Return to club bridge FRIDAY 10th SEPTEMBER
Return to club bridge FRIDAY 10th SEPTEMBER


We are pleased to say that Taunton Bridge Club will be reopening for face to face bridge at the Catholic Centre on Friday 10th September. 

We have chosen to resume initially on Fridays as members who expressed a preference chose Friday by a margin of almost 2 to 1.   However we will hopefully be able to begin on Wednesday evenings again in the near future. 

If you are able to do so, please arrive at 6.40pm to help set up the room, but at the latest by  6.50pm, to allow the scorer and director time to set up the movement.  That allows for a prompt start to play at 7pm.

We look forward to seeing you all again in person soon.


Covid security:  We would request members playing to:

 Have had both Covid injections

 May wear a mask if they wish

 Bring their own hand sanitizer if possible and use it at each table. (The club will provide spares if necessary)

 Bring their own refreshments to be consumed at the table during the break at half time 

 Be prepared for the fact that the windows will be open to allow for good ventilation – you may need to wear a coat

 Carry their own bidding box with them when they move tables

 Bring the correct table money to place in the bag – no change will be given

Bring their own cushions if needed, there will be no communal cushions available

Tablecloths will not be used, to make the cleaning of tables easier.

Taunton Bridge Club AGM

Lesley has kindly reminded me that the AGM of Taunton Bridge Club is invariably held in the month of November.

As you know the current COVID-19 regulations prevent gatherings in person and it seems unlikely that we would obtain a quorum (20% of members) for a meeting held via zoom.

I have now contacted each member of our existing committee, all of whom have kindly agreed to continue in office until such time as we are able to to hold the next AGM with members able to attend in person.

Your Committee's April committee minutes are now available for you to read in 'Minutes Archive' in the Main Menu. Use your own password to gain access.


Want to easily get up to date with your NGS grade? Our club members' NGS grades can now be found in Main Menu NGS. No password required as all NGS information is on public view in the EBU website. This will  be updated automatically by the EBU each month. However, every time one plays the NGS % changes, and to search this out you simply click on the open page - now turned green! - and you will simply get straight through to the EBU's NGS site and view as usual!  If someone's name is missing from our club list it means he/she is no longer a member or........they have chosen to make their NGS grade private which all EBU members are entitled to do.  Enjoy browsing!


If we are unlucky and are unable to find a Spare Partner, don't forget there has always been the facility in The Member's Area to 'Find a Partner'. Use your own password to gain access, and click on 'Find a Partner' near the top left hand corner, click again on PR (partner required), type in your name and press Confirm. Your name will then appear in the Main Calendar and on the small calendar near Results at the bottom right side of the Home Page. You can also opt to show your email or telephone number, which will only appear when you 'tick', or if you prefer not to do that, we all have the club card with members' telephone numbers. Hopefully someone else without a partner will contact you! So....keep an eye on our website! This system may be used for any clubnight, including Competition nights when we don't provide an official Spare Partner. Worth a try. Let us know how you get on.
