New Laws

The World Bridge Federation (WBF) has introduced the latest revision of the Laws of Duplicate Bridge. The SBU has decided these should be applied in SBU events from 1 September 2017. To view the new Laws, click on New Laws in the Menu. Here you can also find a side-by-side comparison of the 2007 and 2017 Laws, with changes highlighted.

Some useful material regarding the new Laws can also be found by following this link to the EBU website.

Special events / seminars

The West District Committee is exploring the idea of holding special events for the benefit of members. These could take the shape of seminars or masterclasses, possibly with a well-known expert or bridge personality.

At this stage we are inviting players to submit suggestions or ideas. If you have a proposal for such an event please email the Secretary: hk@horst.plus.com.
