NEW..

Hi all

I have been asked to post a brief explanation of the host system..

1)  When you arrive as host you should not attach yourself to anyone until you know you will play with them. In the meantime I think it is ok to discuss what conventions you will play but on the understanding that someone else may arrive without a partner.

2)  As host it is strongly recommended that you do not take a seat with anyone until we are about to start. This of course means "floating" and discussing any conventions away from a table smiley. It also means you are excused from making up any boards!

3)  If, as often happens, you end up as a spare player, you will be the only person who has to go home. The exception ( only on a Monday ) is if you are able to make up a table by playing with "bidders" i.e. whoever is free at the time of each board. You should be aware that going home is a very realistic eventuality.

4)  Please do not be frightened to play with one of an existing pair if you are NOT host and one of the pair is! The only person who should ever have to go home is the host ( that's kinda the point! ). Do not be intimidated by any players, no matter who, into going home when you don't need to. Of course you are not obliged to play, even having turned up on the day, but you shouldn't leave unless you are 100% happy to!

5)  As some of you know, there is an option, with regards to EBU National Grading Scheme ( NGS ) scoring, to claim exemption when you play as host. You will need to let scorer and / or director know before you start playing. The option is given because you may have very little time to discuss your system with a player you haven't much played with. Of course if you are host and play with your regular partner in the end then the option doesn't apply.

6)  Betty does a very good job arranging hosts. Please be sure when you agree to be host that you make a note and remember to turn up! Rarely has our host not arrived but it can be very disconcerting when it does happen.

7) It is thought that each player should be hosting at least once ( more likely twice ) a year..

Happy hosting!  

On another tack..

Here are listed amendments made after a session ( by checking the computer against traveller scores ) before finalising an event.

Love Stats..?

Welcome to Blackheath Bridge Club
Welcome to Visitors and Members
Welcome to Visitors and Members

 

We meet at Mycenae House near the Royal Standard on Monday and Thursday at 7:15 pm and Wednesday at 1:15 pm. Sessions last about three hours.

The club is affiliated to the EBU and master points are awarded.

We have a host for players coming alone on almost all Mondays and on those Thursdays when there is no special event. Dates when there is no host are shown on the Menu item 'Hosts and Special Events'.  On Wednesdays and when no host is shown our Pairing Officer can usually find you a partner.

On Wednesday and Thursday there is disabled access.

Most of us play simple systems (4 card or 5 card majors) though no systems are excluded.

Usually we play duplicate Bridge with Neuberg scoring but see calendar for variations.
