2020 AGM

The committee has met online to decide on our plans for the 2020 AGM.

Although, we could run the AGM online, the committee has decided there is no compelling need to do so.

In addition the following was agreed :-

  • The accounts will be closed as usual on the 30th June and draft accounts will be published on the web site.
  • Current 2019/20 members will continue to be members into 2020/21.
  • No subscription fee will be charged at this time.
  • The current officers and committee of the club will continue in place until we are able to hold an AGM. All current committee members have agreed to continue.
  • We will schedule an AGM as soon as it is safe to do so.

Handicapping Results

In order to provide more interesting information to members, the committee have decided to provide results on a trial basis - 1) as normal and 2) using a handicap provided by the NGS system. Results will be provided as normal and also a tab is included which shows the handicap result. All EBU members will have a handicap except visitors that are not members of the EBU or EBU members who choose to keep their NGS ranking private. If a pair does not have a handicap, they are excluded from the handicap results. To view the handicap results click on the "Handicap Tab" on the results screen.
