Don't you just wish sometimes that you could play a hand again?

Well, you can...thanks to the wonders of Bridgewebs.

Committee meeting report

An Update June 11th

Following on from the committee meeting held today I am writing to let you know of three of the decisions that were made:-

  1. In future players will not be allowed to sign up to play with a robot in our Wednesday Online Bridge sessions.  Obviously if someone loses connection during the evening a robot will be substituted for them and a pair of robots will be used where we have a half table. We offer an (underused) Partner Broker service so if you are in need of a partner please contact Joan - contact details are on our website.
  2. We are delaying the AGM until September (when we hope to recommence F2F bridge). In the meantime if you have any views or concerns on any club issue please contact me or any other committee member.
  3. We are going to run a further trial evening of RealBridge on 30 June.  We want to offer our members the service and playing platform that is preferred so please let us know what you think!
WELCOME TO BURY ST EDMUNDS BRIDGE CLUB
Joan: partner broker

Formed in 1981, we are a friendly duplicate bridge club welcoming new or visiting players and meet every Thursday evening at 7pm.

We currently have around 50 members and using a well lit room, we have tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits available all evening. 

Our Partner Broker is Joan Watsonwho can be contacted via j.watson120@btinternet.com

We play simultaneous pairs on four occasions in the year and also have teams and individual events.  There is a Pairs League and a Players League in operation. 

Our address is SOUTHGATE COMMUNITY CENTRE, CAIE WALK, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk IP33 2PJ. Telephone 01284 703705

There is another bridge club in Bury, Abbeygate Club, and they meet on Monday and Tuesday nights for duplicate bridge.  Many of our members are common to both clubs

REALBRIDGE

REALBRIDGE.

MANY OF YOU WILL ALREADY HAVE SAMPLED THIS SOFTWARE AT STANSFIELD AND SUFFOLK SITE BUT

IF NOT

To join the session please click on a link as shown below.

https://play.realbridge.online/cw.html?p=210602128852&q=BuryTrial02June

Once on the home page you will need to fill in your name and EBU membership number in the ID box and then join a table, opposite your partner, if they are already there. If they are not there just click on an empty space. It’s as easy as that!

Three more points to take note of:-

  1. Use Chrome rather than Edge as your browser – RealBridge works much better on Chrome
  2. If you lose connection – Refresh or log back in again
  3. If necessary you can control the volume when playing by clicking on the mic symbol to the right of a person’s name.

If you need a partner please contact Joan 01284 787286 and she will send an email round to members.

🏆 Anne Nunn Trophy 🏆

                                                                        CONGRATULATIONS!

The event was jointly won by Jonathan Everett & Maria Reynolds from Abbeygate Club who have become regular supporters of the Bury Online sessions this year playing East/West and Bury Regulars Pamela Pope and Phil Mathews playing North/South.

It was great to see 14 tables last evening and there were very few problems apart from the usual internet fall-outs.

 

CORONA VIRUS - CLUB CLOSURE

Please note that because the corona virus is a great threat to older people, the committee has decided to temporarily suspend the club with immediate effect.  There will therefore be no meetings until you are notified by email (if such permission has been given) and this notice is changed.  We are sorry to suspend bridge but we believe it is in the best interest of us all.

HOW TO PLAY BRIDGE ONLINE

Never played bridge on-line - and intimidated by what's involved? DON'T BE!

An A-B-C guide to playing bridge at BridgeBaseOnline (BBO) which covers the most basic points - how to get started, how to join a game - has been created for Suffolk Bridge by Peter Bushby, and even includes some very fancy film clips.

The big advantage of playing on BBO is that you can partner a real person (for example, your regular partner) - rather than a robot - and it only costs $3.00 per game, of which 70% is returned to the relevant club later.

So with no prospect of any club bridge for at least three months and probably longer don't feel left out...just click on HOW TO PLAY BRIDGE ON LINE.

In addition to the basics, the comprehensive guide also shows how you can enter Suffolk's regular Sunday evening duplicate, how to play a match between two teams of four, and much more besides.

The EBU has also produced a guide on how to play on BBO. Click on EBU to see.
