Club Update


Once  the local infection rate is low and  local regulations allow we hope to be able to re-open. We will review the situation as soon as is practicable to assess whether we can fully implement the advice contained in the Risk Assessment plan recently circulated by the EBU and will only reopen if we feel confident that we can fulfil the One Metre plus mitigation stipulations and have suitable measures in place to safeguard members as far as is possible.

If we decide to reopen guidelines will be published regarding the ‘new normal’ for attendance at club drives.

The Committee undertook to review the issue of subscription rebate/refund and decided that any action would be deferred  until next year and any consideration would be accounted for in next year’s subscription.

We hope every one is fit and well and look forward to seeing you all (hopefully) sometime in the Autumn.

Club Re-opening Update


"The club Committee met today (15/7) to discuss Covid-19 and the prospects for reopening the club. We believe that there is a possibility of reopening in early September if the local infection rate remains low. We will be meeting again on 19 August to review the situation again and to assess whether we can fully implement the advice contained in the Risk Assessment plan recently circulated by the EBU. We will only reopen if we feel confident that we can fulfil the One Metre plus mitigation stipulations and have suitable measures in place to safeguard members as far as is possible.

If we decide to reopen guidelines will be published regarding the ‘new normal’ for attendance at club drives.

The Committee undertook to review the issue of subscription rebate/refund and decided that any action would be deferred  until next year and any consideration would be accounted for in next year’s subscription.

I do hope every one is fit and well and look forward to seeing you all i(hopefully) in the Autumn.

Mark Armitage, Club Chairman"

Online Bridge


We hope that everyone is well and managing to cope in these difficult times.

 

No doubt you will all be missing your bridge sessions and seeing friends at the Club  but there are other ways of keeping up with the game.  Quite a few of our members are playing bridge online or watching the excellent seminars that are being broadcast.

 

There are various websites where you can play online and the EBU have a detailed description of these and explain  how you can do this with your usual partner or with friends  at  https://www.ebu.co.uk/node/3736     All these online websites are very similar and all are excellent.  As an example of what you can do the  EBU link below describes how to register on just one of the sites and how to set up a table where four friends can play     http://www.ebu.co.uk/ebuscore-wiki/bboinstructions.

 

Of the seminars Jack Stocken has  just developed a paid subscription daily Bridgecast using Bridgebase Online  to go through an instructive Intermediate or Advanced hand (or both) with a video commentary.  See https://yorkshirebridge.co.uk/jacks-daily-bridgecast/     

 

Andrew Robson also offers something similar at

  https://www.andrewrobson.co.uk     

 

Those of you who have been on the Mr Bridge cruises will know Bernard Magee.  Bernard Magee is streaming free live bridge seminars on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11.00am on YouTube. You can watch live and ask questions or comment during the event or catch up on past seminars.  Go to  https://mrbridge.co.uk/  and scroll down to Live Seminars

 

We hope that we’ll all be playing bridge at the Club soon – but in the meantime enjoy what you can do online and keep safe and well.
