REALBRIDGE

We're running some trial sessions on RealBridge, the newly developed bridge platform offering an online playing experience that is closer to face-to-face bridge. It includes integrated video and audio so that you can see and talk to the people around your table. Our video bridge sessions offer a fairly similar experience, where we play on BBO in Zoom breakout rooms. However video bridge is tricky to administer, and we're hoping that RealBridge will offer a viable alternative. We also plan to run trials at some other sessions. The first trial sessions will take place on:

Gentle Duplicate on Thurs 26th November at 7.15pm

Learn & Play on Wed 9th December at 10am (this was previously 2nd December)

Gentle Duplicate on Wed 2nd December at 2pm

Duplicate Pairs on Wed 2nd December at 8pm (after the AGM; this is a free session and doesn't need to be pre-booked. More details here)

Entry fee: £3.00 per player (£4.00 for Learn & Play). Sessions must be booked and paid for in advance, and first-time players will need to check that their device works on RealBridge.

Looking further ahead, we are hoping to play multiple teams on RealBridge on the first Wednesday evening of the month, starting on Wed 6th January.

HELP FOR THOSE THAT NEED IT

This is a busy and difficult time for us all.  Our priorities must reflect the need to look after the health and wellbeing of each other and do what we can to avoid spreading the virus.

We have set up a page in the “Members Only” section of the website to help those who are obliged to self-isolate and to enable those who are able and willing to help in some way to register their details and how they can help.  The members only section avoids individuals disclosing personal contact information on an open website. Here is the direct link.

If you have not visited the “Members Only” section before, here’s what you have to do.

Click on the  button in the top right corner of the home page and follow the instructions.

If you are not in one of the “at-risk” categories and your circumstances permit and you feel able, please sign up to help others. Offers of support will be much appreciated by everyone.
