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.
Following the successful mentoring scheme over the past 2 years, the club is instigating a Bridge Development Scheme. The purpose is to provide a friendly and supportive environment for people to develop their skills and confidence at all levels within the club. The programme will run on the second Thursday of each month from October to April. Ideally, club members will enroll as partnerships, but there may be scope to deal with individuals too. For further information click the title of this new item or see the notices at the club.
Unfortunately there were some errors in the web site listing of the league fixtures. They have now been corrected.
If you have made a note of them from the web site before today, you need to re-check them, either on the web page listing, or against the correct listing posted on the YCBA League Notice Board
A full list of fixtures for the 2018-19 season is published, both on this website, and on the Notice Board.
Also on the noticeboard is a sheet for you to enter your name(s) either as partnerships or as an individual, if you wish to be considered for one of the six teams we have entered into the competition
Please note that this does not commit you to playing in the same team as you did last year, since we will inevitably have to make promotions to fill vacancies.
Please may I urge to to do so as soon as possible, since setting up individuals with compatible partners is very time consumeing, and we wish to have our basic team organizations in place in good time.
Your help in this will be very much appreciated
From the beginning of May, every Friday will be a teams duplicate, instead of the previous 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.
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.
Please click on the heading to open the document.
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.
