Outline of Club Championships and other games for 2014

After the AGM the Match Committee had a meeting with President Warren to discuss the events for 2014. After a lot of discussion it was agreed that the club consists of something like a 129 members and we need to recognise that and provide events for everybody not just a few. So with that in mind we decided that the program should be made so all members can enter the competitions. This meant that some formats for club championship would be changed and become a graded or made more accessible to all members.

We realize that not everybody will like the new formats but we hope the majority will and therefore enter the competitions.
