HOST SYSTEM


Evening Drives

 

There is a Host System operating for Monday and Wednesday evening sessions and for the Tuesday and Thursday afternoon drives. So even if you do not have a partner you can still come along and be sure of a game on these occasions.

 

The host system does not operate on week 3 Mondays, this being a teams night.

 

If you would be willing to volunteer for a place on the host rota please speak to Jessie Dent (Mondays), Ray Foster (Tuesdays and Thursdays) or Susan Hoyle (Wednesdays) or leave a message for them at the bar.


The Host System will be reactivated soon.

Latest Club News


Update

 

 

This is just to let everyone know that the Club is now fully open, all sessions are running and, although this is only the first week back, we have welcomed numerous members who are are keenly returning to Face to Face bridge.

 

We are so lucky to have a large Clubhouse and the bridge premises are not shared with any other organisation.  That, and the fact that we have three playing rooms all of which can be used if necessary, makes it easy for us to spread out and safely accommodate everyone.

 

WELCOME BACK TO FACE TO FACE BRIDGE


THE CLUB HAS RE-OPENED

 

The Club has now re-opened with all sessions running.

 

WELCOME BACK

 

The first drive was on July 19th when there were five tables. Everyone had a good time and was happy with the playing conditions.  All sessions are now running and we are really looking forward to seeing members back.

 

Just as a reminder about the way that the Club is operating:-

For each session every table has a hand sanitiser and all players are requested to use this at the commencement of each round. E/W pairs retain their bidding boxes for the entire drive. Only the person sitting North is allowed to handle the Bridgemate scoring machine. When a score is entered N should show the players at the table the entry made and upon agreement it is North who confirms the score. At the end of the drive the director will request that every person be responsible for the cleaning of the bidding box they had exclusive use of during the drive. Additionally the director will request that North be responsible for cleaning the Bridgemate. 

 

Tea and coffee is  available.

 

Of course we request that anyone with viral symptoms does not visit the club until they have recovered.

 

Subject to weather conditions, we will keep the room well ventilated. 

 

 


Message from the EBU

The EBU has sent the following message to clubs.

 

The government has delayed the end of Stage 4 of the lockdown by four weeks, but this still means it will be over 2 ½ weeks before the start of our flagship Summer Meeting in Eastbourne, which we are excited to be providing as our first national face-to-face event for about 18 months, subject to any unexpected changes to this revised road-map.

Although government restrictions will have ended entirely by then, we will be working with the venue to put in place arrangements to help minimise any risks, by means of table spacing and one-way traffic where possible. We also expect all players to regularly use anti-bacterial hand gel and to do their best to accommodate any requests from opponents to wear face-masks, which we will provide for those who don’t have their own.

We would welcome members entering for the Summer Meeting as soon as possible so that we can get a sense of numbers for planning. As always, if you later change your mind for any reason, you will be able to get a full refund from us. If you are uncertain about attending, you should make bookings at hotels that allow full refunds on cancellation within a stated time.

Similarly, we would also welcome entries now for the Autumn Congress and the Seniors Congress, both due to take place face-to-face in October. Once you have booked your bridge via MyEBU, contact our partners First for Bridge for their exclusive package deals available at the hotels.
