Notice of AGM
The AGM for 2019 will be held on Thursday 7th November 2019 at the Kesgrave War Memorial Community Centre at 7.00 p.m. The agenda for the AGM is available here or from the link in the Menu. The minutes of last year's AGM are similarly available here and from the Menu.
An important part of this year's AGM will be for members to vote for the proposed changes to the club constitution. Again, the proposed constitution is available here and from the Menu link.
Time to Return Your Trophies
Can all 2018 winners please return any trophies to the club by the AGM on 7th November 2019. They need to be engraved with the new winners ready for presentations at Christmas
New Proposed Constitution
Over the course of this year, the committee have been reviewing and rewriting the club's constitution in line with EBU guidelines. To be accepted, the constitution has to be approved by club members at a general meeting and the committee propose to ask members to vote for the new document at the forthcoming AGM on Thursday 7th November. The document is available for examination in the Information section of the website and from the Menu item on the left. A copy will be on the club notice board from 3rd October and additional copies will be available for members on request.
Want to improve your bidding?
Each week, Chris Green sends out 16 hands where you are invited to consider the bidding sequence in each case. He collaborates with a volunteer team of highly experienced bridge playes to find the best solution for each hand and later in the week, the possible solution/s are published. To take part, all you need to do is to send Chris an email (click here) expressing your interest and you'll be added to his list. All he needs is your email address. This is a service Chris provides for his class of learners and he is very happy for others who are interested to take part.
The Club's Objectives
You can find the club's objectives in the 'Information' section of the menu on the left. Please note that the proposed new club constitution is also listed there and will be presented to all members at the AGM on 7th November 2019 for discussion and ratification by members' votes.
