The Chairman opened the meeting and wished everybody a Happy New Year from the Committee.   This is the SGM that had been planned for 30th November 2010 but was postponed due to the bad weather.

The only item on the agenda is to approve and adopt the revised Constitution dated October 2010 for Castle Morpeth Bridge Club.   The draft has been displayed on the Club notice board and website for several weeks.   The Chairman said that some comments had been received and responded to and as far as he knew there were no outstanding comments.

The Chairman asked for a Proposer and Seconder to the motion that Castle Morpeth Bridge Club approve and adopt the draft Constitution.    Tessa Lee proposed and Peter Dodds seconded  the motion.     All members of the Club were asked to vote by a show of hands and  the motion was carried unanimously, with no abstentions.

The Chairman thanked the members for adopting the Constitution and reminded them that in doing so they had agreed to abide by the Laws, Regulations and Policies of the EBU (clauses 4 & 13a).   These documents are quite detailed and to help members an extract has been put on the website “Points of Law, Etiquette & Procedure” and in addition a summary has been prepared by the Committee “A gentle reminder.......” which has been placed on each table.

This concluded the business of the meeting.    Peter Marshall kindly thanked the Committee for their good work.
