IMPORTANT NOTICES

AMENDED CLUB OPENING

The Club will not be open for Bridge on 18th August due to lack of support for pairs.

The Committee are very sorry to announce the closure of the Club on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month but we are now down to only two and a half to three tables for Pairs and this does not make for a very enjoyable evening of bridge (bridge that is not the company of the people!) Hopefully by doing this we can encourage more members to turn out on the 2nd Thursday. (Make a note in your diary)

National Grading Scheme (NGS)

NGS Update - Nov 2015

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.

Directors

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
