BBO Upgrade 12 May 2020

BBO has moved its Casual bridge area operation onto a separate BBO site. When playing Casual bridge with friends, they all need to be on this upgraded version (5.6.0) and you must click the Casual button before setting up your table or inviting to a set game. You will not see players connected to the main BBO site, nor will you be automatically taken to your tournament.

If you are playing in BPS or EBU sessions, remember to be in the Competitive area a few minutes before your tournament is scheduled to start.

Covid 19 Discretionary Grants Scheme

At the instigation of Andrew Petrie and Nick Sutcliffe your treasurer applied to Preston City Council for a grant under the above scheme.

We have been awarded £2,000 a big thank you to Preston City Council

Following the end of this scheme PCC has awarded us a further £1000

Coronavirus 12th March 2020

The trustees have taken the decision to close the club with immediate effect.

We consider that the age profile of the club is such that we are likely to have many members who are amongst the most at risk and we do not know how many of our members have underlying conditions which would enhance that risk.

We believe that we cannot take chances with the health and wellbeing of our members

This game of ours could be custom designed for spreading infection and it is difficult to see how we could safely continue.

As the situation develops we will update our web pages please watch this site for any further news.

Please ignore the calendar for now we may not have altered every entry

Purchasing Tokens

If you wish to purchase tokens before the start of a session please do so at least 10 minutes before the start of a session to avoid delaying play.

Amending Scores

From time to time we are asked to amend scores after the session has finished

We are happy to do this up to 7 days after the session
