Welcome to The Monday Club, Battersea
Christmas and End of Year Arrangements

Monday Dec 14: Christmas Individual - Play with a Robot, followed by a Zoom Social with a Quiz!

The bridge will start at 7 pm as usual, the only difference being that each player will play with a robot. It will effectively be an individual. You can rent a robot as you register for 25C. The charge for the game will be reduced to $3.75 to compensate. Robots play standard American - click here for their Convention card. It is just a fun game; don't take it too seriously, it will not affect your NGS rating! If you are a systems fiend, here is more information on what robots do: Robot system notes. Robots may be less than human, but they are generally polite and do not shout at their partners. Their standard of play is comparable to an average club player.

After the bridge, there will be a Zoom session - all welcome, Please email the club for the zoom link if you don't receive one before 4 pm, 14th. December. It will be a social meeting with a festive quiz. A chance to say hello to club members.

Please let Marcia know by email if you will be (a) playing (b) attending the social

CORONAVIRUS - CLUB CLOSED BUT ONLINE BRIDGE AVAILABLE

With great regret we have to bow to the inevitable (I bet Boris Johnson has never been called that!) and close the club until we are clear of the dreaded virus. We wish our members good health - don't catch it, but if you do, may it be mild, followed by swift recovery.

In the meantime, you can get your fix playing online. Try the following:

Competitions running throughout the year

The Salver is a pairs competition held over twelve months, normally on the first Monday of each month. On each evening, all pairs finishing above halfway score points depending on their position. For each pair, only the best six scores achieved during the year will count. Prizes awarded to the first six pairs.

The Goblet is an individual competition held over the year, January to the first half of December.

All match-pointed pairs events other than first Mondays or Club Championships count towards this  On each evening, both players of each pair finishing above halfway score points according to their rank.   The competition is designed to encourage members to mix and play with different partners. It is therefore based on a member's best ten scores, but no more than two scores count with any one partner.  A member playing with a non-member is still eligible to score points. Prizes:   Awarded to members finishing in the top six positions.

Improver's Prize is a new competition running all year February to December; it will include all sessions played at the club  (minimum 15). The person with the highest percentage increase in their NGS score will be judged the winner. Prizes for the first six.

 

The Monday Club is happy to be able to offer tuition thanks to one of its members, Kit Jackson.

Meet at Bedford pub in Bedford hill – a great venue for friendly bridge. Monday Mornings: Social Bridge. All standards welcome, including novices and improvers.
