Things to bear in mind

Just a few things to keep in mind at the bridge table.

Firstly, please give the Director your attention and DON'T remove cards from the holder until you are given the go ahead.

Please leave bidding cards on the table until the first lead is made.

Don't argue with your opposition - call the Director - they need to keep in practice.

If the Director is called and makes a ruling with which you disagree, don't argue. Please remember they are volunteers and human so can make a mistake - and you have the right to appeal. This must be done via the Director who will refer it to the Appeals Committee.

Cold, 'flu & Covid symptoms
Cold, 'flu & Covid symptoms

As cold and 'flu season is here again,
 Covid and a range of viruses continue to circulate in the community.
We ask all members to be aware of any symptoms
- especially fever, coughing and sneezing.

Given that we would all like to remain well and,
bearing in mind the age and compromised health of some players,
it is only courteous that you refrain from visiting the club
if you are at all unwell.
