Players of the Month - September 2017

Congratulations to the winner of this month's Player of the Month competition Konrad Mau with 59.49%..well done.. The prize for the "best" regular member goes again to Brian Grimwood with 56.85% and our award for the "Level 8 & Under" Player of the Month goes jointly to Brian Heard & Martin McDonagh with 53.88%. Well played to 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 !

 

 
Welcome to Aces Bridge Club
JACK LONDON MIXED PAIRS COMPETITION
JACK LONDON MIXED PAIRS COMPETITION

On Monday 30th October we will hold our annual mixed pairs event in memory of Jack London. There is a beautiful trophy for the winners & keepsake replicas for the leading pairs. Please come along as a mixed pair if you can, but everyone is welcome to participate. Only a mixed pair can carry off the trophy though. Jack's wife Sue, who has generously donated the trophy & prizes for you, will come along to Aces on 6th November to make the presentations. Please arrive in plenty of time on both days to assist organisation

OLD STYLE POUND COINS

Please note that old style pound coins will no longer be legal tender after October 15th 2017

We will not be able to accept them after this date

Marco and I will be away from October 7th - 14th and would greatly appreciate it if only new coins are used for payments during this week as I understand that banks will be unwilling to accept old coins by the time that we return

 

 

Thank you ❤️

A very wet and gloomy morning was greatly brightened up with the lovely card I received from club members. Thank you all...shame I couldn't have got a gold medal to show you but this silver one is the best thing I've ever won as the opposition was so strong. We'll have an extra slice of  cake to celebrate soon ! 🍰 Catherine x

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 !
