RIPON CITY BRIDGE CLUB
Committee Meeting 10am 7th. February 2020
Present: Andrew, Chris, Christine, John Digby, Gillian
Apologies: John Blackett, Kay
Christmas Party – it was considered a success but changes would be implemented next year; review prize money as it is considered too generous, more red wine, less Prosecco, amend bridge movement, dietary requirements to be met by Cook of Harrogate, Gillian to obtain current brochure, ask at AGM to consider name change of event to New Year Party.
Mentor Sessions – 20th. March proposed start date. John B will organise list of mentors and mentees. No problem foreseen if some conventions were to be disallowed such as the multi 2D
Friday Sessions – it was agreed to continue with the coffee break. Play was within the allotted time but it was felt 28 boards were too much for many of the players and should be avoided.
Simm pairs – it was agreed to continue with 6 events to confirm at the AGM.
Scoring – Chris and Andrew offered to learn EBU scoring but the only benefit would be a saving of £30/annum. We would continue with Scorebridge until training of others is complete and comparison with EBU is made.
Treasurer’s Report – As of 31st. Jan we had £650 more than last year. There is money in the bank for a capital expenditure and the Christmas Party made a profit of £10.
A.O.B. – Request for hosting and directing schedule a month in advance.
