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.

SATURDAY OPEN ON-LINE PAIRS - 10th April 2021
EVENT PARTICULARS

AFTER MUCH CONSIDERATION WE HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL THIS EVENT DUE TO THE LACK OF ENTRIES 

These events will usually be a standard BBO Pairs event playing between 20 and 24 boards with 2 board rounds (although this might change depending on the number of entries).  

For our main County events – 8 minutes per board - Restricted to Level 4 Conventions
The event will cost  3 BBOper person and will qualify for Masterpoints and NGS as normal.

In order for you to play in one of our events we need your BBO username in advance. If this is the first time you have played in one of our on-line events please submit your entry information via our website by 10.00 am on the day of the event. No late entries can be accepted.   

Although it isn't necessary, it would help us to gauge numbers if all participants could register their interest to play via our website (even if they have played in one of our events before).  If we don't receive enough entries via our website to make the event enjoyable we may have to take the decision to cancel it.

The tournament name to search for on BBO for all these events will be "Berks and Bucks".   

On the day of the event, you can log in to register with your partner from 12.30 p.m.  We suggest (especially the first time you play in one of our events) that you register by 2 p.m.at the latest, so any registering probems can be ironed out well before the event starts. 

To avoid delays in the tournament start time, we ask all players to be logged into BBO and registered for the events by 2.20 p.m. on the day of the event. 

Please click on the  "How to Play on BBO Guide" on our homepage if this is your first time and you are unsure how to register for events.
