As I write this we have just made our first attempt at re-starting Face to Face bridge in the newly refurbished Vale Room, on a Tuesday night.
Regrettably, very few members turned up, despite our extensive preparations and requirements to minimise the risk of infections spreading, which included wearing masks. As some may not relish the prospect of spending 3 hours in a mask, we decided to have 5 minute breaks after every couple of rounds in order to allow players to go outside and remove their masks. We plan to have one more attempt to get F2F bridge off the ground next Tuesday (21st September, and so, by the time you read this, that will probably be last Tuesday!)
The Annual General Meeting of the Club is to be held on Zoom at 7pm on Wednesday 6th October. Only those who express an interest in joining the meeting will be sent a formal invitation to join the Zoom session. The Agenda and Minutes of the previous AGM will be circulated separately, as will a summary of most matters to be discussed, in order to streamline the meeting somewhat, such that we only need to discuss the issues on which there may be varying opinions.
