PETANQUE, WINE & CHEESE and BRIDGE EVENING

Sixteen of us enjoyed our pétanque session on 20 September, helped along by a glass or two of wine (Ron claimed to have had four, any advance on that?).  The women's team outnumbered the men's and we were in the lead at the start. However, despite claiming the other side's boules as our own, and some surreptitious rearrangement of boules, we have to report that the men won by a couple of points in the end. We had a combination of players with some experience and complete novices, but now we all have some idea of the rules and are all looking forward to another session. It will probably have to wait until the spring as it was certainly a bit chilly. We then adjourned inside for wine and cheese; it's questionable whether the bridge which followed was helped or hindered by the alcohol intake. Ron managed to concentrate throughout the evening and played some good bridge......

Many thanks to Margaret, who had the idea of us playing pétanque and organised the food. Thanks to everyone else who lent a hand or came along to have a go - everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Perhaps others will join us on the next session!

 

AUGUST SUMMER PARTY

A good time was had by all, we had twelve full tables, so many thanks to the catering team at The Tenterden Club and to everyone who helped organise the evening. The winners were Jenny Gentle and Terry Smith, and they have received their newly polished and engraved Richard Pengally trophy.

Main changes to EBU Laws 2017

Main changes to EBU Laws effective August 2017

1. When a claim is made, if all players are not in agreement, play is suspended and the Director must be called.

2. Information from a Penalty Card is "unauthorised information" and must not be used unfairly. If the non-offending side feel they have been damaged as a result, the Director may adjust the score.

3. When an insufficient bid or call out of turn is made, if the player makes a comparable bid, there is no rectification. The player's partner may then proceed to bid as normal. When an offending player’s call is withdrawn and it is not replaced by a comparable call, then if he becomes a defender declarer may, at the offender’s partner’s first turn to lead (which may be the opening lead) prohibit offender’s partner from leading any (one) suit which has not been specified in the legal auction by the offender. Such prohibition continues for as long as the offender’s partner retains the lead.

4. Players must be more explicit in their explanations. for example, Benji, Strong 2's or artificial minor suit openings. 

5. Strong bids must guarantee at least four cards in the bid suit and at least 16 points, or 12 points and five controls (2 for an Ace, 1 for a King).

6. Both players must agree their system so that opponents are aware of their style.

As always, please call the Director in any case of uncertainty.
