4. Membership of the club is currently set so that Full Members will normally be able to play even
   when the club is busy. When membership of OBC is at capacity what strategy would you prefer?
   (Tick only one option)

    Close the membership and set the table limit at 19
    Close the membership and set the table limit at 21 (means no tea break when sessions are full)
    Continue to allow new members to join and handle crowded sessions under current rules
    Continue to allow new members to join and increase playing space to 23 tables
    Continue to allow new members to join and increase playing space to 26 tables
    Continue to allow new members to join and increase playing space to 32 or more tables

N.B. Note that the last three options require major changes to the current club or new premises. Add any
    further comments here:




5. There are two categories of membership that control when members may play. Associate
membership allows the member to play at Monday morning sessions, Tuesday morning sessions,
Rubber Bridge sessions and also at Thursday evening sessions when they take place; Full
membership or equivalent additionally allows the member to play at Wednesday evening and Friday
evening sessions.


Pressure on numbers may be alleviated by adding extra sessions. Please indicate which of the
following suggestions you would support. (Tick each that apply)

    Add a weekly evening Associate Member session
    Add an additional Full Member session one afternoon
    Add an additional Associate Member session one afternoon
    Add more teams evenings
    Add a weekend session
    None of the above
