PLAY WITHOUT THE EXPERTS- 9 HIGH PAIRS

Sunday 24th July at Woolavington Village Hall.

 Our first face to face post pandemic event will be specifically aimed at  those players with an NGS rating of 9 and under,.  If you're not sure of your rating you can check it here  https://www.ebu.co.uk/ngs and don't worry if you are not an EBU member. All are welcome to this event.

 This is an opportunity to play in a tournament with those at a similar level and one that specifically excludes the "experts" . We are very much hoping this will be a relaxed event and extra time given for each round and we will try to be as flexible as possible. 

If you have yet to return to face to face bridge for whatever reason this will be an excellent opportunity to gently reacquaint yourself with the game, revive old friendships and make some new. 

This event will be free and will be one session of about 24 boards starting at 1pm and finishing at about 4.30pm. You can enter here.

AGM

It has been decided to postpone the AGM of the SCBA from May until the Autumn in the hope that by then more people will feel confident in travelling to Woolavington for a meeting and bridge. Therefore the meeting will now be held on Sunday September 25th and will be followed by a Swiss Pairs game.

No increase in UM for Somerset clubs

The EBU AGM was held on the 30th November 2021 and the county shareholders voted to increase the UM fee for the forthcoming year (2022/23) to 42p an increase of 2p on the previous figure. The county has previously charged UM of 2p but we have decided not to charge any UM in order to support clubs in the current situation. The effect of this is that UM will remain at 42p for 2022/23.

A reminder  that the SCBA has made restart funds available and this offer is still open. Please contact the Treasurer, Richard Feetenby at rfeetenby@yahoo.com for more information.

The Somerset Barbarians Bridge Club has developed from a collaboration between Ilminster and Crewkerne Bridge Clubs who played online together throughout the pandemic. Although both clubs are now happily playing face to face again several members indicated a wish to continue playing togerther online hence the formation of this new online club which is aimed at the average and not the expert club player.

The Barbarians will play on Wednesday evenings at 7pm starting on October 6th using the BBO platform, 18 board games costing 3BB$, and all those who have played previously with Ilminster/Crewkerne or with Somerset Online are already registered to play. New players from Somerset wishing to play should contact Mike Dobson at jeanneandmikedobson@sky.com

The club has its own website at www.bridgewebs.com/somersetbarbarians which is where you will find the resuts and other information.
