A Christmas message from the Chair
We have now completed twelve weeks back playing face to face, welcomed many new members and become happily installed in our new premises!  Our three weekly sessions are all well supported and  Sarum now looks forward to continued success in the New Year.  We are always happy to welcome new players of all levels so do get in touch with me if you would like more details. 
 
Our Christmas celebrations will take place on Wednesday 8th December at 7.00pm and Thursday 16th December at 3.00pm. We shall be celebrating with mince pies and mulled wine so please, do join us!
 
I would like to convey my thanks to my wonderful band of committee members who have helped so much to get the club back to face to face playing.  As a committee we have decided that we would like to play our part in the Climate Change debate and ideas will be discussed next year at the AGM.
 
My very best wishes to you all and your families this Christmas tide.

Covid Precautions

For the foreseeable future the following rules have been put in place by the Committee of Sarum Bridge Club. 

  1. We would expect that all our members and visitors have been double [Covid] vaccinated or have had a negative lateral flow or PCR test shortly before attending a bridge session.

  2.  Members are requested not to attend any session if they are displaying any signs of Covid infection. 

  3.  Members will respect social distancing on entering and leaving the building and on moving between tables. Members should bear in mind that they may also be mixing with members of the Cricket club.

  4. Members will be required to sanitize their hands on entering the bridge room. 

  5. The club will ensure the bridge room is well ventilated and members will be advised that extra clothing may be advantageous.

  6. Tables will be used without cloths and will be sanitized at the beginning and end of the evening. 

  7. The wearing of masks is an individual decision, but members are free to use them if they prefer.

Members who choose to attend a bridge session must do so at their own risk and neither the Club nor its Committee accept any responsibility for any consequences of catching the virus.

A list will be put on the noticeboard outside the club room. Sheila will be collecting subs over the next few weeks.

New members or visitors will be allocated numbers for our Bridgemate scoring software at the start of play.

Potential new members are welcome to join us for any session and may play 3 times as visitors, we hope they will then sign up as members.

Club Stewards
During the month of January there will not be a steward on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Thursdays will remain with a steward.

All members are reminded that taking part in the steward rota is part of being a member of Sarum Bridge Club.
 
The new list for February onwards will be on the notice board next week for you to choose a date which suits you.

Please remember that the Find a Partner section will enable you to find a member to play with before the evening’s play. 

 

Best Behaviour at Bridge

A gentle reminder to ensure that every member of our club has an enjoyable evening/afternoon. Even when concentration and pressure take their toll these simple guidelines should be followed:

1.   Greet others in a friendly manner prior to the start of each round.

2.   Be prepared to help new players or players who may not understand bidding sequences you may use.

3.   Give credit when opponents make a good bid or play.

4.   Do not criticise either your partner or opponents at the table.

5.   Ensure that you help make the session an enjoyable time for all - enjoy the company as well as the game!
