AGM 2018 - 6th Sept at 6.30pm
2018 AGM

The Club AGM will be held on Thursday 6th September 2018.

It would help if you are seated before 6.30pm so that the meeting can begin on time. This will allow us to get in a full session of Bridge after the meeting.Your help in this would be most appreciated.

Now is the time to get your suggestions and comments in to the committee. You can email your thoughts to the Chairman at the address above. The present Committee have been in place for over 2 seasons, so new volunteers would be most welcome.

New Laws of Duplicate Bridge 2017

The following is an extract from the EBU Website:

The big change that will affect players is the introduction of the new concept in Law 23 of a comparable call:

A call that replaces a withdrawn call is a comparable call, if it:

1. has the same or similar meaning as that attributable to the withdrawn call, or

2. defines a subset of the possible meanings attributable to the withdrawn call, or

3. has the same purpose (e.g. an asking bid or a relay) as that attributable to the

withdrawn call.

Members have agreed with the recommendation by the Committee that from the 4th June all Club sessions will start at 7.00pm. Hopefully this will alleviate the problem of late finishes.

There has been some concern that players who volunteer to play as a host may sometimes have their NGS Grading affected by playing with a new partner.

Please click here to read a note from the Chief Tournament Director of the EBU who explains this subject in a little more detail.  NGS.pdf

♠   ♣ 

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: 

NGS Guide


or for an overview see here: NGS-Docs


If you just want to check your own grade or someone else's grade go here:

NGS Grades


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.

Thank you
