Minehead Bridge Club

Welcome to Minehead Bridge Club. We are a small friendly club and we play duplicate bridge on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the  Minehead Methodist Church Hall (please click on the 'Information" tab in the left hand column for further details). We use Bridge Mates for computerised scoring on both evenings and on Tuesday evenings Master Points are awarded but on Thursdays, when it is a little more relaxed with a mix of beginners and more experienced players, a prize can be won by the winning pair! There is always a spare partner for each evening except for competition nights.Visitors are very welcome to either or both evenings.

THE SITUATION WILL BE MONITORED ON AN ONGOING BASIS AND IT IS SINCERELY HOPED THAT "NORMAL SERVICE" WILL BE RESUMED IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE.

 

 

SCBA ONLINE

PLEASE  READ THIS IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN OUR ONLINE BRIDGEGAMES.

We would love for you to join if you are not already playing.

Somerset online bridge games are now taking place every Monday at 2pm and Wednesday at 7pm with more games to be added if there is demand. These games are free this week and next after which games will cost £1 each. These games are restricted to all Somerset players (you don’t need to be an EBU member) and are friendly and relaxed. We play 18 boards taking about two hours.

It’s easy to join in. 
There is a video here explaining the whole process.

Firstly you need a Bridge Base Online Username and this is how you do that.


1. Go to 
bridgebase.com
2. Top right LOGIN/Register
3. Click on Login/register
4 Click on BECOME A MEMBER (FREE)
5. Fill in the form, Agree to the terms of service and REGISTER
6. Receive an email and do as it says.
7. Tell me what your user name, real name and EBU number if you have one are via email. (scbachair @
icloud.com)

This whole process takes two minutes at most.

Having done that you are good to go but you do need a partner so make sure he/she does the same. If you don’t have a partner for a game please let me know and i will try to fix you up.

Now that you have  your BBO username registered with Somerset this is how you join a game:

Games are open for registration on BBO two hours beforehand so if you wish to play a particular session log onto BBO after this time, click on COMPETITIVE and then ALL TOURNAMENTS where you will see all the  events listed. Search for SOMERSET   to see it listed in the list of PENDING tournaments. Click on this and enter the username of your partner. He/she must be logged in to BBO and will receive an invitation from you to play.  Try to do this at least 15 minutes before the start time so that the director has time to set up the appropriate movement. If it’s your first time try to register for the game very early so we have time to help you if necessary. You can phone Tony on 01935 816566 in these circumstances.

It’s easy and it’s fun so if you are missing your bridge why not get involved?
