Players of the Month - May 2017

Congratulations to the winner of this month's Player of the Month competition - Gordon Southgate with 57.73% - let me just check that again - yes it's true, well done Gordon !! wink.. The prize for the "best" regular member goes to Diana Potter with a score of 52.91% and our new award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes to Denis Protheroe with 57.02%. 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 2017 !

We are pleased to announce that we will once again be holding the 3 month competition in memory of Jean Luboff, who spent many happy hours at Aces and was a loyal, longstanding member.

The event will be held on the second Wednesdays in June, July & August - "Ladder Day"- and there are prizes for the overall best performance, best 2 from 3 sessions, individual sessions and a non-expert prize. Please join in - guests are welcome if your regular partner is away on holiday, but only members may win the overall prize & trophy.

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 !
