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.

1. Minutes of Last Meeting

The minutes of the meeting dated 22nd January 2015 were adopted without amendment.

2. Matters arising from the AGM held on 9th March 2015

There were no further matters arising other than those already listed as items to be discussed within this meeting.

3. Basic Etiquette and Procedure

Discussion took place as to what issues should and should not be included. SO would draft a document which would be circulated to the committee for comment. It was noted that ‘best behaviour’ would be included in this document. Once agreed, the document would be laminated and placed on tables at the start of play.

Action: SO

4. Membership

Membership for the club is now full but there is a waiting list. JFG is the holder of this list and any prospective members should contact her. A new application form is being produced by DR which will be circulated to the committee for comment.

Action: DR

There was discussion as to the maximum number of tables we should have – which has been set at 17, and as this happens only infrequently, it was decided that the duplimating of two sets of boards would not be required. Should we get more than 17 tables then visitors would be asked to leave and come back another evening.

5. Discussion of Electronic Scoring

Bridgemates were discussed and it was agreed that once the financial situation had been assessed (DR) we would ask one of the local clubs who already have Bridgemates if they would be willing to give us a demonstration. (SO) The possibility of having Bridgemates would then be discussed at a later date again by the Committee.

Action: DR/SO

6. Bank Holiday Bridge

Following the Committee’s decision not to hold Bank Holiday Bridge for reasons of logistical difficulty, Jaime Bueno volunteered to undertake the task of running this for the Club at Claygate Village Hall. The Club has paid for the hire of the hall, and players would receive a free night of play.

7. Introduction of Psyche Book

Following a recent incident at the Club, a Psyche Book has been introduced to the Club and is available at the Club for Directors to enter any further infractions. All psyches should be brought to the attention of the Director.

8. Any Other Business

Directors should not adjudicate on incidents at their own table.

It was agreed that JFG should send an email to all Directors reminding them that if there is a ‘Directors issue’ at their own table in the course of an evening, one of the other Directors in the room should be called to adjudicate.

Action: JFG

Free Evenings

It was decided that for the SIMS competition on 21st September members would get a free evening, and that there would also be a free evening later on in the year. A date yet to be decided.

Wanborough Cup

The victors of our Teams of 4 event, Joyce and Maurice Grant, Joan Low and Janet Kefford will represent Claygate Club in the Wanborough Cup. Entry fees would be paid by the club and DR would undertake to enter the team and pay the fees.

Action: DR

End of Meeting

There being no further business the meeting was closed at 7.46pm.
