Most sessions are hosted, so you may come without a partner
No host on Ladder Competition day
Congratulations to the winner of this month's Player of the Month competition, David Keith with an average score of 61.36%, very well done. The prize for the "best regular" member goes to Morag Gibson with an average score of 53.60% and our award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to Ayako Salamon with 57.13% Well played to all....see David for your prizes
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 !

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.

Player of the Month
You will have seen the player of the month section in our "Competitions". It is automatically updated each time a session is added by the scorer.
The rules have been simplified - you no longer have to play with different partners, it is worked out on the average percentage achieved & you must play a minimum of 4 sessions ( 5 if there happen to be 5 Mondays or Wednesdays in the month)
NEW - For players that attend every session in a calendar month - there will be a special prize of a free session in the following month for the person with the best percentage. Also there is a prize for the best performance from the players rated NGS 8 or below.
So, keep an eye on your position in the table. Winners of these 3 prizes will be announced on the website & prizes presented on 1st session of the following month, when it all starts off again
There will also be a special prize for the overall Player of the Year - this is awarded on placing points rather than percentage...8 points for a win, 7 for second place etc
