The new bridge year is upon us and this raises the matter of the 2020/2021 membership fee and CBAI affiliation fees.
The CBAI have instructed that all clubs must pay €10 affiliation fee per member, to be paid by 30th Nov., otherwise a charge of €12.50 per member will be imposed. You cannot play in a virtual club on Bridge Base Online unless this CBAI fee is paid.
Ashbourne Committee has decided that the normal club membership fee will not apply for the 2020/2021 season. The club will cover the €1 fee payable to the North Eastern Region for each club member that affiliates.
The CBAI affiliation fee must be paid by all players wishing to play in Ashbourne's virtual games,
There are 2 ways in which you can pay the €10 fee.
Firstly, you can pay the €10 directly into the club’s Bank Account in Ashbourne by electronic transfer (NB you must put your name as a reference), and use the following details:
IBAN: IE83 AIBK 9323 9600 4051 89
BIC CODE: AIBKIE2D
You must also send an email to the club email address firstname.lastname@example.org informing the club that you have made the electronic transfer.
Alternatively, members of the Committee will be in attendance in the Ashbourne/Donaghmore GAA club, (currently open, but this could change), on Tuesday the 13th October & Tuesday the 20th October for one hour from 11.00 am to 12:00 and you can bring an envelope with your name and contact number on the front and €10 in it.
The 30th Oct. is our cut-off date for paying this affiliation fee.
You will no longer be able to play in the virtual club competitions if the fee is not paid by this date.
Please note, the club is open to NEW players, who, if they pay the €10 affiliation fee to the club, can play in the weekly virtual competition. However they do not become full members of the club.
We ask everyone to understand that these are very unusual times and your committee may need to introduce further changes over time.
