The Zenon Committee is asking all players to strictly abide by the code of conduct, to play at a reasonable speed and turn off phones. The timer for playing the hands will be set to give 4-minute warning after which no new boards can be played if they have not already been started. Those receiving phone calls will be penalised by 2 Euros. Attention should also be paid to correctly entering the score in the bridge mate and to have this verified by one of the opponents. Care should be taken to return cards to the right position on the board and to verify that one receives 13 cards and returns the same 13 cards to the board at the end of play.
Always check the website to check the session is running.
Usual times are Monday 1800 and Tuesday 14.15
It is with regret we announce the resignation of our Treasurer, Tina Clarke-Walker. Tina asked that the following statement be posted on the notice board:
“This is a very important period for our Club and my prolonged absence abroad with no definite date for return to Cyprus will add an unnecessary layer of communication and could frustrate the decision-making process involved in changing the constitution. It is therefore with regret that I hereby resign as a member of the Committee with immediate effect.
If in the future, if there is an opportunity for me to play an active role in the Club I shall be very pleased to do that.”
