There is a list up in the club of people looking for partners for specific sessions, so please add your name if you are interested ♠ ♥ ♦ ♣
Congratulations to the winner of this month's Player of the Month competition, Mike Bryant with an average score of 58.79%, very well done. The prize for the "best regular" member goes to Morag Gibson with an average score of 52.42% and our award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to Bobbie Goodfellow with 54.17% Well played to all....please 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 email@example.com and I will find it for you.
Good Luck & enjoy your bridge in 2018 !
We are very sad to announce the death of long standing member and friend of Aces, Ron Young
Our deepest sympathy goes to Doreen and her family at this very sad time
Funeral details will be posted when available

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
