Tuesday 29 January is our next '5th Tues/Thurs' teams evening. If you've already arranged a team of four for the evening, that's fine. If not, we can join up pairs into teams on the night on a first come first served basis.
All Bath BC members (and visitors as well) are welcome to play in this event – do come along and join us.
NOTE: Pairs not in a team will be paired up on the night, but the last such pair to turn up may not find partners and may therefore not be able to play. It is therefore recommended that pairs seeking partners should email Richard Samter (email@example.com) and try to get teamed up in advance. Pairs who have emailed in advance will be treated as having arrived first.
Many congratulations to Bath B - Valerie Austwick, James Dunlop, Susie Gall, Trevor Purches, Marianne Lewin, John Perry, Richard Moore and John Treble - who proved the club's selectors wrong by winning the Wiltshire heat of the national teams-of-8 Garden Cities competition. They beat Bath A by 1 VP after a scoring error was discovered.
We wish them luck in the South-west Regional Final on 27th April.
Cash and cheques should be given either to Neil or to that evening's director.
As we're an EBU club, we use the EBU Blue Book to determine which bidding systems and conventions we are permitted to use.
For most of our sessions, we comply with Level 4, which allows most systems/conventions that most players are likely to be familiar with.
For our Thursday morning Gentle Duplicate and Monday evening Assisted Play, however, we are limited to Level 2, which limits players to fairly simply bidding systems and common conventions: Stayman, transfers and Blackwood are all fine.
If you're not sure about the suitability of any parts of your system, ask any experienced Club Director for guidance. Alternatively, click here for a link to the Blue Book on the EBU website.
What to do if this issue comes up at the table? See our guidance in Doing things right ... (you can find this via Articles in the menu, left).
What level is right for me?
With the growing choice of daytime and evening sessions now available at Bath BC, newer members and visitors may not be sure which options best suit their level of ability and experience.
If you're in doubt, click here to consult our Guide to levels. (It's also available via the menu, left.)
And, of course, feel free to consult any committee member if you need further advice.
