** New ** Host System

As a result of a suggestion at the AGM, the Club is proposing to have a Host system whereby you will be guaranteed a partner on each club evening session.  It will start on the 1st October and run for a trial period of 3 months.  This is dependent upon sufficient members being prepared to act as a host for the evening.

A notice to this effect is on the noticeboard (for a copy, press here).  If you want further details on how the scheme will work, ask a committee member, or mail me using the link at the bottom of this page.


Remember: the success of this trial will depend upon their being sufficient members willing to be a host - one evening you are the one that might need a partner!

The winning team was Linda Laughlin, Peter Collier and modesty prevents me from naming the third member.  If you want to see the happy band, click here (warning - not for people of a nervous disposition!)
