COVID

Covid is on the increase again.  Although most of us have had jabs, let's not be complacent, we can still get ill.  If you have symptoms (continuous cough, high temperature, loss of taste or smell) please do not come to the club.  At the club, use the hand sanitiser on entry and after using the toilet.  Masks are optional.

Table Money

 

I am aware that a few members have missed the various announcements about increases in our table money.  At our committee meeting on Saturday 10th September, following a request from some members, there has been a few changes to our policy on visitor fees.

Our Charges

On-Line – our charge remains at $3 (American Dollars)

From September 1st the basic table money at the club has increased to £4.00

There will be an additional fee of £2 for non-members except on line.

Exceptions:

Monday evening, our joint venture with Westcotes, all are welcome with no additional charge for non-members.

Thursday am/lunch/pm is £5 (and an additional visitor fee of £2).

Visitors may play without incurring the £2 visitor fee for 3 times. 

Visitors may apply for membership and, if approved, will be re-imbursed for any visitor fee payment made since the date of their application.

Reason for increases

I am sure everyone is aware of the current inflation level (thanks Putin).  Electricity has already more than doubled and will probably get worse.  Food prices for our Thursday lunch are going up.  Plans are underway to reduce our energy usage, more details will be published shortly.

Buckby Pivot Teams

Competitions

Buckby Trophy

On Wed 7th Sept. 8 teams played in our pivot team of 4 event. Thanks to Alastair Lennox for persuading members to take part when attendance at face-to-face bridge has not recovered since covid.  The winners were Ian Bruce, Lyn Hilton, Jonathan Hughes and Simon Stokes finishing well ahead of the second place team of Tom Lindop, John Milne and Dick & Lucy Pathan.

Woodier Cup

This is effectively the CBC champion pairs and this email is being sent to NGS 10 and above although any CBC member can enter. We want to run this in October/November and we would like your opinion on 3 options.

  1. A single Wednesday evening session 24+ boards to fit movement selected.
  2. Two Wednesdays with aggregation of results over the 2 sessions. [unless numbers so high that first is used as a qualifier - unlikely]
  3. A Sunday afternoon session approx 36 boards with a break for afternoon tea.

>Whatever date[s] are chosen they will not clash with LCBA events.
Please email Richard Bell:- bell.vet@btinternet.com with your preferences in order, if you are interested in playing. [If you don't intend to play don't reply. If you would only play on 1 or 2 options only include them]
