Stand-by Volunteers Needed

We urgently need more volunteers to act as Stand-bys for sessions in July
Anyone who acts as a stand-by will get a free session
when they play ,or for their next game if not

Please contact Chrys Poole on 01628 440600,
preferably as a pair, but singles also welcome.
This helps to ensure that everyone gets a game
and we avoid having to use robots

Our new Gentle Bridge sessions are being well attended

in playing  competitively against others of similar standard,
before playing with more experienced players.
Inexperienced players may also play with an experienced partner
 who is helping them.

18 boards are played, with a time limit for each round.
Players may register for the event in BBO from about 9.00 onwards.

As for all online games, players must register
with Bridgebase Online to get a User Name
and then let Chrys Poole know that you wish to play online

Only simple systems - EBU Level 1 or Level 2 may be used.

A £3.00 fee is charged for all online sessions
