Stop Press: New Wednesday Afternoon Session on BBO & Planning for Reopening

An email to members on Sunday 6th June included the following:

Wednesday Afternoon Session: The Committee are delighted to announce that they will be starting a new session on Wednesday afternoons on BBO. The start time will be 1:30pm  and 20 boards will be played. This session will have no limitations on systems played.
The first Wednesday session will be June 9th, then every Wednesday until further notice- with the exception of June 23rd - when there will NOT be an afternoon session.  This is because a Swiss Teams event has been scheduled for that evening.
Please consult the website for up to date information.

Planning for Reopening: As we near the end of lockdown the Committee is busy planning for reopening. Our priority is to ensure a smooth and safe reopening of the Deva Bridge Club. It has been decided that the club will reopen when government guidelines allow, and we will follow all safety legislation as they come to light. We are planning for this to be a gradual process with initially only one face to face session in the first week, if this goes well we will look to increase that in subsequent weeks.
To minimise risks to our members, anyone who comes to the club will have to have had both vaccinations, with the 2nd dose at least 3 weeks before the club game, or have a medical exemption.

Online bridge will also continue for the foreseeable future. Further information about our re opening will be circulated, but please check the website regularly for any updates. Please be assured the Committee is doing everything possible to open up at the sametime as keeping our members safe.

Thank you,
Deva Bridge Club Committee

Jean genie? Jean genius!

Congratulations to Jean Stelfox, the runaway winner of the "all sessions" ladder for May and, with Russ Whelan, the Friday ladder.

Also, to Jean Hand and Roy Clifford (Monday) and to Ron Coulter and Janice Mairs (Tuesday).
 

Swiss Teams Event
Swiss Teams Event

As previously explained, we are going to run a Swiss Teams event on Wednesday 23rd June instead of a Pivot Teams event.

Swiss Teams should appeal to members who have enjoyed other Deva teams events, e.g. the Deva and Championship Teams competitions as well as the Inter-Club Teams Matches we have had, and indeed the Swiss Teams events we ran in the club when it was open.

Play will start at 7pm and consisit of 6 rounds of 4-boards, 24 boards in total. The competition will be on BBO with automated match assignments after the end of each round matching up teams that are doing as well as each other.   

Teams will register on BBO on the night, find the "Deva Swiss Teams" competition in the "competitive/all tournaments" part of BBO, register with your partner as you would for a normal pairs competition, then look in the tab "select team mates" to see pairs registered and find and link up with your team mates. Table money is the same as Deva pairs competitions, i.e.3BB$ per player. 

So we can guage interest in advance of the night, we need to have sufficient teams to make Swiss Teams viable, can you please complete the form below to indicate you will be entering a team.
