Paul Cherin proposed a pro-am game on a Tuesday. It would be a one session event.  The actual game would run slower than a normal club game to allow time for the "pro" and the "amateur" to discuss the hands.  Threr would be a question and answer period after the game. It would be used as a mentoring event  The details would be worked out later and it would require Cheryl Jones' agreement..
Paul then put the above proposal in the form of a motion
