Alerts and Announcements

With effect from 1st September 2022, the EBU has revised its rules on alerts and announcements.
Most of the new announcements that have to be made affect those who play transfers after a 1C opening, or play 2 over 1 (the system that robots play on BridgeBaseOnline).
One interesting change is that you no longer announce the point range after opening a strong, balanced 2NT.
So, for most of us, there’s not much of concern.

Remember, when it’s your turn to bid, if you need to know you can always ask your opponent what their partner’s bid means.
There is still no requirement to alert/announce the meaning of a jump overcall. Although the modern way is to play it as weak, we still have members who play it strong. This can catch you out, so we suggest you always check.

A summary of the new rules is on the club noticeboard.

PANIC OVER?

COVID

THE NEXT STEPS

 

 

The Committee understands that all legal restrictions relating to groups associating are to be lifted from Thursday 27th January and the wearing of masks will no longer be compulsory.

Whilst we are inclined to follow the government guidelines we would like to point out we are a vulnerable group of people it might be advisable to continue to wear your mask. We ask you to please consider others in your interactions in the bridge room.

We will continue to ask players to use the hand gel provided on entering the building and to maintain as much distance as is possible whilst moving around.

We will continue to ventilate the room so please dress appropriately.

We appreciate some people may wish to continue to wear their masks whilst in an enclosed space and we support them with this decision.

If you may have been in contact with the virus please take a lateral flow test before coming to the bridge club.

If you are feeling unwell please do not come and spread coughs and sneezes.

From Thursday 27th January it will no longer be compulsory to wear a mask.

Competitions

We plan to restart the quarterly and annual competitions in January 2022
