Last year we conducted a survey about the Monday night session. The results, in summary and then by each question are described in the document below:
Monday Night Survey Results.
The key actions proposed are:
- Keep the mix of events and event lengths broadly unchanged
- Keep the number of boards at 27-28
- Keep the main night on Monday but run a test event on a Tuesday night (this will be the Masters Teams commencing Tue 23 April 2019 for 3 weeks)
Move the session start time forward to 7.15pm – this will commence from the start of the next events:
- Masters Teams on Tue 23 April
- State Mixed Pairs qualifying on Mon 29 April
The next Club Level Directors' course will be held at the NSWBA on Saturday May 11, 2019.
