Christmas Party 2013
Christmas Party 2013

We had a select turnout of 28 people for our Christmas Party this year. Tony managed to get us in order and issued instructions to get us playing the first round. As the evening progressed, the hand distribution became wilder and wilder. I had a hand with CKQJ1098xxxxx DAx. The bidding progressed with my partner bidding Spades and the opposition bidding Hearts. I competed with Clubs but eventually the opposition bid 6H and partner bid 6S which was promptly doubled. Maybe I should have bid 7C but being vulnerable, I desisted. We went for -800. 7C was a laydown partner having AC and KD. Glad we were not playing Teams !!

After the meal we played a few more hands followed by the prizes for the highest scores. We then had the raffle with many people declining a second prize so this went on for a while. I think we all had a great time and enjoyed the event. Our thanks to Rachel Pantling and Tony Marshall for a great evening.

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'.

 

Players Available
Bob Warrender 2nd & 5th Thursdays
Tony Manickam 2nd & 5th Thursdays
Mike Toft 1st Thursday
