Introduction

Welcome to the

Wotton-under-Edge Bridge Club

 

The club meets on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Civic Centre in Wotton-under-Edge to play Duplicate Bridge.  Play starts at 7.15pm.  Please try and arrive by 7:05pm to assist the Director in determining the movement to be played.

 

Guests are always very welcome, and if you don't have a partner we will do our best to try and find one for you.

Members Survey
Members Survey

Thank you to members who have completed the recent survey.  The results are now being analysed and will be discussed by the Committee on 2nd October.  We will share the key findings and actions in early October. 

DIRECTOR'S CORNER

North's Duties

It is primarily North's responsibility to make sure that they are playing the correct boards and have the correct opponents. The Bridgemates will tell you what and who you should be playing. Please check before touching a board. Do NOT assume that the boards on the table are the correct ones, nor that they've been left in the correct order or the correct polarity. Assume nothing - check and verify!

At the end of a round, please make sure that the boards are in the correct order when passed on to the next table or relay. Help to prevent an error at the next table.

East and West are, however, equally culpable if the wrong boards are played - check that North has done his job. Don't assume. Check!

 

Use of the Alert and Stop Cards

Please acquaint yourself with the correct use of the Alert and Stop cards.  Please read the attached documents - Alert and Stop on their correct use.

Slow Play

Slow Play

Our experiment with using a software timer would appear to be working. Since we started using it we have had no significant problems with keeping to the schedule. We must not, however, become complacent.

Please read this article in Mr Bridge, written by Jeremy Dhondy (the EBU Chairman). Also read the page on the Club’s website regarding “Bridge Etiquette”, where some aspects of this topic are discussed.

Our target is to play 24 boards in 3 hours. This equates to 22.5 minutes per round for a three-board movement or 15 minutes per round for a two-board movement. These timings include ALL movements between rounds, making a cup of tea/coffee, visits to the kitchen/loo, etc.

Remember that if you play slowly it affects three other people at your table and four people at every other table.

Finding a Partner

Don't forget that there is a facility on the web-site for finding a partner.  Go to the Membership page and logon.  If you have forgotten your logon password, let me know and I can reset it.

Etiquette and Behaviour - please refer to the appropriate pages on the web-site.
