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 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
