Welcome to Aces at the Wishing Well Bridge Club

Hi everyone,

In line with the Government advice on reopening society, the CBAI have finally received approval for a return to the table for bridge players.

Many of you have been playing online and although it has kept us all going, most of us miss the “Real Thing” of holding cards in your hands and interacting with your partner and opponents.  
Now that Covid restrictions have been relaxed, our club is now reopened with 2 games in the Wishing Well Lounge Bar, starting at 10.00am on Monday and Tuesday, for whoever wishes to play. The online games will still be available, starting at the usual time of 9.45am. (Monday on BBO and Tuesday on RealBridge)

CBAI requirements for a safe return to live bridge are:

·    

 All players must be fully vaccinated, presenting their Covid certificates for the first attendance. 

·     

All players must be members of each club they play in. 

    Numbers limited to less than 100 

·     

Face masks are mandatory while playing and when moving around.

·     

Regular sanitising of hands is advised between rounds 

·     

East/West should carry their bidding boxes from table to table so that each player handles only one bidding box throughout the competition.

     

Boards and score sheets to be handled only by Tournament Director or North.

      

Players should avoid congregating 

·      

Players should bring the correct amount of table money so that no change has to be given.


The back bar will be able to accommodate 10 tables, while still observing safe social distancing. Many of the small tables have been removed to accommodate this. Hand sanitising units are provided throughout the premises and there is a dedicated member of staff operating a cleaning and sanitising programme. As in pre-Covid days, teas/coffees will be served to the tables.

Please arrive early to ensure we are ready for a prompt start at 10.00am. Car parking will be available as before.


Only fully vaccinated club members will be allowed to play and membership renewal is due from the beginning of September The annual subscription is €25 (including CBAI affiliation fees) 

There will be a Beginners course (11.00am -1.00pm.) and a Refreshers course (1.30-3.30pm) both on Thursdays in the Newtownpark Parish Pastoral  Centre starting September 30th. For details and to register, please contact me. 

                                                                

I'm  looking forward to seeing as many of you as feel safe to return, on Monday or Tuesday. If not, see you online in the meantime. 

Best regards,
Grainne Dunne (086 2429117)

 

Message from CBAI re CHEATING on BBO

To all bridge players playing on the CBAI BBO Aces at the Wishing Well Bridge Club platform

The CBAI requires that all players on their BBO platform read the "Ethical play on BBO" document on the menu to the left of this message. Because of the unfortunate prevalence of cheating during online play, anyone who wishes to participate in our BBO games must read this document and follow the directions given. These directions include confirming to me that you have read the document and ensuring that your real name appears in your BBO profile. Instructions for how to add your real name on BBO are given in the "Add your real name - BBO profile" document in the menu. Whilst there is no suggestion whatever that anyone in our club is playing unethically it is an unfortunate fact that there are people who communicate with their partners during play or otherwise behave dishonestly when playing online. Please confirm to me, by text or email, when you have read this document. Regards, Grainne.
