Welcome to Kelvin Malone BC
Interclub Heat A @ KMBC on Monday 15th January

Normally we would have uploaded the results and the hands tonight but Ian Hamilton (Interclub Organiser) asked us not to as the same hands were due to be played in other clubs tonight (Tuesday); some of these clubs asked Ian for permission to play the hands next Tuesday night as they were either cancelling their sessions or expecting a reduced turnout.

We will therefore upload the results and hands next Tuesday night (23rd).  Apologies for the inconvenience.

NEW BRIDGE MAGAZINE - FREE !!

As you will probably know, Bridge Magazine has stopped publishing for the foreseeable future. Ron Tacchi and I have decided to start a new venture by launching A New Bridge Magazine.

This is a free magazine!!!

Firstly if you have already registered with A New Bridge Magazine through the word of mouth campaign then we are sorry for troubling you.

If you visit www.newbridgemag.com you can see the new magazine. You can also register to ensure you are notified each time a magazine is published.

If you like the magazine then not only please register but also tell anyone and everyone you know who plays bridge that there is a new free bridge magazine available.

This is our first edition and will be improved in terms of both content and production over the coming months.

 

Here's hoping you will become a regular reader,

 

Mark Horton, Editor

The Heat is On!
The Heat is On!

The heating time clocks have now been set and the boiler will come on automatically on the relevant days from 0920 to 1200 in the morning and 1840 to 2210 in the evening and 1310 to 1600 on Wednesday and Friday. The thermostatic radiator valves should be left on a setting of 3 which will enable us to check if they are all working correctly. Changing these to a higher setting will NOT heat the room any quicker but will result in over-heating the room so please leave them alone.  If you think a valve is not working properly please advise the director who will contact one of the Building sub-committee.

The advance facility on both time clocks will allow the user to advance the system to ‘ON’ when currently ‘OFF’ or switch the system ‘OFF’ when currently ‘ON’.

Club Rule - Seating Positions at the Table

Members and Visitors are reminded of the following rule:

At ALL Club sessions, prior to the playing of the first board, the tossing of a coin or drawing of lots will determine the NS & EW seating positions if one pair requests it.  Tournament Directors, players who for health reasons prefer to sit or move and those who can’t use the electronic scorers are exempt from this rule and get their choice.

Barrier Details and Instructions Update – Sainsbury’s Gate Entrance

The Harbour Estate gate at Sainsbury’s (Tillysburn) is now controlled by automatic entrance and exit barriers from approximately 21.00 to 06.00 (Monday to Saturday) and all day Sunday.  If you come to the barrier and it is down drive up to the barrier, stop beside the pedestal, and present your Belfast Harbour plastic pass to the panel with a key on it and the barrier will then magically rise!  If you haven't got a pass press the intercom button and wait for a reply; state that you are coming from or going to Kelvin Malone Bridge Centre and the barrier will then magically rise!

In the event of a problem ring the Belfast Harbour Police on 028 9055 3000 and they will sort it out.
