Dates for September Blitz and AGM

Hi all

Just wanted to give you an update, there will be a blitz next Thursday the 19th 7.45pm in the Bridge Club.
The AGM will then take place on the 26th at 7.45pm.
A detailed agenda has been sent out, if you didn’t receive an email please let me know.

The two main points of discussion will be:
1. A small increase to the membership rate to cover the cost of Public Liability Insurance.
2. Proposal to join the Munster League – details are in the agenda and if you are interested in joining please let me know so I can get a gauge on interest.

All the best
James
