BORING...BUT 'IMPOIRTANT'
BORING...BUT 'IMPOIRTANT'

All bridge players who are members of an affiliated club have their own EBU page - which may come as a surprise to some.

'My EBU' is a place where, if you are so minded, you can check your masterpoints and NGS records, book events, modify your account details and carry out other bits of bridgey administration.

"It is important that members can access the My EBU area," says the EBU, "and we are aware that some cannot, either because we do not have the right email address, or it is blank. We would like to encourage you to contact your members to make sure they can access My EBU"

So that's what we are doing. To access your EBU page click on MY EBU.

WAR CRISIS DONATION BY CLUB

Club to give £1,000 towards Ukraine relief

A number of members have suggested the club should contribute to the Ukraine relief effort being organised in this country.

As a result, the club committee has agreed to forward £1,000 to the humanitarian appeal. With gift aid, the donation should reach £1,250.

Also, if possible, the committee would like to organise an event to help further. Ideas as to the best way to proceed would be welcomed from any member.

THAT'S THE WAY TO DO IT...

Champion Susan celebrates with a remarkable score of 82%

The EBU produces an EBU Masterpoint annual leaderboard every year and the latest list published this week includes club champions up and down the country. 

The Stansfield club champion is Susan Nisbett who finished just ahead of John Bloomfield and David Unwin.

And to emphasise her status as a consistently good player at the club she recorded a score of 82% when partnering Jackie Chester on Thursday - almost certainly the highestd score in the club's 15 year history.

2021 STANSFIELD HANDICAP PAIRS

Caelia & Marcus first. 

The rest nowhere!

The Stansfield Handicap Pairs, billed as an event where everyone has an equal chance of success, proved to be a one horse race at the weekend.

Caelia Chandler & Marcus Hopkins showed a clean pair of heels to a hybrid field consisting of 7 tables playing online via RealBridge and 5 tables meeting Face2Face in Stansfield village hall.

In theory, handicap events should result in close finishes because the difference in ability between different pairs is supposedly negated by the handicap. In practice, Caelia & Marcus (pictured above with club chairman Richard Evans) grabbed an early lead and ended up winning by 10% overall and by 8 % in the Handicap.

Runners up in the Handicap were Christine & Sekhar, with Angela & Jaques in third and last year's winners, Pam & Heather in fourth spot.

All the results are available in the left hand column below the menu, including separate scores for the F2F and RealBridge sections. Click on the Handicap tab to see the Handicap results.
