Percentage display at the Bridgemate
Percentage display at the Bridgemate

At a recent committee meeting, the various Bridgemate options were reviewed and discussed, in particular the percentage display, the suppression of which seemed to be unpopular with some members.

It has been decided to reinstate the percentage display for a short trial period, so the Bridgemate will once again display the familiar message NS: 25%   EW: 75% (or whatever) after each board has been scored.

The scorer at the table (typically North) should of course allow everyone at the table a chance to see these figures (or announce them clearly) before continuing with the next board or round.

This trail period will last for up to four weeks (depending on initial feedback), starting with Thursday's Pairs event on 16th August.

Other Bridgemate options, in particular the suppression of the traveller display to discourage time-consuming "post mortems" at the table, will remain unchanged. Any queries or concerns, just ask.
