BEGINNERS BRIDGE CLUB

Beginners Sessions will be held every Thursday from 1.30 p.m. until 3.30 p.m. at the Quaker Meeting House

No partner is required. The hosts will make up pairs.

The aim is to have a sociable duplicate bridge session in a friendly atmosphere.

Beginners use basic Acol as their bidding system. There is no formal teaching but more experienced players are on hand to advise.

Anyone interested should contact Bob Ferris on 01206 866 845 or 07963 772393 or by email

PLEASE DON'T BE LATE
Players are requested to arrive at least 15 minutes before play is due to start.
 
The reason for this is simple, the Director has to sort out which movement is to be played and if people arrive late this will often mean that the movement to be played has to be changed at the last moment.
 
Not only does this cause problems for the Director but it delays the start of play and thus disrupts the afternoon for those players who have arrived on time. 

 

PLEASE HELP THE SCORER
Filling out Travellers is not rocket science and when they are not completed correctly can cause major problems for the scorer. Please observe the following

1. North is responsible for PRINTING on the back of one of the Travellers the FULL names of BOTH the pairs playing on their first table with the pair numbers and their positions. East must check that this has been done correctly.

2. North is responsible for completing the Traveller after each board is played. East must then be shown the Traveller and it is their responsibility to check that what has been entered is correct.

3. ALL players must pay attention to what they are being told before play begins and during the breaks in between rounds

The simple observance of the above will make life much easier for everyone especially the scorer.

Your attention is also drawn to the article Etiquette During Play in the left hand margin on the Web Site, as observance of these few points will make the afternoon more enjoyable for everyone
