TUDOR BRIDGE CLUB
MEMBERSHIP NEWSLETTER APRIL 2017
As of the AGM I have taken on the role of Chairman of our bridge club and I look forward to the opportunities for interaction and the challenges that this role presents. I would also like to welcome Carlton Jones and Alan Chidgey to the Committee.
Loretta Ogden Froud
Following the death of David Clarke his Funeral will be held on Tuesday 2 nd May, 12 noon at the Woodlands Cemetery.
Your committee would like to remind you and inform you of the following:-
The yellow discourtesy cards are kept at the rear of the front section of the bidding box, behind the stop and alert cards. They should not get in your way when bidding. Please do not remove them from the boxes as they have a purpose.
As discussed at the AGM, starting from Tuesday 2 nd May we are going to start all games at 7.00 pm. Please make every effort to arrive by this time as once the game has started the ability to slot you in will be at the director’s discretion.
All directors have been asked to use the clock at every session. This is to move the game on at a reasonable pace so that it is enjoyable for all. It also ensures that the movement is completed in the allotted time.
When the clock rings and “No new boards please” is announced you should not continue unless bidding has started. Removing one or more hands from the board does not mean you have started the board. You must be bidding.
As we all must be out of the building by 10.30 pm, the committee has decided that no new rounds should be started after 10.00 pm. This will give time to finish the round and clear away.
NEW DIRECTORS WANTED
Would anyone like to train as a director ? We are short of the required number needed for the club to work smoothly. It would be one way that you could give something back to your club. If you are interested please speak to one of the existing directors or a committee member.
