Rosemary has received a reasonable quotation for secondary glazing for the windows in the foyer and kitchen and the Board agreed to proceed.

Anne has had no success so far in selling off the surplus chairs.

 

Rosemary

 

 

Margaret

Rosemary to approach experienced players to partner improvers on some Tuesday evenings. Pat suggested that a particular evening should be organised with everyone knowing in advance. Pat and Rosemary to liaise.

Chair’s Report

 

 

 

The painter has asked when he can finish off painting the side room and the cupboard attached to the new computer room. This will have to wait until all the building works are completed.

 

 

 

The new water heater is installed and awaiting connection by the plumber.

 

 

 

Rosemary asked for opinions on whether to continue the programme of seminars. It was agreed that while members show interest, we should support this. Rosemary to organise the next one for a mutually convenient Saturday or Sunday.

Action

 

 

The return match with Perth Bridge Club will be held on 19th July in Stirling. It was agreed that those who took part last year at Perth should be given the first option to attend this year. The format was five teams from each club.

 

 

 

There is a problem with the sliding door to the Ladies’ Toilet. Tom to inspect it.

 

Tom

 

 

The sub-committee had queried why most competitions are run on Monday and Wednesday evenings. It was pointed out that this was simply custom, but it was agreed that perhaps the Kay Rees Bowl could be transferred to Thursday evenings (that being the session Kay Rees had meant it for in the first place) and the June Boyle Quaich could be run on alternate Friday evenings. As the existing competitions at these sessions are run on alternate weeks, this arrangement would fit in well and allow both to run over the whole winter season instead of being one-off events as at present. This will commence next season.

 

 

 

The question of the timer was again raised. A real effort must be made to adhere to the allotted times. TDs to remind players that time is running out on each round. Members could also be invited to vote on starting earlier – say 7pm instead of 7.15pm.

 

 

 

Problems are arising with members audibly discussing results as they finish hands. This to be strongly discouraged. The whole point of silent bidders is negated if people insist on discussing the results on the Bridgemates. An alternative solution would be to remove the results from the Bridgemates, but initially we will try asking for discretion.

 

 

 

Derek Banks had asked if it might be possible for the Astronomical Society to store some of their equipment and also attend meetings in the Club on Friday evenings.  This would be kept in mind.

 

 

 

Tom Barr asked if printed copies of results for the various competitions could be posted on the board, as was originally the practice. Moira to arrange this.

 

Moira
