General Pool Sessions: Membership Survey Results

The results of the survey regarding use of the General Pool Sessions can be found here in pdf format.

As recently communicated in the Club E-Alert, the Committee has ratified the proposals on the final page, and the Thursday late General Pool Session will close, with Thursday 9 May 2013 being the last General Pool Session held.  The Wednesday session will continue to be held, with charges reduced to £6/- members and £8/- non-members on the same date.  All are welcome from Thursday to the Wednesday session.

The committee is currently evaluating what to do with the Thursday night pool booking, and is endeavouring to plan activity that delivers fiscal neutrality.
