Best Behaviour at Bridge
Best Behaviour at Bridge

"Bridge is an extremely enjoyable game. Courteous behaviour is an exceptionally important part of that enjoyment. 

If a player at the table, whether face-to-face or online, behaves in an unacceptable manner, the director should be called immediately. Annoying behaviour, embarrassing remarks, or any other conduct which might interfere with the enjoyment of the game is specifically prohibited by Law 74A. Law 91A gives the director the authority to assess disciplinary penalties."

Please call the Director if you think you may have been affected by bad behaviour. You will be helping others as well as yourselves.

Help the Director!

Please make sure you are not only logged on, but also ONLINE from 6.50pm onwards. If you logon early and leave your device for an extended period BBO will knock you off (i.e. make you offline). This means that the director has to adjjust the software settings before we can begin

Some members leave it until 6.59 - 7.00pm before getting back online again and the director then has to make a number of last-minute alterations, which causes delays and increases the possibility of introducing an error in the settings.   If you are deleted from the tournament for being offline at 7pm you will have a very unhappy partner.  Don't expect any sympathy.
