DATA PROTECTION
Membership forms are available which help the club comply with its obligations under the new Data Protection Regulations. If you have not yet taken the opportunity to sign one there are copies available on club nights - please do ask the Director for one. If playing as a visitor there are separate, simpler forms available - one for those who are already EBU members and another for those who are not.
In the event that you decline to sign the new form, but continue to play at the club anyway, your agreement to the contents of the form will be inferred.

Welcome to Blewbury Bridge Club
Welcome
Welcome

Welcome to Blewbury Bridge Club. We normally play in the Vale Room at Blewbury Village Hall, but have temporarily re-located - see the notice just below this.  The club plays duplicate bridge on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 7.30pm prompt (please arrive by 7.20pm). Visitors are always warmly welcomed.

We also often run friendly and relaxed Novices sessions on Friday evenings.

Covid-19 Precautions for F2F bridge

1) Please do not attend if you have cold-like symptoms. It would also be useful if participants could carry out a lateral flow test on the day they attend (and obviously not attend if positive!)

2) Only those who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 should attend.

3) Ventilation will be from open windows and doors.

4) Facemasks will be voluntary - but do please use one if you feel safer that way.

5) Please do NOT use oil-based hand sanitizer. The club will supply alcohol-based sanitizer which will reduce the risk of grease transferring from the cards to the dealing machine, which would cause problems.

6) However, we would ask everyone to regularly use the sanitizer, at the start of the evening and between each round.

F2F BRIDGE

We will be re-starting F2F bridge on Tuesday evenings only from April 5th. Do please make every effort to play if you feel able to - and arrive by 7.20 for a prompt 7.30pm start. A contact for partnership arrangements is included elsewere on this page. Alternatively contact the Chairman directly.

Note that we are not charging any table money initally, until we can see that a regular successful session will be ongoing on Tuesday evenings. Nor, initially, will we be supplying refreshments - please bring your own.

We will continue to offer online club sessions on BBO on Thursday evenings, and club Funbridge sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays, together with a Novices' Funbridge session on Fridays. All these Funbridge sessions, which are restricted to club members, run from 10.30am to 10.30pm for maximum flexibility - participants may play at any time between those hours.

Please contact the Chairman if you would like any further information.

Darkness

Please note that Blewbury is a 'Dark' Village - by choice we do not have street lights.

Therefore, particularly after dark in the winter months, the car park outside the Village Hall can be very dark and surfaces not necessarily level and secure for walking.

It is therefore advisable for members to use a torch when making their way to/from their cars before and after bridge sessions.

the Club's AGM will be held on

Tuesday 11th October

at 7pm

in the Vale Room

followed by a shortened session of F2F bridge
