It is that time of year when Joan, our Treasurer, invoices us for our subscriptions.

Club Rule - Seating Positions at the Table

Members and Visitors are reminded of the following rule:

At ALL Club sessions, prior to the playing of the first board, the tossing of a coin or drawing of lots will determine the NS & EW seating positions if one pair requests it.  Tournament Directors, players who for health reasons prefer to sit or move and those who can’t use the electronic scorers are exempt from this rule and get their choice.

Barrier Details and Instructions Update – Sainsbury’s Gate Entrance

The Harbour Estate gate at Sainsbury’s (Tillysburn) is now controlled by automatic entrance and exit barriers from approximately 21.00 to 06.00 (Monday to Saturday) and all day Sunday.  If you come to the barrier and it is down drive up to the barrier, stop beside the pedestal, and present your Belfast Harbour plastic pass to the panel with a key on it and the barrier will then magically rise!  If you haven't got a pass press the intercom button and wait for a reply; state that you are coming from or going to Kelvin Malone Bridge Centre and the barrier will then magically rise!

In the event of a problem ring the Belfast Harbour Police on 028 9055 3000 and they will sort it out.
