During June and July if the weather is good the hall will be available for longer and there will be a later finishing time. Please see the calendar.

HOST AND PARTNER FINDING

We want to ensure that everyone who wants to get a game at Broadstairs can do so. The Message Board has always been available for anyone wishing to leave requests for partners and continues to be so. Also in the in the Members Area of the web site requests for partners can be placed against specific events in the calendar and this also continues.

However we are introducing two new services which are being run by Peter Webster. The first is a Partner Finding Service.

 If you know you will need a partner call and leave a message, or text Peter Webster on 07710 419241, or email him on prwebster@hotmail.co.ukPlease leave contact details, dates, and any preferences.  He will co-ordinate the service, keeping a list for all partner requests for upcoming sessions, and notify you if a suitable partner is available.

Please try to register your partner requests at least 24 hours in advance, as on-the-day requests may be difficult to match.

If anybody does not regularly play a particular session, but is happy to consider occasional games with those seeking a partner at short notice, please register an interest.

Finally from Wednesday July 6th we are able to guarantee a partner for single players on Wednesday evenings (apart from special events such as Sim pairs) through our new Host System.

To get a game please telephone Peter on 07710 419241 on the Wednesday as early as possible (if possible before 12.00 noon), and in any event before 5pm. Leave a message including your name and that you want to play that night and turn up at the club by 6:40pm. If there are an even number of such requests you will be paired up on arrival. If there are an odd number the host will play to make up the numbers. The host will be contacted either way by 5:30pm to be told whether or not they are needed.

Regular Wednesday players are expected to act as host no more than once a year. Please look on the calendar to see on which night you are needed. If you cannot make that date please swap with another member and let Peter know so that the records can be updated. Please make sure you are available to receive the call from Peter between 5 and 5:30pm.

This service is meant to be a facility for vistors and members whose regular partner is not available. It is not intended to be used on a long-term basis as a substitute for establishing a regular partnership.
