  Duplicate Bridge & Corona Virus
Duplicate Bridge & Corona Virus
Following from the government recommendations published on Monday 16th March it is clear that duplicate bridge in all our clubs has to cease immediately and possibly for many weeks.
The EBU had already cancelled all its events until after Easter and this is also very likely to be extended further.
Some might considering playing in their own homes (particularly knockout matches) but we would not recommend this as it would still contravene the advice to avoid unnecessary social contact. For some online bridge may however still be an option.
With regard to county sponsored events, we have decided to suspend the deadline for playing the final matches in the Lady Connell competition in the hope that it may eventually be possible to complete these before the start of next season.We are aware that this may create problems with qualification for the Pachabo but it is highly likely that this event along with the Corwen will ultimately be cancelled. The EBU is aware of this issue and we will negotiate if necessary over team entry requirements should the epidemic situation improve such that the Pachabo can proceed.
No draw has yet been made for the Cheshire Salver and we have decided to cancel this event for this year.
Teams eligible to enter this after defeat in early rounds of the Lady Connell will receive a 50% refund of entry fees.
Christopher Raymond
MCBA chairman.
