THURSDAY PLAY - Five minutes before the start of the session (12.45) the Director will ring the bell and all participants must be seated at the table where they intend to play. At this point, a pair at a table without an opposing pair, a player without a partner or whose partner is expected to be late needs to notify the Director. Late arrivals after 12.50 will only be allowed to play at the Director's discretion. Once the movement has been entered on the computer and the play is set for the session, latecomers will not be able to play. This ruling will be strictly enforced.

AS A SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS WE ARE COMPILING A LIST OF PROFESSIONALS AND TRADES PEOPLE. IF YOU HAVE SUGGESTIONS FOR THIS LIST PLEASE WRITE THEM ON THE LIST ON THE NOTICEBOARD. MEMBERS' RECOMMENDATIONS ONLY.
Only limited car parking can be allowed on the small Larkhill Centre car park due to the requirements for access for emergency vehicles. I would urge members to use the large free public car park adjacent to the centre which from January 2016 has a 3 hour time limit with no return within the hour. There are some spaces for blue badge holders near to the path leading to the centre. There are shortly to be parking restrictions on Thorley Lane itself but there is another free car park in the village behind the library which sometimes has spaces.
BELIEVED TO BE A MISQUOTE
BUT KEEP READING ANYWAY!

Instead of an inquest at the table
use the Play it again feature on
the hand records - it's brilliant!

Moira has proposed that we incorporate the EBU’s ‘Best Behaviour at Bridge’ into our rules.
This is as follows:
There were a couple of amendments made (included above) by the floor, before the vote was taken
PROPOSED – SECONDED – VOTED UNANIMOUSLY
Geoff Densham’s proposal
“Proposing items for Any Other Business at the AGM – A proposal shall be submitted in writing before the AGM as at present BUT will only be considered at the AGM if the proposer is present at the AGM”. In other words, no proposer at the AGM results in automatic withdrawal at the start of the AGM.
Honorarium at the discretion of the floor to be awarded to the Treasurer and Duplimator as a thank you for their hard work every week.
PROPOSED NOT SECONDED THEREFORE WITHDRAWN. An alternative proposal from the floor was also rejected.
A suggestion for additional play was made, perhaps in the evening and Paul will check the availability of the hall for us.
Anne agreed to write a short newsletter to hand out for members to be informed of the new decisions taken at the AGM.
There being no other business, the meeting closed at 5.30 pm.
