The KCHT AGM was held in Hradec Králové on Saturday Oct. 18, 2014
The AGM's main purpose was to close the 2014 season and to elect new board to serve for the next 3 years (2015-2017).

Concerning results, 2014 was a very good year for KCHT.
In addition to 4 standard cups awarded annually, the club was also proud to present two extra cups. One went to Roman Čermák for his first "TEN" and the other one was presented to Frank Otta for his best time ever flown in CZ to the NTU rules. For simplicity, we can call it a new Czech record.
