PERTH BRIDGE CLUB EVENTS

New Arrangements from Monday 15 November 

 

From Monday 15 November, Perth Bridge Club will be running 3 events each week. This is based on the information fed back from the members in our recent poll.

 

On Tuesdays, there will be face-to-face club bridge at King Street at 6:45 pm.

 

On Wednesdays, there will be a face-to-face bridge session at King Street that is open to PBC members and also people who are not members of PBC. This will start at 1:30pm, and will finish by 4pm.

 

Each Friday, there will be a session on BBO for people who are SBU members (via PBC or any other way). As from Friday 19 November this will start at 10:15am, which is a change from the previous start time. This will consist of 12 boards, and will be found in the SBU Virtual Club on BBO.

Arrangements for playing at the Club

 

Perth Bridge Club has reopened its doors for real life Bridge. The Covid-19 precautions are described below.

(this section has been revised slightly after the November PBC Board meeting)

Players wishing to play in the face-to-face sessions at King Street need to pre-book. This can be done via the Members Only section on this website or by emailing the club at perthbridgeclub@gmail.com

If you want to play, but don't have a partner, please either use the 'Find a Partner' facility on the website, or email the club at the address above, and we shall try to find you a partner.

 

We have implemented many measures to protect our members from contamination by Covid-19 whilst on our premises. These include:

Pre booking attendance for every session

Restricting table numbers to allow “social distancing”

Mandatory wearing of face masks whilst on the premises

Players to bring their own refreshments

Cashless payment of table fees via swipe credit/debit card

Hand sanitisers in key locations within the Clubhouse

Players should only attend if they are up-to-date with their Covid vaccinations

We have also introduced operational changes to ensure that the boards/bidding boxes and Bridgemates are safe to use. These include:

Duplicating of Boards at least 3 days before use

Players use the same bidding box throughout the session

Bidding boxes not reused for at least 3 days

Bridgemates sanitised prior to each session

The normal movement will be a Mitchell one (where North South remain seated throughout), but a Howell will be used on some occasions when there is a half-table

Only North touches the Bridgemate

Director moves Boards at the end of each round

Mandatory hand sanitisation at the beginning of each round

 

 

We look forward to seeing you “in real life” very soon.
