1. Matters Arising From Previous Meeting


1.1 Shirley Ashtari has been appointed captain for the Teams of Eight league.


2. Financial Update


Nothing to report.


3. Attracting New Members


Shiona and Dave Beaumont attended a meeting with other local clubs (East Bridgford, Phoenix and Keyworth) to discuss opportunities to work together on bridge training. A detailed plan is being formulated and will be presented to the county with the aim of getting some financial support for a combined training program. The aim is to use the EBED Fast Track program which combines training and play.


The course would be advertised in local free-sheets in January 2018 with the possibility of organising open days. The hope is to run an afternoon course from February to April 2018.


In addition the NCBA are organising a club conference in November to discuss how the county can support clubs more effectively. Dave Beaumont will attend on our behalf.



4. Date of Next Meeting


November 6th 2017 (to include arrangements for Christmas). Action: DH
