Members will be aware of how much work goes on both visibly and behind the scenes to ensure smooth operation of the club - in numerous areas such as directing, dealing, refreshments and finance - to name just a few. An area where more help would be welcome is in members volunteering to host occasionally especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The hosting system (which is a condition of membership) where feasible has been well used since its inception many many years back with many members benefiting and forming new friendships and bridge partnerships through its use. However there is a risk that we may not be able to continue if more members don't come forward and volunteer to take on the role of host. So - if you play regularly and don't make a contribution to the running of the club in any other way - then please consider hosting every few months - even if you have no intention of using it yourself. Don't be afraid of doing so, we encourage hosts and hosted to agree simple systems to play on the night and to adopt a "no blame approach"!
Please simply identify a date when you are free and put your name on the list on the noticeboard.
If you'd like to discuss the way this operates then please speak to any committee member.
The Club is in urgent need of more Directors. We are not asking anyone to go on a Directors course but anyone who could facilitate a duplicate session with enough basic knowledge on rules and the various movements. Please let yourself be known! Thank you.
