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.

Membership

MEMBERSHIP

Any member of the English Bridge Union who has not chosen another County Association as his or her county of prime allegiance is eligible to become a full member.   Membership of the EBU is automatic for members in good standing of a club affiliated to the Union.   Others may join by direct subscription – for details, click on “Useful Links” and from there to the EBU website.

EBU members may choose their county of prime allegiance, and may change this once in each year.   In the absence of a choice, members are allocated to the county of the first club that registered them as a club member.   Thus those who play regularly in clubs affiliated to Berks & Bucks will normally be members of this County Association, this will not be the case if their prime allegiance is elsewhere.

 

Full members do not pay a subscription, but anyone, whether member or guest, playing in an EBU affiliated club pays a “pay to play” charge each time they do so.   Affiliated clubs do pay an annual subscription.   The rates for the financial year commencing on 1st April 2020 are as follows.
