Dave Morris Swiss TeamsMonday 15 OctoberHalloweenWednesday 31 October
The Dave Morris Swiss Teams Annual Club Championship is to be played on
Monday October 15th.
Because of the nature of the competition we need to have an even number of Teams, with a minimum of 8 Teams for the competition to be valid. For this reason, members wishing to play are asked to put their names down on the list on the notice board at the club.
If there is an odd number of teams it will be a case of first come first served, with the last team becoming reserves. So, if you would like to play it is advisable to get your names down as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
If you put your names down to play, but then find that you are unable to play, please ensure that your names are removed from the list.
Entries close on Friday October 12th.
The hands will be made-up at 5pm on the evening, anyone wishing to witness or assist making-up the hands should be there for that time.
Players to be seated by 6.45pm.
“Members who have played at the club a minimum of 12 times in the past 12 months or 6 times in the last 3 months shall be eligible to play in this competition. Any variation from this shall be at the discretion of the committee”.
Members will be aware that we have privileged, free use of some parking spaces in Clare Hall, opposite the club. However, that use is under threat because of cars not being parked 'tight' to the wall and obstructing the road to residents. Members are asked to pull in to within a foot of the wall in future, dropping off passengers prior to parking. This concession is invaluable to us and members are asked to comply to safeguard this facility.
