After the show of hands vote last friday it was suggested that this was potentially unconstitutional as it bypassed a commitee meeting, probably correctly (and with wednesday evening players absent), although i am uncertain of the right procedure,so in admission to the procedural error it should be made clear that NO wednesday evening session has been cancelled but that with the proviso if insufficient players turn up (less than 3 tables) then those who do will have to make their own arrangements as to how to play the evening if no official is in attendance but that if travellers are provided. to mike savage(at his home) then he will score the session to produce a result if required.The wednesday afternoon session on 22nd feb will go ahead  in order to see how many turn up and i will try to be there and the evening session  ( circumstances permitting). to ascertain the potential for either session so i urge everybody to attend one or other session to voice their preference by numbers.However this wednesday afternoon session will probably be a one off so if we do not get enough tables (3+) then this venture may be abandoned and if we continue to get less than 3 tables on a wedneday evening on a regular basis then this will go the way of the tuesday evening although i appreciate that this may be inevitable and accepted by those members and the Alpha club will essentially then become a friday afternoon club.I appreciate all your input to the dilemma we face but there appears no ,easy answer to the lack of numbers on tuesday and wednesday evening.I am trying to be impartial as to the outcome of these tribulations for the club but i will say that it is difficult with the unwillingness of many members to compromise their attendance session with their own preferences although i can understand this.I sincerely hope we can come to some solution or have to accept the inevitable result.It is with regret that Janet Dillon hes proffered her resignation as a committee member due to our club issues but that does not diminish my respect for her and indeed anybody who is willing to serve as a club official.Secretary David Thompson.
