News Flash - Car Passes for 25th to 30th July

Car passes have been prepared for SBC members wishing to play at the club on Friday 25th, Monday 28th, Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th July to enable vehicular access to the Showground during the Soul Survivor event. Please pick up your pass from the club prior to 25th July and have it showing on your windscreen when you arrive at the Showground during the event.

Forthcoming Events and Notices

Showground Events that are coming up.

Please pick up your car passes to bring your car into the Showground between 25th to 30th July during the Soul Survivor event. 

It is unlikely that there will be any play at the club during the Scope Festival 24th to 30th August.  At best players can get into the ground on foot from the car park over the road during the Scope Festival and then gain entry into the ground only if a pass has been obtained well in advance from the Festival organisers.  If you are very keen to play during this period you need to press the session directors to apply for passes a good 2 to 3 weeks beforehand!!!


Lessons will be restarting in September.

Lessons will be restarting in September, if you are interested in joining a class please contact Robin Adey 01785 661059 for intermediate level, Paul Laughlin 01889 881733 for improvers class or Ann Sleightholme 01785 822233 for the beginners class.


EBU change to Announcing and Alerting.

On August 1st 2013 changes were made to the EBU Announcing and Alerting rules.  There is a copy of the new rules on the club notice board.  There is also a notice on the board regarding permitted agreements (level 4 amplified) that  are now the SBC standard.

Jannersten Bridge Scorers

The Bridge-Scorer wireless scoring devices were installed in November 2013. The general opinion is that the devices are very straightforward for the players to use but the "on device" results can be difficult to read and may be slowing play. Some new devices are in the pipeline, BridgeTabs, to run alongside the present scorers, hopefully the new devices will be easier to read.  A request has been put in for North to make sure that every player at the table has the opportunity to see the results screen before moving on to the next board. Would you like to see rolling results on the club room screen during the session?


I really don’t want the ongoing scores on a screen  - very distracting, and likely to slow play.  Also the screen would not be visible to all.
The present scorers are hard to read  - why is the screen so ill- lit ?  They also are a real pain if a mistake is inadvertently made in entering something, as you can’t go back and put it right.  This would not matter if all players were perfect, and never made an error!

I do appreciate all the hard work put in by those who keep everything running for us. Regards Ann Stevenson
