Match vs Stroud BC
We have been invited to a match against Stroud BC on Thursday 17th October, away at Stroud.
Please let Gavin Bailey know if you are interested in playing in the match.
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.
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.

This year's winner, Margaret Robson, being presented with the Natalie Plate by last year's winner Robert Whitfield.
Well done Margaret.
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.
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.
You can read an article in this week's Gazette and previous articles, on the NewsPage.
