Kibitzing Has Returned
Your BOD has decided to permit kibitzing during our games. A kibitzer must follow the guidelines listed below. Any kibitzer that does not follow the guidelines will lose the right to kibitz.
· Must ask permission from the players at the table to kibitz. Any player at the table can refuse to have a kibitzer at the table.
· Must join at the start of a round
· Watch only one hand at the table
· May only watch at one table and cannot move to a different table during a round
· May not return to a table once they leave
· May not have their score sheet out during the match
· May not talk to the players at the table
· May not talk to their partner during the auction period and or play period
· May not compare scores or talk about what they did at their table after the hand is played or after the round is completed
Listed above are guidelines to help the kibitzer, and the players being kibitzed, understand what is expected from them at the table when kibitzing is occurring. Please adhere to these guidelines to prevent any unauthorized information and a procedural penalty.
Please respect the other bridge players and talk in hushed tones if your play is completed.
Excessive, Slow Play will not be tolerated. Players will be warned and then penalties can be assessed at the directors discretion.

Preplan your bid and then choose the bid from the box. Don’t let your fingers do your thinking!♥If a stop card was used, or a jump bid has occurred, the next bidder has an extra 10 seconds to think about their next bid.SILENCE IS GOLDEN♥Conversation stops when you remove your hand from the board.♥Wait to discuss the current boards until the end of the round.
