Players of the Month - January 2017

Congratulations to the winners of this month's Player of the Month competition - Craig Cooper and John Gibbons with a score of 62.27%.  Very well done.. The prize for the "best" regular member goes to Pam Green with a score of 52.85% and our new award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to Steve Crampton with 56.87%. Well played all.

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 catherine@acesbridgeclub.co.uk and I will find it for you.

Good Luck & enjoy your bridge in 2016 !

Welcome
Welcome

Welcome to Aces Bridge Club. We are a friendly daytime duplicate bridge club and we welcome new members and guests to our club. We are affiliated to the EBU and to the Kent Contract Bridge Association and run heats of county and national competitions in addition to our regular events. Master points are awarded for all sessions.

Our sessions are suitable for all levels of player - as long as you have learnt the basics, it is an ideal environment to practice your skills.

VERY IMPORTANT...WIRELESS SCORING

Dear members and guests, would you please arrive and take a seat a good 10 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 & 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 & we hope that you like the new scoring facility. Please remember to let all players see the results as you would with a traveller...just because North enters the score doesn't mean the others at the table don't want a look too !

Travellers/Names

PLEASE NUMBER THE TRAVELLERS CORRECTLY

One of the responsibilities that comes with occupying the North seat is the clear and legible filling in of names and scores on the travellers. Our scorers cannot be expected to know who John & Pam or David & Jean are...surnames too please !! Please use your best handwriting for the scoreslip & ask East to check that what you have filled in is not only accurate, but on the right line too. Thank you to all Norths
