EMBA are hoping to raise funds for maintaining the building in Spondon, they have no income at the moment and with funds running low, they are concerned about the fact that they may have to sell the building.
They have come up with a 50/50 monthly prize draw. Please look at the DCBA web site and possibly purchase 50/50 numbers.
For further information look on DCBA website or contact Jim Parker: firstname.lastname@example.org

Collection of Annual Subscription
After discussion, Belper Bridge Club Committee has decided to postpone the collection of subscriptions until such time when we could return to “normal” bridge and hold our AGM. The situation will be reviewed periodically.
The Committee has also decided that anyone who was a member of Belper Bridge Club in April 2020 will remain a member until an AGM can be held.

No slams bid and made but this one should have been.
my Mind is a total blank as to how we got to 6D , with me west playing them. Perhaps Natasha can help.
We lost the first trick to AH and there was a switch to Clubs which I won in hand with the Ace.
I can either play for the finesse or hope to drop QS. I decided to play for the drop, worried about a ruff somewhere as the hands were all unbalanced, and played a series of diamonds hoping for a spade discard, no luck so ended up losing 2 tricks. With the spades on show no one is going to drop a vital spade so in the cold light of day I should have taken the finesse.
what happened at your table?
How many squares can you see?
Quite a bit of interest in this one, mostly correct
28 February: Belper ONE V Bakewell Grey (Div 5)

ALERTING WHEN PLAYING ONLINE
The person who makes an alertable bid, alerts her/his bid. That is he/she clicks the alert button before making the bid. Her/his partner does not see the alert, whilst the opposition do, hence no unauthorised information is passed on. The opposition can now click on the explain box to find out the meaning of the bid from the bidder again unseen by his/her partner.
See links below for self-alerting these are very clear as to alerting action we should take when playing bridge online.
