Four Special Events for October

Please come along with your partner or team and play in the following events in October:

We kick off with an EBU Simultaneous Pairs on Monday 6th October where you can win mega local points some being converted to BLUE POINTS (3 BLUE POINTS = i GREEN POINT , 600 GREEN POINTS plus some  local points = GRAND MASTER) for finishing in the top third in the country. Entry fee is £5.00 per player to include standard SCBC table money.

This is closely folowed by our third Swss Pairs event a week later on Monday 13th October (local points per match won plus overall ranking points). It really helps the organisers if you sign up on the noticeboard if you are intending to play.

After recovering from of course partner's sub-optimal views on the past two Monday's you can play in the first of the President's Cup sessions on Thursday 16th October.  Please note that the committee have funded this as a BLUE-POINTED EVENT at no extra cost to players over and above standard SCBC table money. Again there is a list on the noticeboard and the committee would really like some more confirmed entries. 

You can then then play with teammates in the Edgar Foster Teams competition on Wednesday 29th October.


 

 

 

 

 

Revill Edwards Cup - Fri. 12th Sept.

Congratulations to Anja Townrow and Joe Fagan who were the highest placed members in the Revill Edwards Cup for Duplicate Pairs and so were awarded the trophy after the event held at the Club on Friday 12th September. 

The full ranking list can be found on the results page. 


 

Swiss Pairs Mon. 1st Sept.
Swiss Pairs Mon. 1st Sept.

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!!!

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.
