PROGRAM CHANGES JUNE - SEPTEMBER 2015

NEW START TIME FOR ALL YEOVIL THURSDAY BRIDGE EVENINGS

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

The following changes to the programme will also be made for the remainder of the season:

3rd Thursday of the month from June to August : Simple bidding system competition with regular / frequent partnerships being discouraged and committee members inviting infrequent attenders to play with them.

2nd Thursday in August : An Individual event. This is now easily organised with use of bridgemates (providing MT present !)

4th Thursday in August : Teams with draw for teammates, but only possible if suitable numbers present, otherwise pairs event.

National Grading Scheme (NGS)

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.

PARTNER AVAILABILITY

There are occassions when you would like a game on a Thursday but you don't have a partner. There are others like you who have the same problem.

The committee decided that it might be a good idea to keep a list of people who may be willing to play listed on this website.

Submitting your name does not commit you to anything. You are free to say no if someone contacts you but it would be nice to have a list of potentially available players.

All contact details can be found on the current 'Dance Card'.

This list show the Players and their availabilty - so give someone a call and get a game. We look forward to seeing you.

 

Players Available
Bob Warrender 2nd & 5th Thursdays
   
Mike Toft 1st Thursday
David Steele 2nd Thursday
Mike Readman 2nd & 3rd Thursday
John Ball May be available any Thurs
