Position of Secretary

Earlier this month I spoke to John and Norm and tended my resignation as Secretary and Committee Member. This resignation becomes effective at the close of business today, 17th November, 2017. I thank all the members, the current committee and past committees for their tremendous support and assistance over the last five years. Thank you.

RECORDER

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.

Alerting Rule Changes - 1 August 2013

When you open 1C or a natural 1NT there will be no need to alert the bid. Instead, the responder must announce the meaning of the bid.

1NT Give the strength range, 12-14, 15-17 or whatever applies

1C The announcement depends on the system:

For a natural system, the responder announces the minimum length guaranteed.
For a strong club system, the point range is announced.
For a club opening with multiple meanings, it is announced ‘unusual’.
