The committee wishes to thank those members who have given donations already towards the refurbishment of the club. The refurbishment is going ahead but any donations will help us to buy more and/or better things for us to have for the benefit of all members. Donations can be made in cash, by cheque or bank transfer. Unwanted foreign currency notes will also be gratefully received. We have this opportunity to make the club a much nicer place for everyone, let's make the most of it.
At the 2017 AGM it was agreed that we would trial a Grand Slam Rollover competition. The latest winners are Averil McKinley & Catherine Graham with 7 Spades on Monday 8 April 2019.
To enable any errors to be corrected or results to be checked it is important that each pair leaves a scorecard at the end of play on every evening. The committee has agreed that should it be necessary to check results and a vital scorecard is missing, any benefit of the doubt will be given to the pair who submitted a scorecard. Additionally, a penalty may be imposed on the offending pair by the scorer.
