Thank you

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 for bridge sessions and classes. 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
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.
