Would you like a name badge?

The badge is a split heart filled with card suits and your name will be in the split with Denton Bridge Studio in smaller letters under your name. The color of the badge is a white back ground with black lettering and has a magnetic back.

A picture of the badge can be seen on the bulletin board at the studio.

PLAYERS RESPONSIBILITIES

INCORRECT SCORES???

We are attempting to reduce the
number of incorrect
contract reports and other errors.

“North” responsibilities are:

Verify the correct pair number

Verify the correct boards

Enter the correct contract

Enter the correct lead card

Enter the correct tricks taken

Verify the information is correct with east/west

It is not enough for pairs to only check the score.

It is up to each pair to check the Bridge Pad
for the following information:

Contract

Information About Our Web Site

Why do we have a "Members Only" page? Why do I need a password to read the page?
The "Members Only" page provides you with registered players phone numbers and emails that play at Denton Bridge Studio. Registration is needed to provide privacy to our members. Two great things about the page is our members can post ads or announcements and there is a tab in the member area that if clicked on will take you to a form to fill out requesting a partner. Both are great tools for our members and needs to be used more.

Why are the Master Points different from my records/or what is reported?
The Master Points might be different if there were changes to overall score results and the game was not re-uploaded into the data base.

How do I change my email or phone number?
Members are responsible for updating their own member information on the member page. You must sign in to do any changes. For email changes, it is not enough to change it on the web site page. Our email data base that generates emails to you and the web site are not integrated; you must notify the studio email too at dentonbridgestudio@gmail.com
.

Where can I find the address and directions to the studio?
The address is located in the menu on the left side of the web page. Select “information”, a drop down menu bar will appear and you can find the address and a map under “how to find us” & a address and list of games in “where & when”.


How do I access the results?
You can access the results in one of three ways:

  • Click the link "Latest Results" at the top right of the screen to see the last game held at the studio
  • Click on "Results" in the Menu Screen on the left side of the screen and select the date you want to view
  • Scroll down to the lower right and click on one of the last three games that were played.

    What will you see when you get to a results page? 
    You will see the deal information with makeable contracts, what other teams bid, the lead card and the scores. This is a fantastic tool for you to improve your game.

    Title Bars and Links
    A lot of the information on the web site is found by clicking on the title bars and links. Title Bars usually do not have any information under them. Once the user clicks on the title bar, a new window will open displaying the information that is needed. The links are usually a single word that stands alone at the end of the article. When you roll over the word with your mouse, the link changes to an underlined word that usually changes color. Click on that underlined word (link) and you will be redirected to the information that you were seeking.
