The Royal British Legion INDIVIDUAL Trophy Competition - Monday 25th January - played via BBO
Please follow the steps below in order to participate. These are not onerous but are necessary for our director to run our first BBO based individual competition.
As background, we need to run this competition with all of our tables fully occupied, that is to have a multiple of 4 players participating, (just as in our current pairs BBO sessions).
Hence we need you to follow the requests below and do so no later than the 22nd of January.
Arrange a notional “partnership” with another ABC member
Both players will then need to send me a note of both of your names and both your BBO names please, (email@example.com) – this ensures we have a multiple of 2 players and know who they are,
When it comes to the “on the night” registering for the event, please register in good time, no later than 18:45 and both of you will need to register independently, as there is no actual partnership of course, (the normal BBO $3 fee applies).
We will also need a “host” pair to help out, (in case we have an odd number of pairs), please let me know both your names if you are able to offer this and thank you.
If, “on the night”, you or your notional “partner” do not register in time, by 18:45, unfortunately it is likely neither of you will be able to participate.
All the boards will be played using the Ashby Bridge Club “Basic Bidding System”.
You can familiarise yourself with these simple 1 page convention details as follows -
From our club home page, click on the “Competitions” tab on the left hand side, this will bring up a new set of tabs, now click on the “Basic Bidding System for Individual Events/Scratch Pairs”, this will list the conventions etc you may use.
