CHANGES TO SOME OF OUR WEEKLY TOURNAMENTS ON BBO
We have made changes to the way we run some of our smaller tournaments, namely our Tuesday afternoon, Thursday afternoon and Sunday evening sessions. These changes (which you may or may not notice when playing) have come into effect on w/c 3rd May and should have the following benefits -

* there are no longer any excessive waiting times between rounds
* you are no longer playing against the same opposition multiple times

A consequence of these improvements is that these tournaments have a "Clocked" setting, so for 2-board rounds there will be a strict 14-minute time limit.

We have initially implemented these changes for a 1-month trial period (during May) and are awaiting feedback from members. 
You can give us your opinion here.

Our other tournaments are not affected and are running as before.

The club is in a 19th century listed building and yet has all the benefits of technology with computer-dealt boards, Bridgemates on all tables, etc.  Up to thirty-seven tables in play can be accommodated over the three floors of the building.
