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.

A couple of slam hands around last night.
This was the more difficult one, especially with the pesky 2S interference.
I knew Natasha had 4 hearts but not 5 from the double but my hearts and the whole hand was weak so I repeated my clubs.
If we were to settle for a game contract it had to be in hearts.
6C is the only safe slam contract although one pair made 6H.

ALERTING WHEN PLAYING ONLINE
NB referring to a completed Convention card or summarising your system at the beginning of the round does not free you from the obligation to Alert where necessary
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.
