The Heat is OFF!

Now that the warm weather is upon us we have dispensed with the programmed operating periods for both the upstairs and downstairs heating.

The Upstairs Heating Control is on the wall near the front door.  (Note: Upstairs heating only works if Downstairs heating is on so you will also need to bring the downstairs heating on even if the downstairs room is unoccupied!)

Press the “boost” button once which will turn on the heating for one hour.  For further times if needed press the boost button again later. 

The Downstairs Heating Control is to the left of the boiler in the office

Press the “boost” button once for one hour or twice for two hours.  For further times if needed press the boost button again later.

Thank you

Helm Cup - Sunday 4th June

The committee is looking for entries from pairs to take part in this annual NIBU Inter Club Teams competition; we are the current holders of the the Helm Cup.

The Club requires two Intermediate pairs and two Senior pairs for each team. Each grade plays teams of the same grade from other Bridge Clubs throughout Northern Ireland. KMBC has entered two teams in recent years.  The Intermediate pairs can be made up of either two As, two Bs or an A and a B.

The competition is played over two sessions with a meal break in between.

KMBC will be subsidising the entry fee. If you wish to take part please send your entry to: David Leeman – Phone – 07780623671 Email – david.r.leeman@ntlworld.com or put your name on the entry sheet on the Club’s notice board in the foyer by Saturday 13th May.

Summer Duplicate Bridge - No Partner Required

Over the summer months KELVIN MALONE BRIDGE CENTRE will be offering two separate Duplicate Sessions. One session will be for Beginners and Novices and the other session will be for All Levels.  These will take place on THURSDAYS  from  18th  MAY 2016 starting at 7:20pm (sharp).

The Beginners and Novices session is an ideal opportunity for those people who want to get some experience of playing Duplicate bridge in a Club. 

The Open ‘All Levels’ session offers an opportunity to more experienced players whose local Club may be closed during the summer or whose partner may be off on holiday to participate in a regular Duplicate Bridge Competition.

Computer generated pre-dealt boards and electronic scoring by tablet gives interesting hands and immediate scoring.

Come along and give KELVIN MALONE a try. Bring your partner or come alone and a partner will be provided.

TABLE MONEY: £3 for Visitors and £2 for Members.  CASH PRIZES ON  THE NIGHT.  No Partner Required.

Your Friendly Tournament Directors: SAM, NORMA, GERRY, IRIS, RON, DAVID, SEAMUS, DYMPHNA & DEREK

Further Enquiries: telephone Sam:  (H) 028 9079 5706 - (M) 077 6158 3438

We have now replaced the paper towel dispensers in the toilets with a different type. If anyone would like to have one of the old ones please let David Leeman know by email ( david.r.leeman@ntlworld.com ) before we wash our hands of them!  First come, first served.

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.
