Please note that the Club Championship Pairs, Andrew Trevanion Memorial Silver Plate and Pat Townend Trophy will now be played on Sunday10th June 2018.
The Club AGM will be hed on Thursday 31st May 2018.
The Club Calendar has been amended to show these two date changes.
With a view to reducing the amount of printing for the AGM, the club accounts have been posted on the results noticeboard. This will also give members longer to study the accounts. The AGM will still deal with any related questions.
From the beginning of May, every Friday will be a teams duplicate, instead of the current twice a month. In addition to the normal sign-up page on the club noticeboard we will be instigating a system whereby people can seek partners or pairs can seek team mates, for the purpose of putting teams together. At present we are making these changes for a trial period. We will inform members of progress on this news page.
We are suspending Thursday evening duplicates until further notice. This is largely due to falling numbers, but also the increasing unavailability of directors.
Subscriptions for the year commencing 1 April 2018 can now be made
Members should do this by paying an additional £10.00 along with their table money, making a note on the table slip accordingly, and also entering their name together with the date of payment and the sum paid in the Members Subscription book.
On 25 May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulations come into force. We are therefore asking members to state, in the Members Subscription book, whether they give their consent to the club disclosing their contact details to other members. Enter Yes / No under the appropriate heading and also provide the telephone number and email address you wish to use.

The EBU has completed its decennial review of the laws
and issued a poster that can be accessed by clicking on the header.
The Club TDs are in the process of familiarising themselves
with the new rule book
but please make allowance for a 'bedding in' period.
However, the laws have been simplified where possible.
A new Health & Safety policy document has been produced, thanks to Vivien Aizlewood.

Any comments should be passed on to a committee member.
The Committee, in consultation with the Tournament Directors, have agreed that evening sessions will continue to start promptly at 19.00 and, as far as possible, will end by 22.30. Based on the number of pairs, the TDs will choose a movement to allow this 22.30 finish and will manage the movement accordingly, including reducing the length of the break if need be.
The TD may also remove a board if a table has fallen behind. Persistently slow pairs will be warned in the first instance and may then be subject to a procedural penalty.
To help the TD to achieve this, pairs are asked to be at the table and ready to play by 18.55 at the latest. All pairs are expected to stay until the end of the session (unless sitting out the last round)
Any queries or comments please speak to a member of the Committee
A Maintenance Book has been placed on the Noticeboard in the hallway of number 4. When any work on the Bridge Club property is required please make a note of the job in the book and add your name so the Maintenance Group can come back to you with any queries.
