No host on Ladder Competition day
Congratulations to the joint winners of this month's Player of the Month competition, Pawel and Tony with an average score of 58.02%, very well done. The prize for the "best regular" member is also a joint effort for Barbara & Paul with an average score of 56.32% and our award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to Steve Waterworth with 52.67% Well played to all....good thing we stocked up on the wine !!
We have set the limit for players eligible for this award by using the EBU's National grading system - all members of Grade 8 and under qualify - bear in mind that players' grades can go up & down during a month, so we are taking the ranking on the last day of the month as the member's official grade for that month.
If you do not know your NGS rating - you can find it on the EBU website in the "NGS" section. Type your surname in the search box once you get to the page & it should appear. Players that are ungraded or suppress their rating won't be included in the monthly competition although will still qualify for the main player of the month. If you can't find it, we have a list of all registered members' ratings - just email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will find it for you.
Good Luck & enjoy your bridge in 2018 !
Many Congratulations to Pat & Marco on their Golden Wedding Anniversary

Dear Members and Guests, please arrive and take a seat a good ten minutes before the start of play.
If you are definitely coming to play but are running late, please make sure that the director or your partner knows that you are on your way. This is necessary to facilitate the setting up of the computer as it is a lot of trouble to restart the movement to accommodate late arrivals and in some cases might not be possible. A prompt start ensures a smooth session that finishes on time so please help the director and scorers as best you can to do the best job that they can. Thank you and we hope that you like the new scoring facility.
Please remember to let all players at the table see the results.
CONGRATULATIONS TO CHRIS WALL AND CHRIS WRIGHT
