EBU Videos for TDs

New The EBU has created a series of videos featuring Gordon Rainsford to help club Tournament Directors deal with some of the more commonly occurring situations.

There are seven videos in the series: http://www.ebu.co.uk/laws-and-ethics/td-videos 

Introduction
The revoke
Opening lead out of turn
Unintended call
Insufficient bid
Call out of turn
Misinformation

Please remember that if one of these situations arises, you should, as a player, always call the director, and not try to sort this out yourself.

Mini Bridge for Children

Over 50 children aged between four and fifteen took part in a series of mini-bridge camps held at Pinner Bridge Club over the summer resulting in over 25 children reaching the necessary standard to receive EBED Junior Award Scheme certificates.

 

Bob Blackman, MP for Harrow East and Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Bridge, paid a visit on Monday 15th August and commented, “I was delighted to visit the mini-bridge summer camp to meet many of the participants and to play some hands with them. I strongly support the development of the game and the younger you start the more chance there is that you become a strong player. It was really good to meet the young players who had only been learning the game for a few days yet had started to become proficient as a result of the excellent teaching and coaching that they were receiving. Let us hope that we can see many more such summer camps and school development of Bridge so that more and more young people learn this mind sport.”

 

The sessions were sponsored by MCBA and run by a team of volunteers led by MCBA member Trupti Shah and included President Paul Wilson, Vice Chairman Harish Patel as well as Vanessa Clarke, Shirish Dodhia, Steven Lipman, Chandra Mehta, Theresa Mullane, Anjana Shah, Manjari Shah, Rajesh Shah, Titksha Shah. Our thanks go to them all for generously donating their time.
