Coming up on Thursday 30 January TEAMS evening
Coming up on Thursday 30 January  TEAMS evening

Thursday 30 January  is our next '5th Tues/Thurs' teams evening. If you've already arranged a team of four for the evening, that's fine. If not, we can join up pairs into teams on the night on a first come first served basis. 

All Bath BC members (and visitors as well) are welcome to play in this event – do come along and join us.


NOTE: Pairs not in a team will be paired up on the night, but the last such pair to turn up may not find partners and may therefore not be able to play. It is therefore recommended that pairs seeking partners should email Richard Samter (richardsamter@virginmedia.com) and try to get teamed up in advance. Pairs who have emailed in advance will be treated as having arrived first.

We'd like to wish our members ...
We'd like to wish our members ...
... a very happy new year,
 
and remind you that annual membership fees of £15 are now due.
 
You can pay
  • by direct electronic payment, as detailed in your renewal email (preferred)
  • by cheque  - payable to Bath Bridge Club, with your name on the back
  • in cash - in a clearly marked envelope.

Cash and cheques should be given either to Neil or to that evening's director.

 

Please renew your membership as soon as possible. Thanks!
If scoring's a headache, why not take a tablet?
If scoring's a headache, why not take a tablet?

If you've ever played bridge at Queen's Square, Box Pavilion or Chippenham BC (or Paignton, for that matter), you'll have seen BridgeTabs in action. The system uses tablets, rather than Bridgemate handsets, to enter the scores, providing a much larger and friendlier full-colour display that everyone can read.

In order to give all our members a chance to try tablet scoring – just in case we want to move in that direction some time in the future – we'll be using BridgeTabs at Bath BC for most of the sessions in the week beginning Monday 13th January*. Could be fun.

Apparently, BridgeTabs can also be used for the auction, replacing bidding boxes – the end of the line for insufficient bids? – and we might be able to try out that function as well. Could be even more fun ...

Our thanks in advance to Christine and Stuart for allowing us to use their software and hardware – and for all the hard work entailed in setting up and running the trial.

  *  There is a delay - the trial will be run asap, and the date will be announced HERE in good time.    

Congratulations to last week's winners ...
