time approve and publish by-laws and playing rules which, provided they do not contravene this Constitution, shall be binding upon all BAYS Members and Teams until voted upon at the next General Meeting.

The by-laws should represent the wishes of the General Membership. Therefore, any new by-laws or changes to existing ones, whether proposed by a Board member or any other member of BAYS, shall be submitted in writing to the Secretary. At the next Board meeting, after receipt of such by-law recommendation, the Board shall vote on the proposal and then submit it to the next regular or special General Meeting with its recommendation. Details of the proposed by-laws shall be included in the meeting notice. The proposals shall be discussed and voted upon, a simple majority of those present being necessary for acceptance of the change.
