NEW BLUE BOOK

The EBU have announced the publication of a new Blue Book which becomes effective from 1st September.

There are changes to

  • Rules on announcements
  • Rules on strong opening bids
  • Rules on non-strong 2-bids and 3-bids (at Level 4)

It can be downloaded from the EBU website at :-   Blue Book

In addition there are also new Alerting and Announcing rules which can be found at :-

New Alerting and Announcing Bidding Rules

It is recommended that clubs should advise their members of the new rules and

club directors should make themselves familiar with the three main changes.

Change of E-Mail System
B&BCBA CHANGE OF EMAIL SYSTEM

 

B&BCBA is updating its membership emailing system and moving it from Mailchimp to Bridgewebs.  You will notice some cosmetic improvements to our mailings, but most of the changes are “behind the scenes”.

Our Privacy Notice has been updated to reflect the changes, so I will give you only a brief summary of the details here: 

  • We use the EBU's membership database as our master source (this has always been the case)
  • Our membership database contains only very limited information from the EBU's database. These are: Your EBU number, first and last names and your email address
  • Once a quarter, we refresh our membership database by downloading an extract of the latest version of the EBU master database.  We then use this information to update members' email addresses in our membership database
  • If your EBU record's email address field is blank  (as it is for more than 600 cases), you will not receive our emails
  • Access to our membership database is restricted to our membership secretary and our web master
  • This means that, should you change your email address, you will need to update your email address via your EBU membership record – we do not have (and cannot obtain) permission to update your EBU record for you.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON UNSUBSCRIBING FROM OUR MAILING LIST

 

There is one possible side effect of the move to Bridgewebs that you need to be aware of. 

Should you wish to unsubscribe from our mailings and do so by clicking “Unsubscribe” on one of our mailings, you will be unsubscribing from all emails sent by the service that Bridgewebs uses to distribute all its bulk emails – including your club's emails, if your club uses Bridgewebs to email its members. 

Should you wish to continue to receive emails from the EBU and your club, but not from us, then you should email our membership secretary, who will be able to arrange this for you.    Click here for Membership Secretary
