The Chapel remains unusable folllowing flooding
over the weekend of 12/13th May
Until it is completely dried out and renovations completed
all tables on Fridays will be in the Barn
and one or both balconies are likely to be in use.
Please let Don know if you have difficulty in using the stairs
so that he can find a position where that will not be necessary.

It is only permissible to make use of information provided by the bidding or play of the cards. Advantage must not be taken of information obtained in any other way, for example because of a hesitation by partner which might indicate a difficult decision.
A Psychic Bid (or psyche) is one which deliberately mis-describes the strength or distribution of a hand in a way which is very different from the system or conventions which a pair claims to be playing. Psyching is not against the laws of bridge but it is not permissible to do it frequently. If partner knows this, it is difficult not to make allowance for this unauthorised information.
There is another reason why we wish to discourage psyching at SBBC. We are a large club with members having a wide range of experience and expertise playing together. The more expert players should not try to take advantage of their greater experience by using such methods.
Our Bridge Directors often hear comments after the end of the session that someone has psyched. We ask all members to please call the Director at the time if they consider that someone has psyched. The Club keeps a record of psyches and will take any necessary action but it is important that all players involved should agree on what has happened.
We encourage players to have Convention Cards, but do not insist on it if playing a simple system. If playing an unusual system it should be announced briefly when arriving at a table and both players should have a completed convention card available for opponents to examine.
If you might be late phone 01628 668700 to notify the Director, or contact your partner.
It is very unhelpful and impolite to the Director, your partner and the other players to be late.
If you are late, without having notified the Club, you might not be allowed to play. This is especially important for the larger sessions where table numbering and movement might need to be changed according to the number of tables in play.
Please display your Blue Badge permit if you park in one of our Disabled Parking spaces.
Otherwise please use the car park behind the building, or on a very busy day it is acceptable to park carefully on the drive.
Thank you for your cooperation.
