In 2018, Claygate will start rolling out the wireless scoring system called BridgePal, which runs on smartphones and tablets.  The implementation team today consists of Gavin Wilson and Carol Wildig, but more volunteers will be very welcome.  We will provide as much help and training as each North needs to enter the scores into the handset.

Further information about BridgePal can be found here.

Welcome to Claygate Bridge Club
 
 
  Attention all Norths: a request for your help ...

We had four incidents on Monday evening of handsets needing to be replaced because they had lost contact with the WiFi signal.  The scoring team is trying hard to identify what is causing the problem. It could be a WiFi hardware error, a WiFi setting problem, a scorer error, a user error, or a number of other root causes.

Just in case one of the factors is user error, I will list a few recommendations here, day by day:

  1. Please don't switch the tablet on and off when you encounter a problem.  This is almost never the solution.  On the other hand, stopping and restarting the BridgePal app is often successful. I'll show you how to do this later this week.
  2. Don't put your coat and handbag on top of the WiFi router when you arrive.  It's hard to see how this could help.
  3. Please don't start other apps or switch to Elmbridge Free WiFi. You may feel confident you know Android, perhaps through your phone, but making the scoring handset different to all the others can only make things more difficult for the Scorer if there is a problem. 

Best wishes

Gavin and the rest of the Scoring team

  Cometh the AGM, 11th March

This year's AGM is scheduled for 7pm on Monday 11th March.

Please come along. The AGM is only as exciting as you make it.  If you would like to add an item to the Agenda, please send an email to kay@claygater.uk.  If you would like to stand for a committee position, please let Kay know.

At this distance from the meeting, there looks to be nothing too dramatic to report.  A provisional draft of the 2018 accounts is already on this website.  There are no plans to increase subscriptions or table money. All the existing committee members are happy to stand for re-election.  Our biggest structural problem comes from having just two regular directors. And with at least one committee member saying "Just one more year", the club needs an inflow of replacements to keep the committee thriving.

Cometh the AGM, 11th March
  Quite a lot to play for as Club Championship nears climax

There is just one more round left in this members-only tournament.  Remember that your pair needs to play at least four of the seven rounds to qualify. 

This league is compiled manually by the chairman, not automatically by computer.  So there is plenty of scope for error.  If you find a mistake, please let me know at gavin@claygater.uk before 1st February.

  Council Ban on e-Cigarettes and Vaping inside council buildings

The committee has received notification from Elmbridge that 'the council's policy is to prohibit the use of all e-cigarettes and vaping devices in ‘No smoking areas’ in all council buildings. This means that smoking inside a council building will not be permitted.'  

Our apologies to members affected by vaping or its banishment.  We hope members will understand that all we can do is to abide by the rules.

  Information for Visitors about the Club

We play Duplicate Pairs each Monday, except Bank Holidays.

The club is affiliated to the EBU, so every session attracts Masterpoints for the highest-ranked players on the night.

Play starts at 7.30 pm, but all players must arrive by 7.20 pm.

A session normally consists of 24 boards, and it should be over by 10.30 pm.

Visitors are very welcome.

We always play at Claygate Centre for the Community, Elm Road, Claygate KT10 0EH.

Commonly called the 'Day Centre', its phone number is: 01372 463476    Map  

The cost per player, which covers both play and refreshments, is:

£2.00 for members, and £3.00 for visitors.

As the club is approaching its limit of 110 members, we may soon have to introduce a waiting list for membership applications.
