Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before start time

The TDs request that players should make every effort to arrive at the Club at least 10 minutes before the advertised start time. 

As BridgeMates are in use for nearly all sessions it is time consuming and tiresome to reset everything to ensure a prompt start if players are arriving late. This is particularly so on busy nights such as Monday and Thursday when adequate time should be allowed by players for car parking.

Complaints are received about late evening finishes and incomplete hence unfair movements which a prompt start would somewhat alleviate.

The club's mobile telephone number 07749 410 362 is always switched on about half an hour before play is due to start if you want to notify late arrival.

Players who arrive after the movement has been set up without prior notification in most cases will not get a game!!!

Based at: THE SUTTON COLDFIELD RUGBY CLUB.

Self Help Group

On Monday nights, commencing June 23rd, a self help group will take place in the training room from 7 p.m. The group will play some boards then discuss them. These sessions will not have a TD and will not be masterpointed. If there are more than 14 tables in the main session, members of the group may join the main session or play among themselves but discussion will not be possible. For details and to register interest contact Andrew Huskinson on 077901-12879 or just turn up. Partners not necessary.

Convention Cards

The Duplicate Sub-Committee requests that all regular partnerships should have a fully completed convention card especially if not playing an ACOL based system. This particularly includes five card major or short/better minor based variants used as a partnership agreement opening bid. An opening one level bid in a minor which can be made on 0,1 or 2 cards in the suit must now be announced under new EBU regulations.
