We undertake to maintain the standards and long lasting traditions of the Club for the benefit of all members.
We are responsible for different aspects of running the club; our major responsibilities are as listed below.
If you need something, please try to find the most appropriate person to help you based on this list. For example if you have a question regarding the Wednesday evening Endgame Group, you should ask Carl Gorka as that is listed under his name.
