Table Money

Dear Member,

Please be advised of our new way of recording table money. We ask you to complete a payment

slip with the total amount and your signature. This should be placed inside the envelope along with the table money and only the date should be recorded on the outside of the envelope. I would ask that the same is done when counting tea money.

Payment slips will be beside envelopes in the cupboards or behind the bar.

Thanks for your assistance.

Loraine

Treasurer.

Bridge Club Bank Account

Dear Member,

In my previous message regarding the membership renewal I attached a membership form. There was a typo – the Bridge Club bank account number is 00160048 – not 00160047 as the form says.

My apologies for inconvenience caused.

With best wishes,

Fumi

EGM Vote

Dear Members

The result of the EGM vote on 24 August was decisive support for our application for charity status (49 votes for and 2 votes against). I showed 6 slides and attach these for information, as requested by a few of you. We are now finalising the club’s application for charity status and will let you know of progress in the next newsletter and at the AGM on Fri 23 Nov at 6 pm. Please put this date/time in your diaries and attend if at all possible. The AGM is followed by food and by a fun bridge tournament, which is designed to mix members, old and new, experienced and less so. No one should fear critical comments – these are not allowed on this fun night.

NEW SPARE PLAYER INITIATIVE FOR THE NEW SEASON (Thursday evenings)

Dear Members,

The committee at its last meeting decided to try out a scheme which has been successful in other clubs. We are aware that some members shy away because they cannot find a regular partner.

On Thursday evenings downstairs beginning this week on the 6th of September we invite you to enter the tournament without a partner.  Please let us know if you intend playing by entering your name on the noticeboard at the bottom of the entry sheet or phone the club by 6.15 to enter.

This initiative can only work if we have a list of volunteers willing to come along ready to play but should they not be required they will have to go home.

Volunteers will receive a voucher to play for free in the club, either on the night, or on any other occasion where regular club tournaments are taking place. Vouchers will be kept in the bar till for you to collect on the night.

Our first volunteer is Fumi. I would be grateful if you could let me know if you are willing to be a spare player on a Thursday evening.  That way we compile a list. It would be great to get volunteers for the following 5 weeks.  We will remind you of course that you have enlisted for a particular evening.  My email address is

Kind regards,

The spacious venue is fully air-conditioned throughout and as Kusadasi is one of Turkey’s safe and secular tourist jewels like its close neighbour Bodrum, the event promises to be memorable.
