Christmas break 2019/20
In previous years few comments have been about the arrangements for the Christmas break. There seems no solution that satisfies everyone’s needs. Taking the holiday period as including both Christmas Eve and January 2nd, the holiday spans 10 days. That is a tight fit if we take a two-week break but it should be recognised that many members would object if we were to take a three-week break. The sensible solution seems to be that we are flexible. So although leagues are scheduled to end on 20th December teams not wanting to play close to Christmas are encouraged to re-arrange matches. The club will be open on the mornings of Wednesday 1st through to Friday 43rd January 2020 for catch-up matches plus roll-up. (Please note there are no free sessions.) League matches restart on Monday 6th January 2020.

Proposed events:  Monday Night Bingo sessions will continue as normal.
(Monday 20th January, 17th February, 16th March and 13th April)
