As you may (or may not) know the EBU NGS scheme went live on 1st March 2012. ( see here: NGS Scheme )
This scheme aims to provide members with an overview of a players current playing ability rather than the Master Point grade achieved over a players playing career.
For a full explanation of the scheme see here:
or for an overview see here: NGS-Docs
If you just want to check your own grade or someone else's grade go here:
In the Search box enter a Surname followed by a comma then an Initial or First name eg Smith,A
Most of the displayed fields are self-explanatory but as to the meaning of the grades, you will have to read one of the documents above for an explanation.
Hopefully, this short article will have whetted your appetite to go to the EBU website to check out this new Grading System.
If you are directing, it would be appreciated if you could :
1) arrive by 6.50 and organise dealing of boards
2) at the end of the session, remove all score slips (if used) and put boards in the box in numerical order. Also ensure Name Slips have been filled in (if used) and placed with the score slips.
‘If you are without a partner on a Thursday, please contact Bob Warrender 01963-440070 who may be able suggest someone who is also looking for a partner.
