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.

FRIENDLY PAIRS - FINCHAMPSTEAD PLATE - 21st Feb 2021
Friendly Events

These are county organised competitions aimed at new and less experienced bridge players and regular club players who want to play in a relaxed environment with others of similar experience.   We make special efforts to ensure that the events take place in a friendly atmosphere and so, no matter how inexperienced you feel you are, you can be sure of a warm welcome.  In support of this, the event is only open to pairs having mature NGS Ratings* which add to 20 or less on the date of registering on the County Website to play in the Tournament (or are considered to be of equivalent standard if a mature NGS Rating is not available).  ( * Jack=11, Queen=12, etc.)   Contact the Friendly Events Organiser Mike Ribbins (01189 473207) for more information.

Please Note:  Depending on entry numbers this event could be between 24 and 30 boards and may be in two sessions with a 20 minute break between them.  Our Director will advise at the beginning of the session.
