Annual General Meetings
Annual General Meetings





The Annual General Meetings will take place in the club rooms at 6.30pm on Thursday 26th March 2015.

The Trafford Bridge Club Committee propose that

  1. “there shall be no change in the rate of standard evening table money of £2.50 (visitors £4.00), which was  fixed at the 2008 AGM,  and that the standard annual subscription should also remain at £25, with a reduction for 2015 only of £15,  for payment by 30th April following the AGM.” (i.e. the amount payable this year is reduced to £10, provided payment is made by 30th April)
  2. “The Committee may from time to time introduce different table money rates for daytime and any other non-standard sessions during the year”
  3. “The Committee may from time to time vary the standard annual subscription to promote increased membership during the year”
  4. “Clause 11(d) of the Club’s Rules shall be amended by deleting the words ‘for the avoidance of doubt, the Chairman shall be deemed to be also a committee member and shall be entitled to vote on all issues. In addition, the Chairman shall have a casting vote at all General and Committee meetings’ and adding the words ‘the Chairman shall only vote at Committee meetings if the votes of the other Committee members are evenly cast and he can then exercise a casting vote in order to decide the issue’”
