HOSTS

Oakfield Bridge Club prides itself on welcoming new members. Often new members do not come in "ready-made" pairs and need a partner. Existing members may also need a partner if their regular partner is unable to attend. This is why the club operates a "hosting" system. It ensures that all members who attend get a game (with the exception of the host who occasionally doesn't). However, we need more members to volunteer to be hosts so that it does not fall on a small group. As someone who acts as host from time to time it is also a good learning exercise playing with a new person. If all club members volunteered twice a year all slots would be covered. Please spare the time to be a host.
