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
Fearghal O’Boyle has produced a summary of the more significant changes to the Laws and has kindly allowed us to publish it in full on our website for the use of all our members. Click here for details of the major changes.

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.
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.
