YBC Closure - A message from the Chairman

Good evening everyone.

It has become clear that Bridge on a Thursday evening is no longer wise  We shall sadly not meet again for the foreseeable future.Our health is so much more important.

Let's look after ourselves and our loved ones and look forward to doing battle again soon.

Keep well and keep in touch.

Best regards,

David

THURSDAY SESSION START TIME

Bridge sessions start at 7.00 p.m. promptly. Members are asked to be seated by 6.55 p.m. thus giving the Scorer a chance to set up the movement.

Your help with this would be most appreciated. Thank you.

ARE YOU AWARE OF THE NEW LAWS(RULES)

New Laws of Duplicate Bridge 2017

The following is an extract from the EBU Website:

The big change that will affect players is the introduction of the new concept in Law 23 of a comparable call:

A call that replaces a withdrawn call is a comparable call, if it:

1. has the same or similar meaning as that attributable to the withdrawn call, or

2. defines a subset of the possible meanings attributable to the withdrawn call, or

3. has the same purpose (e.g. an asking bid or a relay) as that attributable to the

withdrawn call.

There has been some concern that players who volunteer to play as a host may sometimes have their NGS Grading affected by playing with a new partner.

Please click here to read a note from the Chief Tournament Director of the EBU who explains this subject in a little more detail.  NGS.pdf

♠   ♣ 

As you may (or may not) know the EBU NGS scheme went live on 1st March 2012. ( see here:   NGS Scheme )

This scheme aims to provide members with an overview of a players current playing ability rather than the Master Point grade achieved over a players playing career.

For a full explanation of the scheme see here: 

NGS Guide

 

or for an overview see here: NGS-Docs

 

If you just want to check your own grade or someone else's grade go here:

NGS Grades

 

In the Search box enter a Surname followed by a comma then an Initial or First name eg  Smith,A 

 

Most of the displayed fields are self-explanatory but as to the meaning of the grades, you will have to read one of the documents above for an explanation.

 

Hopefully, this short article will have whetted your appetite to go to the EBU website to check out this new Grading System.

Directors

If you are directing, it would be appreciated if you could :

1)     arrive by 6.50 and organise dealing of boards

2)     at the end of the session, remove all score slips (if used) and put boards in the box in numerical order. Also ensure Name Slips have been filled in (if used) and placed with the score slips.

Thank you
