  Committee Meeting Report 22nd Jan 2014

Some updates from our Committee meeting earlier this week.

1.        The Club has 61 members (with two awaiting registration) and we consider we are at full capacity.

2.        We are purchasing bidding boxes and up to 4 tables and new playing cards.

3.        Feedback from members suggests satisfaction with current management with a very good atmosphere prevailing

4.        Careful consideration was given to implementing a handicapping system but while we are conscious that some people wish to improve at a greater pace than others believe it is not appropriate considering we are all Novice level.

5.        There was mixed feedback on our Team Bridge night with some reporting it to be somewhat stressful. We concluded that this was largely due to their being exposed to it for the first time but that it added to members’ knowledge of the game.

6.        The suggestion of the club being involved in the Simultaneous Pairs event on 3rd February didn’t receive overall backing and it was decided to defer to next year.

7.        It was agreed that we would have a Charity Night on 7 April – no prizes on the night but the winners nominating the charities.

8.        President’s Prize will take place on 12th May.

9.        The Club is in a healthy financial position.

10.        The club website will be This is currently being registered and members will be notified when it goes live.

11.        We will be interested in member feedback on the contents of the website and plan to issue a questionnaire to members regarding the website and the club itself.

  Our first Team Competition

Not sure if everyone is quite over the excitement of Monday night's team event! Afraid my team flattered to deceive - great start but not so good finish. But it offered a nice change and some exposure to team events structure. Thanks to Bert and Marian for their excellent work in managing the event. Apologies to those who felt the event went on a little late. This was very much down to our inexperience of the event and the scoring. Well done to all the prizewinners.

Next Monday it's back to the usual form of play. We won't have either Bert or Marian on the evening.

Well done to our 2 teams for the excellent showing in the Cunningham League on Sunday last.

Best wishes.

  Christmas Party


Little did I think that Naas Trumps was populated not just with proficient bridge players but also with entertainers par excellence who (for a modest fee) topped off a wonderful evening with great renditions of old classics.

I very much appreciate the effort everyone made to attend on the night and to contribute to making it a highly successful first formal dinner for the club. Who knows where we might take it from here?

Thanks to Anne Bennett for her excellent organisation , to our President, Pat Madden, to Lawlor's Hotel and to all who contributed in your own individual ways on the evening. We were delighted to be joined by Bert and Marian who have played such a significant role in the development of the club.

Wishing you all and your families a wonderful Christmas and may 2014 bring many successful contracts made and defensive ploys of uncanny skill.
