The EBU operates a National Grading Scheme which runs in tandem with the Master Points system. The NGS scheme now covers the last 2000 boards you have played resulting in a current assessment of your standard of play. The scheme is accessed from the EBU website under NGS & then clicking Nottinghamshire.

Joyce Irving Charity Rose Bowl 2024

Our annual Charity Event, which takes place on Sunday 4th August 2024 @ 2.00pm,

will be in the format of a Duplicate Pairs Competition for the Joyce Irving Charity Rose Bowl

We would like to see as many players as possible for this event, which will be held at the Hallcroft Community Centre, Retford.

The Club will pay all costs, so no match fees will be charged. Refreshments will be provided and we will organise a raffle.

All proceeds will be donated to the Bassetlaw Hospice.

Players will be asked to give a donation to the Hospice – a minimum of  £5 per person is a guideline. Wherever possible we ask that members pay directly to the Hospice: -

Bank : LLOYDS Bank

A/c name: Bassetlaw Hospice of the Good Shepherd Charity no 701876

A/c Number : 42203668

Sort Code: 30-67-76

Please use as reference RBC and your surname so enabling us to see the total donated by RBC members.

In addition, monies will be collected at the event from players who do not wish to pay by bank transfer.

Please let the Secretary know if you intend to play as it helps us to plan the catering.

Face-to-Face Bridge (F2F)

Members are reminded that face-to-face bridge has resumed at Hallcroft on Tuesday evenings, and members are encouraged to consider returning to the traditional way of playing bridge. Sessions will be arranged provided that at least 12 people are willing to play. However, for those that prefer the online experience or who do not yet wish to return to face-to-face play, the Tuesday Realbridge sessions will continue. Both the Realbridge and face-to-face sessions will use the same hands, and the results will be a combination of both sessions. David Garside is the face-to-face contact (01777838791), and anyone that would like to play should contact David.

REALBRIDGE - Tues at 6.55pm. Wed 2pm. Thurs 7.05pm.

Realbridge have advised for those of us who play on an iPad to use SAFARI as their browser. Google chrome may produce some strange results.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT AT LEAST ONE MEMBER OF THE PARTNERSHIP IS LOGGED ON AND SEATED BY 6.50 FOR THE EVENING SESSIONS AND 1.50PM FOR THE AFTERNOON SESSION. This really helps the TD to set the session promptly and avoid last minute changes.

When you log in, enter first name and surname, ID is your EBU number (leave blank if you do not have an EBU number), ignore PW as it is embedded in link, and login.

You are then in the “lobby”. Click on a free seat, your partner can then join you.

Can only get to the lobby once Tournament Director has opened the session about 30 minutes before start.

See below for change in operation.

New click and tap options for bidding and play

  • Double-click (mouse style) emphasises a bid or card when the cursor is moved over it. Two fast clicks are required to play a bid or card.

Retford Bridge Club Annual Subscription

At the beginning of October, Retford Bridge Club invites club members to renew their membership, and payment of the annual membership fee for 2023-2024 is now overdue. Members who have not yet renewed their subscription as asked to do so ASAP. The annual membership fee is £10 and can be gift-aided, which allows the club additional funds to support its ongoing costs, in particular with regard to F2FB.

Table money for F2FB and the session fee for Realbridge are both £1.50. It has been agreed to offer a 50% reduction on all fees for students U26.

We request that, where possible, membership fees are paid through bank transfer, referencing the payment with your surname plus 'Mem', for example: 'ABEL Mem'. Bank payment details are available on the website. Please contact Roger Stock by email (roger.retfordbc@outlook.com) if you wish to make a joint payment of table money and membership fee.

New members should contact Keith Abel (secrbridgec@gmail.com) to request a membership form, which may be returned electronically or in the post.

Keith would be grateful if any member who does not wish to renew their membership could inform him as soon as possible.

REALBRIDGE - PAYMENT

The committee has decided to charge £1.50 per session which covers the cost of UMS (EBU fee), Realbridge and also other fees which the club has to pay for. This fee is in line with that charged by other clubs.

Ideally we would like members to pay in advance by bank transfer to the club's BUSINESS account, “The Retford Bridge Club”,code number 60-17-28, account number 06803946, and we suggest you pay in multiples of £1.50. NB note that the account has a The at the beginning.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU REFERENCE YOUR PAYMENT WITH YOUR NAME, eg RB Sandy Fulton. 

By paying in advance you reduce the work for our treasurer who would otherwise have to invoice you at the end of each month. This is important so that Roger can trace who has paid. Alternatively, contact Roger Stock at roger.retfordbc@outlook.com for others ways to pay or any other committee member. Also email him on that address to let him know you have paid by bank transfer.
