Host System

 The Host system will finish after Xmas. [We are short of a host for some dates in December - so check first]

The fact that only 10% of the club members volunteered to be a host might have had something to do with it.  You can continue to use the liaison system or book/request a partner using the website, I'll be sending out some instructions on how to do this by e-mail in due course.

In the meantime, check on the website (Member's Area) or Geof Losh that we have the correct e-mail address for you.  If you do not wish to disclose your e-mail address or receive e-mails from the club then you can amend your preferences there. If you have any comments, see a committee member.
