PAYMENTS BY CHEQUE

We are phasing out the acceptance of cheques as payment of table money at B&BCBA events. At county events, table money will be cash only - cheques will not be accepted.  Cheques will continue to be accepted at the Green Point events.

B&BCBA Group Email Facility

The county has set up a new e-group facility that ensures you receive occasional reminders of events and county information via email. You will receive this information automatically if your email is registered in “My Details” within your EBU Members’ area. You can change your email address or unsubscribe by following the simple instructions at the bottom of an email. If you have not registered your email with the EBU but would still like to be added to the B&BCBA list.     

Please email the B&BCBA

PLASTIC WASTE

B&BCBA are keen to reduce the amount of plastic waste which result from the catering at events held at Windsor.   Firstly, we will phase out the use of plastic spoons and change to wooden stirrers.    Secondly, whilst it is not practical for B&BCBA to totally change to using china or other re-useable cups, players are encouraged to bring their own cups if they wish to.

NEW ON-LINE COUNTY EVENTS FOR 2020-2021

REGISTERING REQUIREMENTS FOR B&BCBA ON-LINE TOURNAMENTS 

We are keen to make our events as enjoyable as possible and part of this is having a sufficient number of players for each event.  With the exception of NGS/Jack High/B&BCBA member qualifiation events if you have played in one of our on-line events before you are welcome to just turn up on the day and play on BBO. However, we would ask where possible that you register your entry via our website before the each event. If we have insufficient entries via our website we may take the decision to cancel the event. To this end we have extended the entry dead-line to 10.00 am on the morning of all our Bridge Base On-line events.  .  

For further information and entry forms, please click on the event you wish to play in.

Congratulations to Mary's Berries - Gary Jennison (captain), Alan McBride, Elena McBride and Sally Tilleray - on winning the Graduate League for the second year running, so retaining the Margaret Hatch trophy.

Mary's Berries were taught by Mary Sharp (hence the team name) and Ruff and Ready by Rob Wilkinson.
