Welcome back to the Larruperz for Bridge
Ross Bridge Club will restart sessions at the Larruperz on Monday 20th September at 7pm and Friday 24th September at 1.30pm. The Monday evening online sessions will be suspended from 20th September onwards (we do not think we have the numbers to run both at the same time).
The committee will keep the coronavirus situation under review and make any changes that we feel are necessary.
In current circumstances, tables will be spaced out and hand sanitiser will be available. If people want to wear face masks they can, but this is a personal choice.
We would like people to bring the exact table money (£3). Players will move their bidding boxes from table to table. Please do not touch other people’s property, for example convention cards. Ask if you want a bid explained.
Gloved hands will be used to set-out the bidding boxes, Bridgemates and scorecards, and to collect the table money.
We ask you not to come if you think you may be infected. As a reminder, the current ranking of symptoms for double vaccinated people is: headache, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat and loss of smell. If people display any of these symptoms, particularly sneezing, they should either stay away or take a test.
If you test positive having recently played at Ross, you should contact the club via Chris Chowney (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Larruperz will be providing tea and coffee as in the past. It is unlikely the bar will be open initially.
If you want to play bridge online, the Herefordshire Clubs Thursday evening sessions at 7pm on BBO will be continuing.
For those of us who have been playing online, it will be a challenge to remember to announce/alert partners bids and generally to get used to playing with real cards!
If you are looking for a partner, you can use the “find a partner” option in the Members Area of the website, or phone Jo Baker as in the past.
