A letter received recently from Mr. Rodney O'Hara President of DNR

In his message he wishes us all well during these challenging times

Letter from President DNR


Rodney refers to two Bridge related platforms, links to which I have provided below:

No Fear Bridge


These sites will provide you with challenging games, during these never before experienced times

They are packed with online learning activites for Beginners, Improvers and Advancers

Disregard for the present

Are you aware that there are new updates to the current laws, governing the game of Bridge?
These have been implemented by the World Bridge Federation (WBF) since 1st September 2017

The link below details the updates - just give it a click

♠            ♣     

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

GDPR and how does it affect me at SABC

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU regulation which came into effect on 25 May 2018.

GDPR updates existing data protection laws and places greater accountability and transparency obligations on organisations, when using a member's personal information. 

It gives the individual greater control over their personal information.

Important Notice

The CBAI have circulated a renewal Membership Form for each Bridge Player in Ireland to complete and these will be distributed to all Members.
This form will give both the CBAI & SABC permission to use your data (i.e. the personal details you put into the form) to contact you, should the need arise and to manage your Master Points and Grade.

Without the completion of this form, your membership cannot be recognised

For further information, please contact the Club Secretary, at:
