Well done to Alan Jarvis and Stuart Davies for retaining the trophy. Carrie Babington and Lisa Taylor were the highest placed Huddersfield pair.
Please note that we are proposing an amendment to the constitution to update the Complaints Procedure. Details are on the Club noticeboard where the Committee meeting notices are usually put. Please can members read and review these so that we can vote on them at the AGM.
If you have any queries please contact any Committee member.
The Club’s AGM is to be held on 6th June at 7.00 p.m. followed by Social Bridge. All members are welcome.
The club will be holding a heat of this YCBA charity simultaneous pairs events on Thursday 13th June starting at 7:00 p.m. There will be no other coaching or Gentle Duplicate sessions that evening. For those of you have not done so before this event is a good opportunity to play in a larger event, scored across the county.
Congratulations to Rosie and Ian Hinchliff for winning the Newcomers Pairs trophy.
Quite a few of you have not signed up for the new season.
A fresh list will be put up tonight ( April 29th).
If you wish to be considered for selection, and have not yet signed up, please do so, to save me the bother of having to chase you up individually.
It would also help me, if you do not wish to play again this year, for you to contact me direct, personally or by phone or e-mail to tell me of your decision, so that I don't waste your time or mine in trying to contact you.
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.
