Face-to-Face from First of Feb.

Bridge in the Barn
restarts on Tuesday 1st. February


Government restrictions have kept the barn closed since Christmas and, luckily for us,
the closure has enabled essential maintenance work to be carried out without otherwise affecting Bridge.

Government restrictions are now being eased and it seems likely that the worst of the pandemic is over.
We have well spaced tables, good ventilation and provide hand steriliser
We leave mask wearing to individual discretion.


Initially we will have three weekly sessions, as before Christmas

7.30 on Tuesday Evening - 24 boards
10.30 on Wednesday Morning - 24 boards
10.30 on Thursday Morning - Gentle Bridge - 18 or 20 boards.

The Table Money will be £4.00 per player for each event

Advance booking, by noon on the day before is necessary for all sessions.
Contact to reserve your place
The event will be cancelled if numbers are insuffient and players will be notified

The Online programme will continue as at present

Register Online in Good Time

Please Login Early for Online Games

Please register for online games in good time.  Preferably 10 but at least 5 minutes before starting time is appropriate.
Last minute logins cause  difficulties for the Tournament Director and might not be accepted

Names Please!

This is a reminder that the Club expects that everyone playing must show their full name
(First and Surname) in their profile.
As a Club site, members should be able to see who they are playing against.
May we remind some of our newer players and a few more experienced ones that they should comply.

Undos in Bidding

Undos in Bidding
The Club now allows Undos for misclicks in the bidding, but not in the play.
As soon as you realise that you have misclicked you may ask for an Undo. 
The opponents will usually agree, in wh
ich case you may change your bid without penalty. 
If an opponent objects, or in case of doubt, the Director should be called.
This brings us into agreement with most other Clubs

Please note that Undos are permitted only for genuine misclicks. 
You may not ask for an Undo if you realise that you made the wrong bid.

Undos are still not permitted for misclicks during the play

Burnham Bridge Club are continuing to disallow all Undos

Standby Pairs Wanted
We are grateful to the members who act as Standby Pairs, to avoid the need to have robots.
As always, we are seeking volunteers to fill in gaps in the list for the next few weeks.

Please have a look at the email which has been sent out and let Evelyn know if you can help
