Face to Face sessions.

Rules and procedures.  

Please read before travelling to the club - Rules may change as the infection numbers change

We ask members to abide by the following rules for the safety of all our members. We would hate to have to turn anyone away at the door.

Please remember to bring proof of your double vaccination. I’m afraid you will not be allowed in otherwise, even if you tell us you have had a past Covid infection. We appreciate that this means some members will not be able to attend, but we are still running on-line sessions, and we will keep the situation under review.

If a member is alerted by NHS app of a close contact, again, please follow government guidance. Do NOT come to the club until you have had a negative PCR test.

• Players should NOT come if they have symptoms of Covid or similar or are unwell

• Players MUST show proof of 2 Covid vaccinations (NHS app or card). Otherwise, I am afraid you will not be allowed in

• We urge you to take a lateral flow test twice/week

• The door will be open 30 minutes before the start time and please and use only the main entrance

• We will be checking your forehead temperature as you enter. If you have a temperature, I am afraid that you will not be allowed in.

• Sanitise your hands as you enter

• If you are playing bridge, we will have your details and so you will not be required to use the QR code or sign in.  Please don't come if you haven't arranged a partner.

• Table Money. We will not be collecting money. Your £2:50 charge will show on your account on the website. An invoice will be sent at the end of the month end along with details of how to pay.

• Please keep any bags and coats that you bring in to a minimum

• Please do not bring food into the club

• Please try not to congregate in groups as you come in or leave

• Please go directly to the designated room (judging by our attendee numbers, we may use several rooms).  More mobile members to sit E/W

• Players will be encouraged to observe 1m distancing (so no hugs and kisses, tempting though it may be!)

• Face masks are optional but recommended.  They will be available at the club

• Please sanitise your hands at the beginning and end of each table played and encourage others and when leaving the toilets

• You will be able to make a drink in the kitchen and we will advise you on the procedure to follow before we start play.

.• Carry your bidding boxes with you when moving tables at the end of each round

These rules have been made to keep us all as safe as possible. We will have helpers on hand to guide you through these if you need, so do not worry. We hope you enjoy your session.

The Cashless Club

The Cashless club - Updated 25/5/2021

We are now using the Bridgewebs attendance module whereby we can record fees payable by individuals who play bridge either at the premises or online.  We can also show monies owing for special events such as the Bridge holiday and the annual membership fee.   

We have sent our invoices for March and April.  These will continue a short time after each month end.  Any payments received during the month will be uploaded to bridgewebs shortly before invoices are sent.  The invoices will show either the exact amount owed or the amount individuals are in credit.  The invoice includes a link to their Bridgewebs statement.  For security, this link is live for just 2 days.  Members can see their account at any time by signing into their account on the website and selecting the tab for 'payments'.  CAUTION:  As each chargeable session/event is recorded on bridgewebs, the system updates immediately with the debit amount.  Credits are uploaded at month end.  For now, the bulletin on the left side of the web front page will show when the last set of payments were updated.  Non-members can request an account statement at any time. 

Payment.  Our preferred method of payment is by bank transfer.  An alternative method will be for our members to set up a standing order.  A third option is to send a cheque.  We have a card reader so we can accept contactless payment. The final option is to pay cash at the club but we would prefer not to handle cash.

if you have any questions about this system please email your questions to ianwalkerdine@gmail.com.

Online Events

All our sessions are open to non-members but you must register by filling in the form on the right hand side of the page.  You need do this only once but do it as soon as you can.  We create our 'allowed players' list from these submissions - usually several hours before the event.  The events list is shown on the calendar (top right).  Monday PM and Friday PM (BBO) are level2.  Thursdays, our RealBridge game, we allow more complex systems but the not so proficient players are welcome.
