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.

Bridge on Bank Holiday Mondays?

The reason for the extra Committee Members meeting held on 30th March 2015 was to discuss Bank Holiday Monday bridge.

At the AGM held on 9th March 2015, it was proposed by a member of the Club that the Committee look into setting up bridge on Bank Holiday Mondays.

SO established that there was no possibility of the Day Centre opening on Bank Holiday Mondays. JFG visited Claygate Village Hall and established that the club could make use of this Hall for Bank Holiday Mondays.

However, after discussion by the Committee Members it was felt that the effort of setting up all that was necessary to make it a success was too great for just a few number of tables. Committee Members were also doubtful as to whether they could make a commitment on Bank Holiday Mondays early enough to warrant booking and paying for the hall in advance. Therefore at the next Club Night, SO will tell the Club that as a Committee we were unable to see how it would work – and ask for comments.

Action: SO


Gavin raised a question with regard to a process for vetting applicants to the Club. It was agreed that there should be a form which had a space for a Proposer and Seconder. JFG suggested that we add a yes/no box asking if the proposed member had ever been excluded from a Club. DR said that he would bring the form to the next Committee Meeting and we would discuss it further.

Action: DR

As it stands, as of the AGM on 9th March 2015, membership is closed, and a waiting list set up. It was agreed that all future membership applications should be approved by the Committee at their next meeting.

SO proposed that JFG should become Membership Secretary. This was seconded by DR and adopted.

DR would send JFG the latest version of the membership list to JFG.

Action: DR

End of Meeting

There being no further issues, the meeting finished at 7.23pm.
