As a courtesy to all the players at the Bridge Club -
PLEASE try to be at the Club 15 minutes before play is due to start and seated 5 minutes before the start of play. The Directors cannot set up the movement & distribute the Bridgemates until they know how many players there are.
Mobile phones should be switched off during play with the exception of anyone who is expecting an important call and has notified the Director.
• When you’re on opening lead, your first priority after the auction is to make the opening lead. This should be done before entering the contract into the Bridgemate or writing on your personal scorer.
• The same applies to dummy – after the opening lead is faced, spread your hand before doing anything else.
