UPDATE: Regional Pairs

Regional Pairs

Dear Club Secretaries,
                                      as you know we were due to hold our Regional Pairs next Sunday, 5th December, in the ABCD Bridge Centre, Drogheda, however, with all the warning signs coming from the Health experts at present and having consulted today with the Regional Committee, we are postponing the event until early in the new year (CBAI have given permission this year to hold the Regional Pairs at a later date than normal.)
We do feel that it will be so much better to hold the event 'Live' given that it is a qualifiying event for the National Pairs Championships.
Kind regards,

2021-2022 Club Membership Renewal

As the formal Bridge Season started on the 1st September 2021, Membership Fees are now required.

The Ashbourne Bridge Club Committee has decided that the total membership fee for 2021-2022 will be reduced to €20 for this season. This fee includes a €10 affiliation fee due to the CBAI and a €1 affiliation fee due to the North Eastern Region. The CBAI €10 affiliation fee is only available to members who pay before 30th Nov, otherwise a charge of €12.50 per member will be required.

There are 3 ways in which you can pay the €20 fee.

Firstly, members of the Committee will be in attendance in the Ashbourne/Donaghmore GAA club on Tuesday the 2nd Nov, for one hour from 11.00 am to 12:00 and you can bring an envelope with €20 in it to the GAA club on that date. Please put your name and contact number on the front of the envelope.

If you are attending the GAA club on the 2nd Nov, please bring your Covid 19 certificate or proof of recovery from Covid 19 (within the last 6 months) with you. This will enable a member of Committee to update the club’s Covid 19 Vaccination Register and will allow you to play in the Live Games from the 9th Nov.

Secondly, you can pay the €20 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


Thirdly, you can pay the €20 to the Club Treasurer on any club night from the 9th to the 23rd November. Thereafter the fee will be €22.50.

If you chose options 2 or 3 above, you will be required to show your Covid 19 certificate or proof of recovery from Covid 19 (within the last 6 months) on your first night attending the club for live Bridge.

Many thanks

The Committee
