31st October - Andrew Robson Seminar at Stone
If you know of any member of the club who is unwell please let either Pat Martin or a member of the committee know so that appropriate wishes can be sent on behalf of all members.
The quickest response will be to tell either Pat Martin or any member of the committee at the bridge session then a card can be signed & posted immediately. Alternatively, you can email the secretary.
Please keep your contact details, including email address, up to date. If you do not need a printed version of English Bridge magazine please opt out to help reduce costs and waste. Go to www.ebu.co.uk/members/v2/, log-in and click 'my details' under the "account tab" (extreme right) to update your details and preferences'. Please note that by May 2020 you will need to set 'opt in' in 'my details' to continue to recieve a diary. The default value for all members has been reset to exclude the diary as of August 2019.
The minutes of EBU Board meetings are posted on the EBU website. When minutes are approved at a meeting they are moved in to the archive, accessed further down the page.
The Laws of Duplicate Bridge 2017 is now available for purchase. The new law must be introduced by the end of September but the intention is to use them at EBU events from the start of August to coincide with the annual updates to the Blue Book and White Book. See page 44 of the August 2017 edition of English Bridge. Click this link for more information http://www.ebu.co.uk/laws-and-ethics/new-laws-2017 but note the "erratum"! See also David's notes on the subject.
The EBU's shop has undergone a rebranding and is now called the Bridge Warehouse.

The EBU magazine, English Bridge, can be read on line if you do not receive a paper copy. There is also an extra section (not updated since 12/17) for news only available on-line. After the December 2017 edition the latest County news will no longer appear either in print or on-line.
On August 1st 2013 changes were made to the EBU Announcing and Alerting rules. There is a copy of the new rules on the club notice board. There is also a notice on the board regarding permitted agreements (level 4 amplified) that are now the SBC standard.
The charity English Bridge Education & Development (EBED), set up in 2014, now manages educational programmes and support for teachers, and also provides Tournament Director training for Clubs and Counties. Please check their web site for information on TD and Club Teacher training courses.
