Permitted Agreements - Orange Book 2012

From 2013 onwards the EBU has ceased maintain level 3 replacing the orange book with the blue book.. The Chiltern League will continue to use the Level 3 as defined by the final version of the orange book which can be found under rules.

SCHOOLS PROGRAMME
The League runs a very successful program for introducing bridge into local schools using local volunteers. We have two training sessions to teach our teachers how to teach first Minibridge and then bridge as we all know it. The programme received a massive boost in its early years when it was awarded over 9000 to buy dealing machines, cards and boards. 

Youth and Educational Trust has awarded the Chiltern Bridge League 2500 for purchasing boards and cards for the schools project. This has enabled us to help neighbouring counties start similar initiatives.
ABOUT THE LEAGUE

The Chiltern Bridge League was formed in 1967 to allow clubs to play matches while keeping travel to a minimum. The league operates under license from the English Bridge Union and awards MPs on the District scale.

The league organizes leagues for Teams of Eight and Teams of Four in the period September to March. The Spring Cup for fours starts with a round-robin stage and the qualifiers proceed to the knockout stage. The League has a single pairs event, the Elimination Pairs, with heats in clubs and the qualifiers meeting for the final. The season's bridge concludes with an evening of Fours in July at which the year's trophies are presented. EBU level 3 applies to all events though club heats may use the club's standard if it is lower.

All Team of Eight captains form the committee along with the executive (President, Chairman, Treasurer). Clubs without a team of eight may choose to have a representative on the committee. The executive may co-opt members to the committee for special projects.
