Dear EBU member
This email is being sent to you in your capacity as a club secretary, competition secretary or main contact. Please forward to anyone you feel may be interested in taking part in the below events.
It is starting to feel festive, but there is still plenty of bridge to be played, albeit online! Below are highlighted some of the competitions taking place over the Christmas period.
Online Year End Congress
Due to Covid, the usual Year End Congresses in London and Blackpool will not be taking place face-to-face this year. Instead we will be running an online Year End Congress, held on RealBridge.
The online congress will be held between Christmas and New Year over four days, 27th to 30th December.
There will be the usual events, Mixed or Open Pairs, Jack High Pairs, Swiss Pairs and Teams. The Swiss Pairs and Swiss Teams are both stratified events.
There will also be a Jack High Swiss Pairs, with a Zoom seminar the next morning to go through the hands. It will also be stratified for pairs who are 9-high or 6-high.

Daily Online Games
The daily online games currently held on Funbridge and BBO will continue as usual for the most part over the Christmas period. However, players should check the EBU website for any changes, especially with regard to Christmas Day.

The EBU Online Knockout
Every year the EBU holds an Online Knockout Teams Competition. As you evidently enjoy playing bridge online, perhaps you would like to get together a team to take part in the 2021 competition? Entries are being taken now.
It is for teams of four (from a squad of up to six), all of whom must be members of the 'home union' federations - so tell your friends in all corners of the British Isles.
There is a plate competition, at no extra charge, for those losing their first match. Half-price entry is available to junior players.
Green Points are awarded for each match won in the main competition; Blue Points are awarded in the plate competition.
For more information please visit the event webpage.
