Claygate now uses a wireless scoring system called BridgePal, which runs on smartphones and tablets.  The implementation team today consists of Gavin Wilson and Carol Wildig, but more volunteers are very welcome.  We will provide as much help and training as each North needs to enter the scores into the handset.

Further information about BridgePal can be found here.

We can now run two simultaneous sections.
Claygate now has the cards and equipment to enable two simultaneous sections on a Monday evening.

A stash of made-up two-section duplicate hands (2x30 boards) will be kept in a crate in the store-room at the Day Centre.

The primary goal is to enable members to play as great a percentage of the boards as possible.  This has something to do with 'fairness', as explained in various tomes on duplicate movements.

A by-product of the two-section system is that you could end up playing three or four hands per table, and you will certainly avoid playing against members on the other side of the room.  To some, this may be an advantage.  We will see.

Good luck!
