Fast Track Bridge We have Lift-off!

Our Fast Track Bridge project is now underway. Four Clubs will work with us to deliver a weekend of bridge – for beginners, or rusty returners, followed by an initial series of 10 intensive lessons. Our aim is that at the end of this, our new recruits will be able to play in assisted / gentle / friendly duplicates hosted by our partner Clubs.
The Clubs involved are Weston, Street, Pawlett and a cluster of clubs including Castle Cary, Yeovil and Sherbourne. We plan to get the first weekend up and running in May.
If you know anyone who may be interested in learning bridge quickly – with the emphasis on quickly  - then please let us know - email ceri.pierce@gmx.com .

STRATIFICATION

In order to produce more winners and thereby encourage more players the committee has decided that from now on all Pairs events will be stratified using Master Point rankings.
A - open. B < Regional Master  C< Advanced Master

N.B. A pair of mixed rank must be assigned the category of the higher-ranked player. 

Stratified Events run like any other SCBA event – all participants are part of the same field, and may play against each other. A single result list is produced, but players who have a lower Master Point ranking, so meet certain stratification criteria, are highlighted on the result list so that they can be identified. Lower ranked pairs can therefore compare their scores with both the overall results, and also with the results of those with a comparable ranking. Those who do best amongst those in the lower stratifications are awarded additional Master Points.
