Hi to all members.
After a lot of talk and multitudes of e mails flying back and forth on this subject I think we may have arrived at a workable arrangement. Gerry has done most of the groundwork with the management at the Coachmakers and after discussions with him, I am, as Chairman taking the initiative because the league season has already started and the matter has to be resolved.
In the weeks when there are two home league matches, then Wednesday will be the default evening for playing Club competition games upstairs. By special arrangement other evenings may be available but there will be no extra designated club evening as the pub management reserve the right to make the room available to other organizations.
As these extra sessions, even Wednesday, cannot always be guaranteed, it will be necessary for would-be players to contact the Coachmakers to clear it with the management there (Chris or Roy 01603 662080). I imagine that the previous Thursday club evening would be the most straightforward time to do it. On the arranged evening you then collect the equipment cupboard key, leave the room as you found it and return the key to the bar when you leave. Please take note of these conditions as this is an extra free-of-charge concession from the Coachmakers.
Remember, we do not have use of the Matthew Project car park other than on a Thursday and we may not have that for much longer!
Comments and observations, please.
Regards to all,
Ken Ellis (Chairman)
