Old ú10 Notes

A gentle reminder!  Please check that you do not use old £1 coins at the club and, from 1st March, old £10 notes will no longer be legal tender. In order to give Adrienne time to bank any table money best not to use old £10 notes at the club after February 21st.

How can you help?

It would be much appreciated if everyone could help in small ways at the start (getting scorecards etc out) and end of sessions (loading the dishwasher), don't leave the director to do everything!

If you would like to try your hand at scoring or directing please contact David Drinkwater or Michael Metcalf, more volunteers for these duties are always needed.

Polite Notice.

A number of members sadly have health issues effecting  their immune systems.  Members are politely asked to refrain from playing at the club when suffering from infections. Super clean hands too at all times please to prevent any infection passing via the cards.

Please Arrive 15 minutes before play

At all club sessions please arrive at least 15 minutes before play is due to start, 6:45 for 7 p.m. start, 7 for 7:15 start, 1:15 for 1:30 start. If you are running late please ring the club, 01785 246611, to let the scorer know you are on your way so that they can factor you in when setting up the movement and scoring systems.

Tuesday Standbys

A host system runs on Tuesday evenings whereby if you arrive at the club without a partner not later than 7 p.m. then the "stand by" for that evening will be called in to play with you.

The parties were:

Thursday 14th December Robin's lesson group got the SBC Christmas party season started. Five tables with a fun movement of 18 hands specially prepared by Robin on topics covered in the recent lessons. Pupils came away with commentaries on the hands.  A very big thank you to Robin for a great deal of hard work.  
Friday 15th December Friday night players party was a fun teams event organised by David. It all worked so well, after a message going adrift Phil and Helena saved the day to allow David's planned table movement to work perfectly! Due to the icy conditions sadly the last few boards had to be abandoned so that players could get home safely.
Tuesday 19th December The main event to which all were invited. 43 attended and so David ran a pivot teams 10 tables and that allowed both Janet and John Andrews to sit in on some of the hands.
Prizes were awarded by Michael for the winning team and the team coming second, on a point-a-boards scoring (as for the Friday party). Prizes for Benji & Digger and other miscellaneous.  Janet and her team provided a very good meal, enjoyed by all.
Wednesday 20th December The final SBC Christmas party, the Wednesday afternoon player's self catering party. Some very good food enjoyed by the 30 players, Mary Berry had had quite an influence.  A normal movement for this party but with a longer interval than usual to enjoy the spread along with a glass of wine.  Pat took pictures that will be added to the website shortly.
