Maureen Laffey

We are very sad to announce the very sudden death of Maureen Laffey on Tuesday 4th May.
Maureen had played bridge online in the SBBC gentle session that very morning with her good friend Gill Busby.  

She had been a regular player for many years on Tuesday afternoons at SBBC
and will be greatly missed by her many friends.

Delayed Results this Week

As an EBU Virtual Club, we have been informed by the EBU that results for Monday 10th to Thursday13th
will not be available for download to our website uintil after 10.00 p.m. each day.

This is because they might interfere with  EBU Simultaneous Pairs which are being held this week.

This restriction will not apply to the RealBridge session on Wednesday morning,
for which results will be available shortly after 1.00 p.m. as usual

Garden Cities Event

Burnham/New Amersham Qualify for Final

Congratulations to the Burnham Cluib, greatly assisted by New Amersham, who came third from 14 teams
in the South of England final of the Garden Cities Trophy on Saturday 8th May.
This EBU event is for the County League of Eight winners each season. 
Because the County League was not finished the last time it was held,
Burnham were allowed to bring in an extra pair from New Amersham.

The team was David Owen & Bill Godenzie, Nigel Marlow & Nigel Lancaster,
Evelyn Crossley & Eva Wallen, Bob Holder & David Beever 
plus guest stars Dick Davey & Nigel Wolfendale
from New Amersham
who finished with the top cross-imped score from the whole field.

Four teams each from the North and South Regional qualifiers will now play in the National Final in June

For anyone new to RealBridge, there is an excellent guide to its use and features on the Berks & Bucks CBA website
There are two points regarding equipment which we suggest you should check first
1. Test your video and microphone as described on RealBridge online to ensure that  they are working.
2. We do not recommend using a small screen iPad,. A laptop or PC is less likely to lead to problems.
