Updated Bridge Rules 2017

Board Orientation: The board should be left in the centre of the table. This rule is not new. Miss-boarding is quite common and without any doubt the cause of these miss boardings can be traced back to the board having been moved from the centre of the table. The only thing new is that the board has to be oriented correctly. If there is no room for the board in the centre of the table, it can be moved with the agreement of all four players to the side of the table but it must contain it's correct orientation.

                                    MRBC Archive

As we continue to celebrate 30 years in Broomfield, the Council has decided that a MRBC Archive should be established, where items that document the history and activities of our club could be stored and preserved.

So, if you have photos, newspaper cuttings, posters, items relating to Congress, or material generated in the course of setting up our club, anything that is precious to you that relates to MRBC, we would give such items a good safe home!

We have purchased a new fireproof cabinet which will be located in the office. Cognisant of the enduring value of personal memorabilia we undertake to document and record the items donated, making this material accessible to current members or future researchers perhaps. So please get de-cluttering!
