Smedley Salver Cancellation This Week

Due to the inconsiderate actions of the England football team there will be insufficient people at Spondon on Wednesday, 9th July to allow a viable competition to take place. This round has therefore been cancelled.

As a result the following changes have been made to the rules (for this year only)

1. Pairs need to play in at least 3 rounds out of the 5 available to qualify (from 4 out of 6)

2. The final score in the Smedley Salver will be calculated based on the best 3 scores acheived whilst playing in the event.

Unfortunately suggestions, such as another Wednesday (September!) or playing on a Thursday, may well be intrinsically unfair to a section of the people playing and, as such, are not viable alternatives.

Please let anyone you are aware of who does not look at this Web Site know.

DCBA Competitions Rules

We will be holding our review of competitions rules on 5th July. Our current rules are available via a side tab on this website, if anyone has any suggested amendments or issues they feel need addressing please pass them in writing (or marked up existing version) to Ken Smith, Derek Turner or Jim Parker by Wed 4th July.

Ian and his partner Tommy finished 6th  out of 61 pairs in the U26 qualification round and then 3rd in the final to win the Bronze!

Well done!

Spondon Safari Weekend July 7th/8th

Spondon village is holding a 'Spondon Safari' on the weekend of July 7th and 8th, click here for details.  There will be lots of places open in the village and lots of events happening.  The Old School will be open and we would like to encourage new members by having people play bridge and talk about bridge to them.  If you could spare a couple of hours on either of those days to come and have a relaxed game (no table money), that would be great.

No need to bring a partner! Please let Mary know if you are able to come. Email msbmarshall@w3z.co.uk

DCBA Competitions

The rules of our competitions are published on the DCBA website and details of our calendar and competitions (Sept-Aug) are published in our members hand book. This year we emailed the document to as many members that we could and it is also available via this website. Each year competitions are discussed at our AGM and then the competitions subcommittee meet in June/July to finalise the new calendar and agree any competition changes, the calendar/members hand book is then approved at the following main committee meeting. If any members have any comments or suggestions please try and attend the AGM on May 3rd 2018 and then members attending can agree or make comment. Should you have comments or suggestions and are unable to attend the AGM please pass them to the DCBA secretary (Jim Parker; Mob 07980716894; jimparker@totalise.co.uk) or your Club’s DCBA Representative and they can be raised at the AGM on your behalf. Please try and avoid making suggestions too close to an event as often it is too late to make changes and may only increase the stress levels of the event organisers. Your input will be appreciated and making it at the right time means we can evaluate your suggestion and hopefully improve our competitions for the benefit of members.
