OPEN INVITATION

 

OPEN INVITATION

 

Visitors are always welcome to play at any of our open tournaments and the usual fee is £5.  However, from now until our AGM in April, visitors will simply pay the same £3 table money as members.

If you would like to become a member there is presently also a reduced joining fee since we are now in the last quarter of our membership year. SBU membership is a further £8.

SUPPORTED TOURNAMENT FOR LEARNERS

SUPPORTED TOURNAMENT FOR LEARNERS

In addition to our popular Sunday afternoon - Simple Systems tournament where all players are welcome, we will also be operating a separate supported play and learn table (or two ) alongside the Sunday tournament for people who do not feel ready to join the tournament yet ( perhaps as they are lacking a wee bit of confidence).  

So if you want to play on Sundays we will have the main tournament as well as the teaching table(s) too.  So, whatever your level of play, come and join in one of our Sunday tournaments.  Don't forget that from now until the AGM all table money is £3 for visitors (instead of the visitors rate of £5).

Standby volunteers required

The standby system is operated so that when your regular partner is unavailable you can still play with the standby on any particular evening that the system is in operation.  Please consider volunteering for our weekly Wednesday, Friday and Sunday tournaments. It is only by members supporting the standby system that this will continue.  Many thanks to those who have already committed to a date on the rota.  

 

Committee meeting - Saturday 3rd March 2018

The next committee meeting will take place on Saturday 3rd March 2018.  

If you feel that there are any issues that should be brought to the attention of the committee please advise The Club Secretary by email to billdurning50@gmail.com

The Sunday afternoon tournament (above) operates a standby system.  Please arrive around 15 minutes prior to tournament time of 1pm to register. Once registered, please fill the tables from low numbers upwards and help yourselves to tea or coffee. 

It is a very friendly and supportive environment so don't be daunted by the thought of "playing in a tournament", just come along and join in.  Although we aim to finish at 4.30pm, there are rare occasions beyond our control where it is not possible to finish at that time so please consider this when making any arrangements for after the event and allow a little leeway.

Remember that individuals without a playing partner can attend as a standby will always be present and a game is, therefore, guaranteed.
