1. Matters Arising From Previous Meeting
Investigations of the previous venue (The Arena) and one the venues we originally
rejected (The Cricket Club) have not proved fruitful.
The only available room at the Arena is too small and the cost would be prohibitive. There
have been improvements at the Cricket Club but the available room would still be used as
a thoroughfare for non-bridge folk.
Thus the committee agreed to remain at the Golf Club for the time being.
2. Financial Update
With the current average of 5 tables each week we are losing money. This is still not a
problem in the short term but the committee need to consider ways forward at the next
3. Teams of Eight
We will be entering a single team this year (in division 2). Fixtures and dates will be
available towards the end of August. Action: SD
A team captain needs to be identified. Action: All
4. Children In Need SIM
We will be taking part on the Children In Need Sim again this year. The date for the
competition is November 13th.
The committee would like to re-instate some of the competition nights. To this end the
following have been organised:
Summer Competition: August 21st
Aggregate Competition: November 6th
Winter Competition: Feb/March 2018
6. Date of Next Meeting
