As a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Situation, SBU and Government Guidance, the Committee of the St. Andrews Bridge Club have decided to suspend all play until further notice.
The committee are looking at ways to operate some online bridge organization for the club.Please see details of the initiatives in the news items below.
It is not yet clear when we will be able to meet at the New Club to play bridge again, but provisionally, the start of the 2020-21 Season will be on Tuesday 8th September, when we will hope to hold the delayed AGM, and run a Pairs evening at the club.
Above all the committee hopes you will stay safe and well during the outbreak. We look forward to welcoming you back to bridge at the St. Andrews club as soon as it is safe to do so.
Following the SBU initiative to establish a Virtual Bridge Club on BBO, St. Andrews Bridge Club has become the first Bridge Club in Scotland to successfully host a Pairs evening on BBO as part of a new virtual club.
Every Monday at 6:55pm, St. Andrews Bridge Club will hold a pairs evening on BBO, playing 18 to 22 Boards in a Mitchell or Howell movement for Members and their Guests. Table money will be BB$3. SBU and BBO Masterpoints will be awarded to the top third of the field.
If you have not already joined us, and are unsure how to get started, please contact Howard Greenwell (firstname.lastname@example.org) to help guide you through the process of registering your BBO name and loading your account with some table money.
Registration for the Monday event will start at 4:55pm on the Monday, so you need not make a decision about playing until near the event. The results from each Monday evening event, will be published on this site almost immediately, once BBO makes the results available for download. I can then convert them to the correct format for Bridgewebs, and send the results file to Gordon Milne.
Look forward to welcoming all to the St Andrews Online Virtual Bridge Club.
A St Andrews Bridge Club area on the site has been set up, and all those who have taken out membership can put their names down on that list.
We will continue to run an Intra Club Team of Four and Pairs competitions every few weeks throughout the Coronavirus lockdown. If you are interested in joining, then please let me know.
The cost of playing in the group will be £25 for a 3 month membership of Bridge Club Live (cheaper than table money). There is no payment to St. Andrews Bridge Club.
We have decided to take the month of August as a summer break, and will return in September with more pairs and or team events.
Bridge Club Live can be found at www.bridgeclublive.com.
Should you have any questions regarding Bridge Club Live, and/or wish to join those intrested, then please contact me directly: email@example.com or 01334 473963.
