Claygate now uses a wireless scoring system called BridgePal, which runs on smartphones and tablets.  The implementation team today consists of Gavin Wilson and Carol Wildig, but more volunteers are very welcome.  We will provide as much help and training as each North needs to enter the scores into the handset.

Further information about BridgePal can be found here.

GW reported that no sessions had been played at the club since 16th March 2020, because of the pandemic. The committee members spoke of their experience of online bridge. There was a general view that face-to-face bridge would not return to the Day Centre until June 2021 at the earliest.

PH and MH presented the 2020 accounts. It was agreed we would defer taking any decisions about the timing and magnitude of 2021 subs.

  • 21-1Ⓐ1 PH to ask John McKimmie for his approval of the 2020 accounts.

6. Annual General Meeting

The committee agreed not to hold an AGM this year, because a full year will have elapsed before play returns.

7. Any Other Business


8. Date of Next Meeting

No decision was taken, except to agree that the next meeting will not occur for at least a month. However there was a general feeling, after this first-ever committee meeting on Zoom, that it was a viable medium for the purpose.
