Hosting

Members will be aware of how much work goes on both visibly and behind the scenes to ensure smooth operation of the club - in numerous areas such as directing, dealing, refreshments and finance - to name just a few. An area where more help would be welcome is in members volunteering to host occasionally especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The hosting system (which is a condition of membership) where feasible has been well used since its inception many many years back with many members  benefiting and forming new friendships and bridge partnerships through its use. However there is a risk that we may not be able to continue if more members don't come forward and volunteer to take on the role of host. So - if you play regularly and don't make a contribution to the running of the club in any other way - then please consider hosting every few months - even if you have no intention of using it yourself. Don't be afraid of doing so, we encourage hosts and hosted to agree simple systems to play on the night and to adopt a "no blame approach"!

Please simply identify a date when you are free and put your name on the list on the noticeboard.
If you'd like to discuss the way this operates then please speak to any committee member.

Directors needed please!

The Club is in urgent need of more Directors. We are not asking anyone to go on a Directors course but anyone who could facilitate a duplicate session with enough basic knowledge on rules and the various movements. Please let yourself be known! Thank you.

Code of Conduct
Bolton Bridge Club Code of Conduct

 

It is part of the aims of the club to be a friendly and courteous club where players of all standards can enjoy a game of bridge in an atmosphere of relaxed good manners. We expect all players to observe the following:

Be friendly and courteous to opponents and partner at all times, greet people properly when they arrive at the table.

Please cease discussion of hands when your opponents arrive at the table.

Do not comment on opponents play or bidding, beyond a genuine compliment, unless asked and do not gloat over any good results

Do not argue with your partner or opponents at the table

Please keep noise to a minimum when other tables are in play

Do not under any circumstances disturb any table still in play

Your mobile phone should be off or on silent during a session of bridge, do not use it in the bridge room

Please call the director if you think there may be an infraction and do not argue his ruling, but if you wish to you can ask for an appeal to be heard at the end of a session.

Remember it should never cause offence to call the director and the issues of concern should not be discussed before his arrival at the table.
