EBU diaries

An EBU diary is circulated to all eligible members each year with the August magazine.  Anyone who wants a copy must opt in, e.g. by changing your account settings at My EBU. Click on 'Account' in the top right corner, select 'My Details', and then in the page's 'Account Settings' section, under the 'Magazine/Diary Preference' option use the drop down list to make your choice.

Any changes to the information printed in the diary are listed on the EBU's diary changes page.

DATA PROTECTION
Membership forms are available, complying with our obligations under Data Protection Regulations. If you haven't signed one, copies are available on club nights. Ask the Director. There are also simpler forms for visitors - one form for EBU members or another for those who aren't.
If you play at the club without signing the form, your agreement to its contents will be inferred. 
Welcome to Blewbury Bridge Club

Welcome

Welcome to Blewbury Bridge Club!

We play face-to-face in the Vale Room at Blewbury Village Hall, with duplicate bridge on Tuesdays (7:30 pm) and often a Social Duplicate Bridge evening on Fridays (7:30 pm but currently suspended for the summer).  We also play online on RealBridge on Thursdays (7:00 pm).  Please be ready to play ten minutes before any start time! Visitors are always warmly welcomed.

We also run Funbridge sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  Please contact the Chairman for further details.

REALBRIDGE WITH WANTAGE BRIDGE CLUB

 Blewbury Bridge Club online sessions are now on Realbridge every fortnight, alternating with Wantage Bridge Club, who kindly invite us to join them on those nights. Wantage's website will have the RealBridge log-in link, either here or here. (Effectively, they're joint events.) We'll need the name and EBU number of anyone who wants to play. Send to Dermot Paddon at djmp99@gmail.com. For payment details, see panel below.

If you want to play in Wantage's sessions, they'll need your details too. If in doubt, contact the Blewbury Chairman.

Wantage upcoming sessions on Realbridge: June 13th (today) and 27th, July 11th and 25th.

Blewbury upcoming sessions on Realbridge: June 20th, July 4th and 18th.

ONLINE PAYMENTS

For Blewbury Bridge Club sessions (both face-to-face and on Realbridge), payments should be made directly to the Club’s bank account. You don't need to pay separately for each session, but can instead pay a lump sum (say £5, £10 or £20 for instance) as a credit which will gradually deplete as you play sessions.

Table money will be £1.50 per Thursday RealBridge session and £2.50 per face-to-face session (both Tuesdays and Fridays).  Combined payments are no problem.  We'll monitor funds received against sessions paid regularly.

The club's bank account details are as follows

  • Account name : Blewbury Bridge Club
  • Sort Code : 40 19 35
  • Account number : 21305107

You'll need a reference with the payment that identifies who you are and the purpose of the payment, to distinguish from receipts from other Members or from yourself for other purposes (e.g. subscriptions). In the 'reference' line of your BACS transfer, please enter the following

  • First two characters: TM
  • Next six characters: Membership number – your EBU number
  • Final characters: Your surname (or as many letters at the start of your surname that will fit in the remainder of the bank’s reference)

Please leave spaces between these three pieces of information.

Example: TM 405145 Allen will be the reference for me.

If making transfers from the same bank account to cover more than one member, please make separate transfers with each member's number reference and surname.

If anyone can't use this payment method, please contact the Chairman and we'll make alternative arrangements.

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.
