Present: Tim Anderson, Shiona Dawson (chair), Ian Dovey, Clive Goode,

1. Matters Arising From Previous Meeting
1.1 ID has a draft version of the Club Contact card. The “Best Behaviour at Bridge” guidelines and a note requesting members to be seated 5 minutes before the schedule start time need to be added. DH offered to organise the printing (60 cards). Action: ID/DH
1.2 Item 4 (“Attracting New members to Contract Bridge”) has not yet been followed up. Action: TA/ID
1.3 The red law book has been located.
2. Match Boards
The cards in the boards used for matches need replacing. Four dozen packs are to be purchased. These will be used for the club night boards and the packs currently in the club night boards (which are relatively new) will be put in the match boards. Action: DH
3. Christmas Party
The Christmas party will be held on Monday 22nd December. There will be a mix of Bridge competitions and a quiz. All are welcome – partners will be available for anyone on their own.
Action: Bridge/Quiz: ID
4. Relocation During Arena Refurbishment
The latest information we have from the Council is that the Arena will close in August 2015 and will re-open at the beginning of 2017. The council has indicated that they will attempt to find alternative accommodation for us but there is no guarantee that they will come up with anything suitable, so we need to check out options ourselves. Facilities that need to considered are Opening Times, Parking and Equipment Storage. Action: All
5. Disputes Procedure
We currently don't have a procedure for disputes in director judgement rulings. Shiona has produced a draft but the appeal procedure needs firming up. Ian will produce a draft and circulate (via E-Mail) to committee members. The final proposal will be made available on the club web-site and made know to all members. Action: All
6.1 The possibility of showing appreciation to club night directors in some way was discussed. Options include waiving of the table fee, special prize at the Christmas party (or AGM), bottle of wine, etc. To be discussed at the next meeting.
6.2 The use of Bridgemates for club night scoring was raised. Cost is not really an issue but the logistics (storage, Wi-Fi access, computer, etc.) make this problematic at the moment. It was felt that this would be better addressed in the future when the location of the club has been confirmed.
7. Date of Next Meeting
Monday 26th January 2015 at the Rushcliffe Arena
