HOST SYSTEM

Would members please remember that the Host system is there to provide a partner in the event that your regular "partner" is not available to play or to ensure a newcomer will get a game.  It is NOT there so that you can turn up every week without a partner and expect to "get a game".

Our Club rules work on the assumption that after three weeks you should have managed to find someone to play with on a regular basis as a regular partnership brings long term benefits particularly a greater understanding of the game.

Whilst we have not yet turned people away for "abusing" the Host system we shall be looking to enforce this practice next year.  If you do continue to turn up thereafter without a partner our regular host will not be available to you and you will need to find another player that night who is also "without".
