  Afternoon Start Times

AFTERNOON STARTING TIMES

The committee are aware that the earlier starting time of 13.30, which was approved at the AGM with 38 for and 2 against, has not suited a number of members. In fact a number of members have spoken to me about reverting back to the original 14.00 start.

Unfortunately as things stand the committee alone cannot reverse the AGM decision especially as it was a clear mandate for a change. Of the 38 voting for the change 16 were regular afternoon attendees.

We subsequently held a vote among those attending the Monday and Wednesday afternoons. The result of this was not as clear as at the AGM.

The result was 35 for changing back to 14.00, 25 for staying at 13.30, with 16 no preference and 6 abstaining. This makes it difficult to revoke the AGM decision as there is still a significant number wanting to start at 13.30.

Each side of the argument would like to think the 22 neutral voters would support them!

We have now been running the earlier time for 3months and I looked at the table numbers for 3 months before the change against the 3 months since, there is no difference in attendance.

I also looked at the table numbers last year for the same 6 month period and again there is no difference in attendance between the two periods.

This means there are three options within the constitution of the club:

  1. Leave things as they are and put a new proposal to the next AGM in March 2017.

  2. Ask the Secretary to raise an EGM but this would need the committee to approve it, which it would not as explained above.

  3. A member must submit a new proposal “To change the afternoon starting time to 14.00” supported by at least 11 other signatures. The committee would then be obliged to call an EGM at an appropriate time.

AFTERNOON SESSION START TIMES
 The afternoon sessions start at 13.30pm but members and visitors please arrive by 13.15pm
 EVENING SESSION START TIMES
 All evening session start times will continue to be 7.30pm but all players must be in place by 7.15pm in order to allow the Director sufficient time to decide on the movement to be employed, initiate BridgeMates, distribute boards and collect table money before 7.30pm.
 Arriving 5mins before the start times would mean you are unlikely to get a game unless you have phoned in advance to say you are coming but delayed.
 Except for the teams event on the 2nd Thursday and Simultaneous Pairs, a "Host" will be available, for those of you needing a partner, so come along and enjoy your favourite game of, "Bridge"
