Use of Mobile Phones and Tablets

Slowly and surely some of us are lurching into the 21st Century, whilst others have been there since 1999. Whether we like it or not mobile technology and social mediocracy(!) have made a massive difference to our lives. However there are some occasions when we should resist the temptations that these media induce. And one of these is whilst playing bridge.

For various reasons (imminent grandchildren is one which springs to mind) you might need to keep your phone on you, but put it on vibrate so that it won’t disturb others in the room (be careful where you position it though – or you could be in for an unexpected surprise!). But please don’t answer it if it vibrates. The caller will leave a message, and if it’s really important you could deal with it out of the playing room, at the end of the round.

Text messages and emails are also (all too) frequently received. They’re not so important that they must be viewed straightaway. Again, if you are sitting out, or if there is a gap at the end of a round, then you could leave the room, check your device, and deal with anything which you consider important enough.

So there is absolutely no excuse for viewing your mobile device at the table, even when you have completed play and you are waiting to move. Indeed the EBU’s White Book, Section 2.8.4, even suggests the penalties which should be imposed if someone is seen to use them. So why not chat to your opponents  – it’s (usually) less rude!

The Competitions Section

lists the John Brears Trophy and all the Annual Masterpoint Competitions. All of these are updated automatically as the results come in.

CHRISTMAS PARTY 2018
CHRISTMAS PARTY 2018

The benchmark from previous years has always been high, but these fabulous ladies have excelled yet again. A very enjoyable evening was had by all at this year's Christmas Party. I'm sure it is recognised how much effort goes into running such an occasion and is very much appreciated, take a bow Pam Readhead and her helpers (L-R Wanda, Louise, Rita, Pam, Joan and Jen).

TUESDAY AFTERNOONS - BACK TO THE FUTURE
TUESDAY AFTERNOONS - BACK TO THE FUTURE

Tuesday Afternoon start time. It seems not everyone could make the earlier start so it's been decided that it is in everyone's best interest to revert back to the 'normal' time of 1:30 pm. Nothing ventured nothing gained ...

DIMMIE FLEMING AWARD
DIMMIE FLEMING AWARD

Recognition for the many years of sterling County administrative work, the EBU has bestowed Glynn Elwick with the prestigious Dimmie Fleming Award. This I believe is only the fourth time a Lincolnshire member has been given this accolade since it's inception in 1985 (others being Roy Hughes 2008, Mrs Drene Brown 2011, Mrs Elaine Proctor 2012). Many congratulations and wholly deserved.

CHALLENGE MATCH
CHALLENGE MATCH

SBC escapee and Charlie Chaplin look-a-like Dave Trinder has thrown down the gauntlet (on behalf of his new bridge club in Scarborough) to a challenge match. Town pride, club honour and perhaps even a trophy is at stake – the aim is to have a competitive teams event involving sixteen of each clubs better players in what is hoped to be an annual fixture.

The inaugural match is to take place in Scarborough in the spring of 2019. A coach is to be organised for members who fancy partaking or those that would just like to kibitz / walk along the prom / play the penny arcade slots or just go skinny dipping. A chippy tea is thought to be the best way to close what should be a grand day out.

See the club notice board for further details and for voting on preferred dates.
