Dates for your diary

Please be aware that the Cox Cup session for April will be earlier than normal and not the second Monday in the month.  This is because Easter Monday falls on our usual date.

The Summer Party is planned for the 26 July.  Please put this date in your diary.

Welcome to Hailsham Bridge Club
A BIT OF HELP - USING BBO

I hope you have all received a copy of David Glazbrook's manual on how to get started with on line bridge.  You can also look at You Tube for help and Berwick Bridge Club has an excellent article with links to help you too.  Good luck!

The unfamilar:  YOU have to alert your own conventional bids not your partner.  Kibitzers are people who view your game.  To stop playing and leave the table you will click on your name (shown below the hand of cards.)

You can "chat" to your partner, all at the table or the viewers.  There is a chat line right at the bottom of the screen below your hand.  Choose who you want to speak to and type your message.  eg things like "Well played pard", "Sorry that didn't go well did it" or "Got to go now"

Use the free casual set up to start a table and play with friends but if you want to play in a formal competition you will have to buy BB$.  This is done with a bank card and are American dollars.

EBU ON LINE BRIDGE - some free!

 

From Monday the EBU will be running a free BBO teams league for members.  All you need to do is send an e mail to charlie@ebu.co.uk with a team of 4 or 6 including everyone's BBO nicknames and ebu numbers or e mail your pair and Charlie will find you team mates.

Games will take place Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 6.pm   Master points will be awarded

NB The EBU is hosting 4 matchpointed pairs games each day on BBO at 1400, 1530, 1930 and 2100. Each game is 12 boards in duration and costs $1.50 to play in. If your club is not already meeting up online why not suggest to members to join one of these EBU games, perhaps the one closest to your normal bridge session?

End in sight?

We are being told that there is light at the end of the tunnel

 

David Glazbrook tells us that during his working life he saw a notice on an office wall

"If you can see light at the end of the tunnel, it's a good chance it's an express train coming towards you"  Stay safe.
