Appointment of proxies
1. As a member of the Company (i.e. you have paid the current membership fee before the time set for
receipt of proxies {15:30 GMT or 16:30 CET on Friday 30th January 2015}), you are entitled to appoint a
proxy to exercise all or any of your rights to attend, speak and vote at the Meeting and a proxy form is
available on the BBU’s website [www.britishbiathlon.com] for you to download. For athletes competing at
the British Championships in Ruhpolding the proxy form will be issued in your Championships Arrival
Pack, although you can still use a downloaded form – but not both. You can only appoint a proxy using the
procedures set out in these notes and the notes to the proxy form.

Details of how to appoint the Chairman of the Meeting or another person as your proxy using the proxy form
are set out in the notes to the proxy form.
3. The notes to the proxy form explain how to direct your proxy how to vote on each resolution or withhold
their vote. If you do not give your proxy an indication of how to vote on any resolution, your proxy will
vote or abstain from voting at his or her discretion. Your proxy will vote (or abstain from voting) as he or
she thinks fit in relation to any other matter which is put before the Meeting.

the process and timetable for delivery of the proxy form so as to be valid.
