DECrease Misboardings in DECember
Law 7A: When a board is to be played it is placed in the centre of the table till play is completed.
Quite simple really – do not remove the board from the table, do not move it to the side so that it cannot be seen, do not turn it through 90◦. Just leave it in the centre of the table!
(It is all right to move it a short distance to accommodate dummy, but it MUST stay where it can be clearly seen by all 4 players, with the compass signs pointing towards the correct players.)
The aim is to cut down the risk of someone returning a hand to the wrong slot, creating extra work for the scorer, or making it impossible for the board to be scored, and so spoiling the tournament.
Also, players are entitled to check the vulnerability and dealer during the course of play.
Place just one board on the table at a time.
This makes it easier to score, and stops the unfortunate confusion when one player takes a hand from one board and the other three players take their hands from another….. you think that never happens??

We could do with a few more tables on a Wednesday afternoon. It is a friendly event starting at 1pm so an early finish, avoiding the rush-hour traffic. You don't even need a partner! Joan Forsyth has 'persuaded' volunteers to come along in case you need one.Biff will be in attendance in his Salón de té to provide snack lunches and refreshing afternoon teas.Who can resist?
Because of disappointing numbers it has been decided to suspend the Thursday Evening 'Early Finish' event. The good news is that it will be reinstated during the summer months when most clubs are closed.

The SBU Membership records are now available live. You can also access them using the "Useful Links" to your left. You may have to ask Janet Rixon for an access code.
In an effort to be fair to both sides, the Play Committee decided that East West will sit out on odd week number and North South will sit out on even week numbers if possible. By that we mean that certain movements require that East West sit out and that can not be avoided. Week number are obtained from any good diary. The SBU diary, of course, gives week numbers (five left for purchase!)
Dundee Bridge Club is sponsoring an event on Tuesday 12th November in the clubhouse.
Tickets are priced at £6 each and all proceeds go to Children in Need. The same hands are being played nationally and if you do well you will get a huge number of master points. Enter as a pair, but of you are looking for a pertner, either phone XX or go to the memebers section and put your name in the "Partners Wanted section.
