Tournament clock: Jean White reported for Howard that the bridge timer purchased on July 28th from ACBL, was installed September 19th—20th and that two of our directors, Marge Harrison and Howard MacDonald, were given verbal instructions for its use. Detailed written instructions are in a white binder labeled Bridge Timer on the director’s desk.
New Sign for Club House: Howard also reported that he visited “Sign Pro” about the sign that needs to be replaced in front of the Club House. He sent eight proofs for the Board to consider and if possible, make a decision. The Board likes the font of # 7, but recommends that the sign be easy to read, with a lot of contrast, for ex, if the sign could be white with black letters they would prefer that.
