Bequests

If you are thinking of leaving any money to this club in your will, we would put it towards the purchase of an electronic scoring system, which costs around £3,000. This would enable players to see their progress 'live' on a display screen each Monday evening, and not have to wait until the next day to learn their final score.

Scorer Rota

Here is the general time-tabling principle agreed between Carol, Tony and (Position Vacant):

  • 1st Monday in month: Carol Wildig
  • 2nd Monday: Tony Baker
  • 3rd Monday: (Position Vacant)
  • 4th Monday: (Position Vacant)

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The AGM will be held on Monday 14 March at 7.00 pm.  Members are kindly reminded to arrive at the hall a little earlier.  A normal bridge session will be played immediately after the AGM.

Nominations for Committee members are urgently requested.  These should be communicated to Tony Baker.   

CLUB INFORMATION
CLUB INFORMATION

Meets every Monday (Bank Holidays excepted) at 7.30 pm

at Claygate Day Centre, Elm Road, Claygate.

Tel: 01372 463476    Map  

Visitors and new members are very welcome.

 

Table money, including refreshments, is normally £3.00 for members and £4.00 for visitors.

Would-be members should contact our Secretary (see Contacts) for details of joining fees, subscriptions and any other relevant information.

CHAIRMAN

Having completed the task for which he was elected, Tony Baker will stand down from the club chairmanship at the next AGM.  The issues which beset the club a few months ago have been eliminated and several players have been returning - at a time when other Surrey clubs are suffering reductions in their headcounts, this is particularly pleasing.

We have now returned to the status quo ante with only routine matters to concern the committee.  The chairman's role is now considerably reduced and members are asked to consider whom they might wish to propose for the role in the next club year, in order that the committee election process can proceed effectively at the AGM - obviously, the chairmanship is not the only role to consider.

There is no immediate hurry for the receipt of recommendations, but clearly our secretary, Wendy Stainer will need them in time to prepare the AGM agenda.

Latest Committee Meeting minutes now online

To read the deliberations of the conclave, go to the left-hand side bar, select 'Meetings of the Club', then 'Committee Meetings'.  Among the topics discussed were:

  • Free evenings
  • Electronic Scoring
  • Etiquette at the table (e.g not hiding away your bids until the opening lead has been faced)
  • Directors not adjudicating at their own table.
100 members and counting

The Club's membership has now reached its highest level for several years.  As there are justified concerns about noise levels in the room when we have more than 15 tables, we would like to put a ceiling on the membership.  We will soon reinstate the Waiting List for prospective new members.  So if anyone is thinking about joining, or any member letting their membership lapse, now is the time to act before the Waiting List is activated.
