Notice reviewed, no further update 10th June 2020
The Host system now operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Duplicate Pairs evenings.
Every member is on the host system.
See the list on the club notice board, in the Host Rota menu on left or click .
Please sign the list as acknowlegement. If you are not available it is your responsibility to arrange a substitute.
If you are coming to play with the host please be in the club by 7.15pm.
Please note that the host system does not operate on competition nights.
Therefore no standby on Thursday 19th or 26th March.
When you are on stand-by, or wish to use the system, you need to be at the club by 7:15 on the Tuesday evening or Thursday evening in order to be seated by 7:25 so that the director can organize the movement. If you are on stand-by and two people turn up then they will play together and you will be free to leave. If your usual partner wants to come, it would be as if they had come to use the stand-by system, and if another player comes then you would go home and your partner would play with them.
A stand-by member will not pay for the evening's play and including free tea or coffee ; if they do not play they will get a voucher for a free session, to be used on any of the sessions held on Monday evening, Tuesday evening, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday evening or Saturday evening. Please ask the director for your voucher before leaving.
Please be aware that members have different levels of experience. Whether you are a stand-by player or have come to use the system, you should enjoy the evening with your new partner.
Please initial your name on the sheet in the club to acknowledge that you have read this and that you know the date you are responsible for on the rota
