I am pleased to advise Royston club members that starting on Thursday 11th June at 7 p.m.  there will be a new weekly Virtual Club event available to them on BBO, hosted with the generous support and assistance of Hitchin Bridge Club. These events will continue on the same day and time each week for the foreseeable future, or until normal face-to-face club bridge can be resumed.

This event will be called the North Herts Area Clubs Hospice Pairs, and is open to members of all local clubs. Each game will consist of 18 boards and will cost BB$4 per person, to be purchased in advance from the BBO website. Results will appear on the club’s website in the usual way.

The profits from this event will go to the Garden House Hospice in Letchworth. ..........

A quick reminder about BBO — anyone who wants to play bridge on BBO can do so for free, and it's the preferred platform for EBU tournaments, friendly casual bridge and a lot more. I know that online bridge is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you are thinking of giving it a try, there's plenty of help available.

The Berwick Bridge Club guide and accompanying YouTube videos come strongly recommended for those new to online bridge. ..........

Can it only be a few days since the club announced it was to be closed "for the duration"?

Inevitably, almost every other bridge club in Herts has also announced they will be closing. In the meantime, there has been plenty of activity on the online bridge front. ..........
