New guidleines in place to help us stay healthy and safe.

  • Covid vaccination certificate: either paper or on your phone - every time you come to play. If you don't have it you won't be admitted to the centre. Sorry, no exceptions to this.
  • Own bidding box: if you don't already have one they will be available for purchase in the centre at a cost of 8 Euros.
  • Masks: must be worn while entering and moving about in the building, including changing tables and going to the toilet – but not when seated.
  • Own hand sanitiser: for cleaning your hands between boards.
  • Table money: will be 5 Euros - exact paper money please. 
  • Refreshments: Please bring your own beverage with you as there will not be any tea/coffee break.
  • New Bridge ID (NBID): You will need to know your New Bridge ID (NBID) number issued by the CBAI as this will be used to for the Bridgemates. Your Greystones bridge number no longer works on the bridgemates.  The (NBID) is on your CBAI membership card and will be listed on the Sugarloaf notice board in the Bridge Centre.
  • Open tournaments For the month of November, our tournaments will be open to all members of Greystones Bridge Centre. There will be a limit of 15 tables under current government guidelines. 
  • Standby available A committee member will act as standby for the first 6 weeks, but we will be asking members to act as standby as soon as this is practical.
  • Arrive early: Bridge will start at 7.30pm - plan to arrive a little earlier than usual to allow time for potential start-up hiccups.

 

If you have not paid your annual subscription please plan on doing so on the night.

 

Covid 19 : Check into this website for updates

The Board of Directors are very pleased to say that our Bridge Centre has now been open for five weeks in person bridge - thanks to the hard work of our club Presidents and committees - but also thanks to the members of our Centre observing all the necessary Covid protocols.

 

Errigal Bridge Club are delighted to announce that their club will reopen tomorrow night Friday 22nd October 2021 at 7.30pm. They will welcome all annual, honorary and life members of the Centre to play with them on Friday nights. 

 

Terry Brennan is resuming her Friday morning Bridge tomorrow Friday 22nd October 2021 at 10 am.

Following the Government announcements this week, the Bridge Centre will be continuing with the protocols which are already in place. 

1. Covid certificates will be checked every time you come to the Centre - this is because due to GDPR we cannot keep a list of who has a certificate. We do not need to take your phone number as the list of members will be on the results sheets after every session.   

2. Masks MUST be worn every time you stand on your feet! And that does mean putting it on correctly, not holding it up over your face. You may remove your mask when you are seated at a table behind the screen.

3. Please continue to bring your own personal sanitiser and bidding box.

4. Tea/Coffee will not be available at the moment - please bring bottles of water or sealed coffee mugs - NO disposable coffee cups with loose lids. 

 

Sugarloaf Bridge Club will be reopening at some later date to be confirmed, in the interim BBO bridge will continue to be available on Tuesday nights at 7.30pm 

 

We hope that you are all keeping well and enjoying these bright crisp days.

 

Kind regards,
Bernadette Coggins
Chairperson
Greystones Bridge Centre
