Message from the President 2021

Dear Members, 

Here’s hoping 2021 will be a good year. We survived 2020 and managed to keep playing bridge, all be it on- line. Plans are now afoot to have a Draw for Partners competition with PRIZES

CAVBC will run a weekly Draw for Partner Game from the 13th January onwards

Wednesday 13th January                   – Novice Only

Thursday 21st January                       – Inter B Only

Thursday 28th January                      – Inter A and Area Masters and above

Tuesday 2nd February                       – All Grades (deferred due to Sim Pairs running this week)

The format of these Draw for Partner games is as follows:

A player must pre enter for the game through the CAVBC Bridgeweb Site up to 19.00 on the day before the game

A random draw for partners is made on the morning of the game where we match experienced players with less experience players

Players are informed of their partners by text on the afternoon of the game.

We set up a unique Include List for the game, so that only pre entered players can take part and we check to see that they all register correctly before the start of the game.

We do not allow Kibitzers for these games.

We will “pay” BBO$ into the winners’ BBO account within 2 days of the end of the game. The prizes will be based upon the number of tables in each game 

Again, as already mentioned in previous letters, help is available for anyone not playing on-line but would like to start

In the meantime, until we get to meet again,
Stay Safe

Kind regards
Myra Birmingham
