No resumption of F2F play!

Although the announcements on Tue 27 July removed many of the State's lockdown restrictions, those that remain on indoor gatherings mean that F2F play cannot resume. We expect this to be the situation until, at least, Wed 11 Aug. 

The F2F bridge events affected by this have been cancelled or rescheduled - see calendar for details.

The Friday GNOT Heats, originally scheduled for 16/7 and 23/7 have been rescheduled for 13/8 and 20/8. As far as the Monday GNOT Heats are concerned, we've run out of Mondays! BUT (if you have booked for these sessions please take careful note) they have been rescheduled for Mon 16/8 and WED 18/8 . Yes, Wednesday afternoon! We hope you will be able to play at both sessions.

Existing bookings for these GNOT events have been carried over to the new dates. Please check your diary to make sure you are able to play.

BBO online events will be organised to replace cancelled F2F Monday and Friday Club Pairs events.

As always, the Covid regulation situation is very fluid. Please regularly check this web site for updates to our playing schedule and conditions. 

GNOT Heat Gold point events!

Friday heats now scheduled for 13/8 & 20/8.

To book a COVID vaccination

 

Anyone in the phase 1a or phase 1b should now consider booking a vaccination

Find a vaccination centre near you and make a booking

Phase 1b starts Monday 22 March 2021 for all Australians over 70 and anyone who is immuno-compromised.  Apparently there are 6 million Australians in this category so the moral is to register early, or enjoy a long wait.
