Special General Meeting

HENFIELD DUPLICATE BRIDGE SOCIETY

MINUTES OF THE SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING

held on Thursday 29th November 2018

Present:  Peter Bates, Hugh Doohan, Sue Cottrell, Jon Fitton, Jim Downes, Jude Gill, Gary Inkpen, Barbara Dakin, Penny Hill, Jo & Geoff Jewson, Howard da Vall, David Pickford, Judy Taylor, Stephen Crabtree, Jane Ross, Bryan Davies, Lynne Spooner, Angela Burgess and Margaret Harrison.

  1. Apologies:  these were received from Margaret Collins, Hazel David, Sandra Kay Dennison, Sue Howley, Sue Peters, Ian Staveley, Pippa Turner, Phil Turner, Bob Whiting, Rose Windler, Graham Walker and Gloria Flint.

  1. The Resolution:  The chairman read out the resolution.  ‘That the Henfield Duplicate Bridge Society be wound up at the close of play on Thursday 31st January 2019, the financial balance at that point to be donated to three registered charities, with equal amounts going to The Henfield Hall, St. Barnabas Hospice at Worthing and St. Peter & St. James Hospice at Chailey.’

There was some discussion about the possible reasons for the lack of numbers, and whether putting up the table money would help.   David Pickford said that he would be prepared to take on the post of Treasurer.

Peter then asked for a show of hands to vote for the Resolution.  There were 29 in favour (including those who had registered their vote before the meeting) and 3 against.  The Resolution was therefore agreed.

The Chairman then said that there are another two months of play, and should any members come forward to fill other vacancies on the Committee, and numbers coming every week increased, there would be every possibility of the club continuing.

New Year Party

The Committee has decided to hold the New Year Party on January 10th 2019 as usual and make it a final celebration of the 42 years of the club's existence. (unless there have been offers of a new team to keep it going)   So put it in your diaries and come along.   

Need A Partner?

If You are looking for a partner, then ask Jo. She'll try and match you up. Please phone her on 01273 492251 giving her as much notice as possible.

Timing

We ask all members to be seated by 1:55 p.m. so that play can start promptly at 2:00 p.m.
