During the bidding, you can only ask an opponent for an explanation of a bid made by their side when it’s your turn to call. And you must ask the partner of the player who made the bid, not the player who made it.
Avoid asking questions about the bidding while it is continuing, unless you really need to know the answer in order to decide what your next call should be (because if you then pass, your partner might draw an inference about your strength, or your interest in the suit bid). Otherwise, wait until the auction is finished.
Members are encouraged to consider volunteering to act as "Hosts" on Club evenings. Arrangements can be made to ensure that your NGS grade is not affected. Members volunteering as hosts will not have to pay table money.

Due to inexplicable behaviour, Boards 25 and 26 were fouled last night and have had to be voided from the event. Somehow, probably in discussing hands after play, hands from Board 25 were relocated to Board 26 and hands from Board 26 were relocated to Board 25! This is extremely unacceptable behaviour. As a result, several percentages and positions have changed, resulting in huge advantages for some and huge disadvantages for others. Congratulations to Ann and Bryan, who have achieved the first 70% score of the year and thereby win a bottle of wine.
Warminster Bridge Club was founded in 1992 and aims to provide competitive but friendly duplicate bridge in pleasant surroundings. It is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and Wiltshire Contract Bridge Association.
The Club meets each Tuesday and Thursday evening in St John's Hall, commencing at 7:00pm. Players are requested to arrive by 6:50pm latest, especially if you are arriving to play without a partner. This will allow time to discuss your system.
Hands are duplimated and scoring is by Bridgemate and Computer so that results are available at the end of play. Master Points are awarded.
New Members and Visitors are always welcome. Hosts are provided for single players or contact the Club Secretary by clicking the link at the end of the next paragraph. Tuition is available on request.
