Return to online bridge - a message from Chairman Brian Davis

 

Please note that, with effect from next Wednesday (27th October) we will no longer be meeting at the Royal British Legion for face-to-face Bridge. 

The Committee are disappointed to have to take this decision, but the combination of an increased threat from the latest variant of the Coronavirus coupled with the inclement conditions at the RBL with doors open for extra ventilation as winter approaches, makes this the prudent way forward. 

The decision will be kept under review and, if and when circumstances allow, we will revert to F2F club nights, but this is unlikely to be before December. 

We are particularly sorry that this will directly affect some members who are unable to play online. 

We have advised the RBL of the decision and will continue to pay a retainer to ensure that we can return when circumstances permit. 

In practical terms, the booking system will no longer apply as we are not restricted online. We expect to be using the BBO system as before and Chris Doyle will be in touch with the details of the next session in due course. 

Online Bridge

 

The club enjoyed eight sessions of face-to-face bridge through September and October, but with the deteriorating Covid situation, the committee has decided that from Wed 27th October
Club Night sessions are being played online using Bridge Base Online.

These are held every Wednesday starting at 7:15pm.

If you haven't played before but would now like to join in - please send the following details to Chris Doyle by the preceeding Tuesday:
Name;  Email;  BBO ID; and EBU number
Chris's contact details can be found via the Information, Committee page.

If you are new to Online Bridge, a guide is available by clicking HERE or on the Information Tab on the Home Page left hand menu.

 

Review the bidding and play for BBOnline Club Nights

 

The results of our BBOnline sessions are available in the usual "Results" column on our website.

Additionally, within the BBO website you can follow the bidding and play for each hand.

Login to BBO, then click the "History" tab on the right hand side.

Choose the session you wish to see by clicking from the list displayed,
then click the white in blue "Results" button. In
 the table that opens, click your own percentage score for further information, then "Movie" to see the hands.
It sounds complicated, but is very quick once you are used to it!
