Disabled Parking

The issues around Disabled Parking were raised at the AGM, in particular the mobility difficulties of some members and the obstruction of the lane way.
In response John commented that it had been an ongoing problem and it would be discussed at the first committee meeting.
The committee discussed the matter and acknowledged that, as the car-park is a public car-park we are unable to designate official “Disabled Parking” places, however after discussion the following motion was passed:
"that the laneway next to our club rooms be reserved for those members who are unable to access the club house from the road or the car-park."
Further, directors will be asked to announce this at our regular sessions, and to request that members leave the spaces close to the club house for those players with Access Parking Permits who are able to enter the club house from the carpark spaces nearest the clubhouse.
Further all members are reminded that the exit from the lane way onto the carpark must be left clear at all time in case Emergency vehicles need access, in which case vehicles parked there may have to drive through quickly.

Adjournment of AGM

As the Financial Report was unavailable on Saturday part of the AGM was adjourned. The Constitution states:

"31. Adjournment
(1) The chairperson of a general meeting at which a quorum is present may, with the consent of the majority of members present at the meeting, adjourn the meeting from time to time and place to place, but no business is to be transacted at an adjourned meeting other than the business left unfinished at the meeting at which the adjournment took place.
(2) If a general meeting is adjourned for 14 days or more, the secretary must give written or oral notice of the adjourned meeting to each member of the association stating the place, date and time of the meeting and the nature of the business to be transacted at the meeting."

A notice of the date, time and place for the report to be received and the meeting finalised will be given to each member, either by email or mail, as soon as possible. If you have any questions please contact Toni Gorman (Sec) on 0421110709 or


a) Wednesday 23rd May Pairs
b) Thursday 31st Australia Wide Novice Pairs (afternoon session)


The club will be running a CPR (and general first aid) course on Friday afternoon, May 25, starting at 1:30 pm. It will be conducted by Lawrie Ransom. Some of you will recall that Lawrie ran a course for us some time ago and it was excellent. Everyone is welcome, and who knows, what you learn may very well save someone's life.

Website Update

Hello Everyone, I have updated the website to show our Club Constitution, also updated the broken link to Brisbane Waters Results and also reintroduced the Contact Us information at the top. Cheers Gary.


At our last committee meeting it was decided to send three novice teams to various congresses. So, if you are a novice player and would like to play in a local congress this is for you. The club will pay the entry fee for three teams. The conditions of entry are:

The committee chose four congresses. The two coming up shortly are Maitland (May 6) and Newcastle (June 16 & 17)
If you are interested please see a committee member.


The CCBC Recorder is Kerry Johnman who has accepted the committee's unanimous nomination.
The Role statement of Recorder for CCBC has been revisited and altered to be more in line with NSWBA description of the position. A copy of the Roles and Responsibilities is in a white folder on the East side of the club.

I have placed a grey set of drawers near the folders - one drawer is marked "RECORDER" and your written communications can be placed there. If you need an envelope please ask for one.

Additionally I have dedicated one drawer to mail, so any mail you have can be placed there. Letters to the committee should be addressed to the Secretary.

If you have any questions please ask.
