The AGM was held on 4th October ahead of a shortened bridge session. All Officers and Committee members were re-elected unopposed.
Attendance has increased during the 2017-2018 year in comparison with the previous year, but there is no guarantee that similar levels of attendance will be maintained in future. So Ken Angus’ offer to form a sub-committee to look at ways of recruiting new members is very welcome – anyone who has any suggestions or would like to contribute to this initiative should contact Ken directly.
The current playing year ends on 30th October and a new year’s competitions will commence. Subscriptions will be due on 1st November and a new calendar with list of members and contact details will be available. For the 2018-2019 year we have a new competition, thanks to the generosity of Richard Bird, who has presented the Bird Salver to the club for the best handicap pair on Thursday evenings over a minimum of 15 qualifying events.
This year’s Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs competition is to be held at the normal Thursday club session on 15th November. Please make every effort to come along and contribute to this very worthwhile cause. It is hoped that participants will agree to a contribution of at least £5 each on the night – all of which will be donated to Children in Need. Michael Allen 851870
