You will, I hope, be pleased to hear that Summertown BC is planning a partial return to face-to-face bridge on a trial basis.
Here is our plan:
Monday 11th July at 6.45 for 7.30. A welcome back party with drinks & nibbles at 6.45 at Maison Francaise, followed by a normal evening's duplicate bridge at 7.30. All welcome including non-members and free of charge! There will be a host, so don't worry if you have no partner.
Monday 25th July, Monday 8th and Monday 22nd August (second and fourth Mondays in July and August when we have been playing RealBridge) at 7.30 pm - face-to-face duplicate bridge, and we hope to provide the usual refreshments: coffee/tea and biscuits. For these evenings, you must register online and pay in advance. Please register and come along even if you have no partner as there will be a host. (If registering and paying online is a problem for you, please let Erica know). Here is the link to the registration/payment page:
You must register before 4pm on the day you plan to play. If we have fewer than three tables we will cancel, so please check your emails before setting off for the club.
The timing of the face-to-face bridge sessions will be 7.30 as before. This is because Maison Francaise cannot allow us access before 7 pm during term time.
On the intervening Mondays we will continue to play online (on BBO). To check what is happening on which day, look at the website.
We ask you to use common sense with regard to Covid. Please do not attend if you have any signs of a cold or Covid. Please bring your own supply of hand gel and wear a mask if you would prefer to. We will space the tables out and provide good ventilation.
Please come along and support us and bring your friends!
Depending on the success of these four evenings and of course on any adverse change in the state of the pandemic and relevant Government advice, we will decide on the way forward for September onwards.
Erica and all the SBC Committee
