Play with the Experts at Bath BC as part of the EBU Summer Festival
Play with the Experts' is a pairs event with teams-style scoring. At the end of the evening, all N/S pairs 'score up' using the scorecard of a pair of experts who previously played the E/W hands. The E/W pairs will score up with the 'expert' N/S pairs. The pair who finish furthest ahead of the average score for those sitting in their direction will win. The same hands will be played at various venues around the country with prizes and Masterpoints based on the national results.
The event will be held at Bath BC on Monday 6th August - 7pm for a 7.15pm start. £7 for members, £8 for visitors, £4 for students.
We expect this to be a popular event so would ask that if you enter and subsequently cannot play you contact Richard Samter (richardsamter@virginmedia.com) at the earliest opportunity.
