  1. Cold and flu season is upon us.  Please be mindful of NOT spreading germs.  Cough in your sleeve/elbow, not in the cards, not in your hands.
  2. When a round is called and you are still playing, please have dummy pass the boards one table lower.
  3. When you finish a board after a round is called, be mindful of next E/W players waiting for their table.  Do not start discussing the board, do not write down your score at the table.  ACCEPT the score and move on quickly.
  4. When the bidding has ended, please make your lead and/or put dummy down BEFORE writing down the contract on your score sheet.
  5. Please do not snap or bend the cards.  Do not cough or sneeze into the cards and do not palm the cards.  These bar-coded cards cost $3.00 per deck.  
  6. No hovering over bidding box.  Be sure of your bid BEFORE you reach for the bidding box.
  7. Always lead FACE DOWN and always ask:  "No questions partner?"  This eliminates many leads out of turn and many director calls.
  8. "Remember bridge is a timed event. Please play in a timely fashion. “If you can’t play well, play fast,” or “Talk less, play more,” are good reminders.  Anyone unable to complete the boards on a given round will receive an artificial score. No Play for both sides if none are at fault. Average minus for both sides if both are at fault. If one side is at fault, they receive an Average minus and their opponents an Average plus. A good director is proactive in this matter. Walk through your playing area when there are seven or eight minutes left in the round. Caution players who have fallen behind. Pay attention to which pairs are causing the problem so when penalties need to be applied, you’re sure which pairs to blame."  Quoted from Director's Manual.
  9. When passing boards please place them in order and North facing the North player.  When putting boards away on the assembly table at the end of the game, please place them in order again.  Thanks.
