Saturday 18 January 2020, 7 pm: Members committee meeting followed by nibbles, hosted by Chris & Theresa. All members welcome; pls say if you’e coming so they can know numbers to cater for – We can look at our activities for the year, including arrangements for our Chilli Quiz Evening (28 March), maybe a cycle ride (the one postponed last year, along Granite Way on Dartmoor); we can also look at what we can do to attract more players and members, maybe making improvements to our facilities (and applying for a grant for this?). We could also look at drawing up an improved constitution…
Pls bring your diaries and your ideas – or if you can’t come, drop us a line with any suggestions you have.
The meeting will start at 7, and if we focus on the agenda during the meeting, then we will be rewarded with nibbles to follow – thanks so much to Theresa and Chris for hosting us. Please let secretary Chris W (821409) know whether you hope to make it to the meeting, so we can have an approximate idea of numbers to help Theresa and Chris with the catering. We can also give directions to anyone not sure of the way.
