Monday Afternoon Bridge

The Monday afternoon session is proving to be very popular with members and all are invited to come along for a daytime game of “gentle duplicate”. These events are held on REALBRIDGE and we aim to complete up to 16 boards in 2 hours with a start time of 2pm.

To join in all you need to do is click on the link which will appear HERE.

There is no subscription fee required to play on REALBRIDGE. Until March 31st these sessions are free. The committee is exploring a charging structure, possibly via electronic table money, from April. As it seems that face to face bridge is still many months away do come and join us to keep in touch with your bridge playing friends via the AV link on REALBRIDGE  as you play.

If you want to know more please contact

Club Competitions, February / March 2021

Your Committee met yesterday by Zoom and agreed how the club should stage its annual competitions online.

It was agreed that these events would be run on RealBridge, an alternative online platform which some members may have trialled in December.  The reasons for this are that RealBridge offers additional facilities which might make for a more complete bridge experience and also allows the movement to be tailored to suit actual table numbers participating.

The following events will be staged on RealBridge over the coming weeks.

Club Handicap Duplicate - Wednesday 17 February 2021

Myra Hunter Cup - Wednesdays 3 and 10 March 2021

Your Committee would encourage members to give feedback from these competitions, particularly comparing the respective merits of both RealBridge and Bridge Club Live.

Richard is leading on these initiatives and further information will be supplied in due course.

Club Shield 2020/21

The club shield competition is now up and running and current standings are available on the tab to the left "Current Competitions". We have a shortened calendar this year so the effective dates will be from 2nd September to 31st March inclusive. Only the Wednesday events will qualify (we may be able to publish a separate league table for Thursdays) and the same partnership will need to have played at least 12 times in order to qualify. As in previous years only the best 20 scores will count. This enables pairs to discard the occasional poor result (there are about 30 Wednesdays in total, depending on when we play over the holiday period.) Now the competition is set up the table is automatically updated when the results are uploaded to the website (with the discards not being effective until later in the season). This means that whatever the venue, face to face, or online platform the competition will remain open.

STOP PRESS

The version posted yesterday had numerous errors because members use different forms of their name. I've now fixed this by giving these members an alias (for Bridgewebs purposes only.) If you're unhappy with the way your name appears, let me know. This will not affect your EBU or BCL registration and no further action is necessary.

The list should update each week. Please notify me of any other errors.

Bewdley Bridge Club

Bewdley Bridge Club was founded in 1975. We have played at various venues over the years but are now based at an excellent venue, the Elizabeth Mills Centre, Sion Gardens, Stourport DY13 8BH (opposite the Civic Centre). Our regular club night is Wednesday evenings throughout the year starting at 7:00 pm, so please arrive at least 10 to 15 minutes before to allow the Director to set up the movement. We are affiliated to the English Bridge Union and the Worcestershire Contract Bridge Association and encourage participation in events administered by both organisations. The club extends a welcome to new members with tuition available via the club if required or of interest.

Bewdley Bridge Club uses modern bridge equipment and technology and offers an interesting events calendar including EBU Simultaneous Pairs, Swiss Teams and Swiss Pairs as well as normal duplicate pairs.  The club regularly attracts 9 full tables and bridge is played in a friendly atmosphere.

Learn to play Bridge

do you know anyone who wants to learn to play bridge?

Many people will become bored during the lockdown period and this may be the perfect opportunity for them to learn to play bridge. Mike Willoughby and Mike Vetch are planning to hold a fast-track bridge course of 12 weekly lessons commencing on the evening of Tuesday, February 16th. Anyone wishing to participate should enter before Thursday, February 11th. This will be first come first served so early enrolment is advised. Anyone wishing to enrol should contact Mike Willoughby, mike.willoughby@btinternet.com, or Mike Vetch, mike1958v@mail.com

The course fee will be £50 plus the cost of the course book, approximately £25. After 50 days free membership of BCL, participants will have to extend their membership for whatever length they feel is appropriate.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in learning to play our game, or take it up again after a long pause, please pass this information along.

Stay safe,

Eddy
