Welcome to Buchanan Bridge Club
Re-opening

The first open evening was on Wednesday 20th April. The plan is to hold F2F/BBO hybrid tournaments on Monday evenings, F2F on Wednesday evenings and BBO on Thursday evenings.

If you wish to attend the club, please use the website booking system. Guidance is supplied here.

For F2F you can pay contactlessly upon arrival or preferably online (available in the menu on the day of the event).

Thursday EveningTournament now Open to All

From Thursday 12 May the tournament on BBO on a Thursday evening will be open to all members irrespective of level. 
Start time is 7.00pm. 20 boards. $5.00.
This will continue over the summer until further notice.

Face to Face Bridge

It's been great to be back in the club after all this time. But some of you, like me, may have got more used to playing on BBO's format so here are a few memory joggers of some differences in F2F play:

  • You need to sort your own cards out and hold them up so your opposition can't see them.
  • Remember to use the Stop card.
  • Alert your partner's conventional bids, not your own.
  • You can play and bid out of turn if not careful.
  • There is no Undo - although an immediate retraction can be made if you pull out the wrong bid.
  • Be courteous and pleasant to your partner and opposition - remember that unlike BBO they can hear you!
  • Dummy should remain silent and not comment while their partner is playing the hand.

Most importantly, enjoy yourself.

President
