I hope you are well and coping as best you can in these exceptional and demanding times. Thank you for your support throughout the year. I deeply appreciate it. May I also express my heartfelt gratitude to our committee members, our vice-president, Nora Gallagher, our secretary, Olive Smyth and our treasurer, Pat Stewart. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be club president.
AGM and Club Officers and Committee for 20/21
As you will be aware it is not possible to hold our usual AGM due to Covid-19 regulations and based on advice from CBAI. This is an important issue for us as the AGM is when our club president, officers and committee are appointed for the following year. The committee has considered the situation and proposes the following:
The AGM is postponed to September, at the earliest, when the possibility of holding it will be reviewed by the committee in light of the hopefully better environment.
Our current vice-president, Nora, is not in a position to take on the president’s role as is the usual situation.
Myra Birmingham has agreed, with the approval of the committee, to fill the position of president for the coming year. She will be officially a “Caretaker President” until approved as per the constitution by our AGM. Myra will take office from July 1st. Between now and end June Irene will continue as president to facilitate ease of transition in these unusual circumstances. Many thanks to Myra for taking on the responsibility.
The position of vice-president for 20/21 remains vacant.
The new club treasurer for 20/21 is Blathnid Farrell and she takes office from July 1 and the current treasurer Pat Stewart continues until end June
The club secretary is Olive Smyth.
The new 20/21 committee members are, in addition to president, treasurer and secretary, Una Elliott, Irene Foley, Nora Gallagher, Alan Gordan and Bernadette Lacey.
The committee would be delighted to hear from any members who would like to join the committee.
We are in the satisfactory position of being able to introduce on-line club bridge through BBO software on Weds June 3. The club is very grateful to all the people who put in the hard work which makes this possible.
Each online session must have a non-playing Tournament Director. At present we have two club members who are undertaking training to be a tournament director and a non-member has been providing assistance, for which we are very grateful. Ideally we would have several more club members trained as tournament directors to spread the load over a full season. A BBO session cannot proceed without a non-playing tournament director. A BBO tournament director has to have a good knowledge of bridge management and have some computer competence. Members interested in becoming BBO Tournament Directors should contact me, Irene Foley, at 087 1315005.
Any other matters
Subscriptions for 20/21. Details of this will be provided when there is greater clarity on the Covid-19 related issues.
Members who require information relating to club matters should contact any of the club officers or other committee members.
Regards and best wishes
The Club is now contactable by E- mail. Our address is email@example.com
The Club President
As most of you know our Wednesday bridge game will now go virtual on 3rd June . If you could read the letter from Aidan Synnott here under the title “ Important information for members using BBO”. It gives all the necessary information regarding buying dollars to play on line ect. It’s a good idea to buy $20 worth initially. Each game costs $3. So keep practicing and I look forward to meeting you all on line for our first game on 3rd June.
More information will be sent nearer the date.
