David Stansfield

We are saddened to report that last weekend David Stansfield passed away. David was a member of the Club for over 20 years and at one time, was the Club's Property Officer.

Although not a frequent visitor to the Club in recent years, he was always a welcome participant, cheerful and a pleasure to play with.

David will be missed by his many friends at the Club and our condolences go to his family.

Bridge Etiquette

 

Turn off Mobiles before the tournament starts

Be polite to partner and opponents.

Partner alerts or announces all conventional & artificial calls (BBO you self-alert)

Summarise your system or show your convention card at the start of the round.

Whenever possible make a claim.

Consider others by avoiding slow play.

Do not comment on opponents' bidding or play.

Provide a complete answer to opponents questions.

RealBridge etiquette is the same as F2F; partner alerts or announces conventional & artificial calls.

Most of all, be respectful and polite to the Tournament Director.

 

 

Health and Safety

Due to Coronavirus, the following will apply to all F2F events held in the Club for the foreseeable future:

Face Masks -  Although the wearing of face masks is no longer mandatory, members are welcome to wear face coverings if they wish.

Hand Sanitisers - These will be available on each table and on entry to the Club.

Bridgemates - At the table, only the scorer will handle the Bridgemate handset – showing the score entered to the opponents.

Bidding Boxes - Members are advised to keep the same bidding box when moving from table to table

Bridge Movement - Whenever possible the bridge movement will minimise moving around the Club e.g., Mitchell movement.

Ventilation - Windows and doors will be kept open and so we advise members to sit away from potential draughty areas if they are sensitive to the cold.

Refreshments - Drinks will be available from the serving hatch but we will require members to avoid bunching together and so we will allow time to accommodate this.

Table Money - Payment is taken safely and hygienically using a credit or debit card online or at the Club

Members can bring their own drinks and bidding boxes.
