In 2018, Claygate will start rolling out the wireless scoring system called BridgePal, which runs on smartphones and tablets. The implementation team today consists of Gavin Wilson and Carol Wildig, but more volunteers will be very welcome. We will provide as much help and training as each North needs to enter the scores into the handset.
Further information about BridgePal can be found here.
At the most recent committee meeting, we discussed formally declaring Claygate a Level Two club. There are just two levels defined for clubs by the EBU's Blue Book, and Level Four allows many more complex, artificial conventions. (The Blue Book can be read online at https://www.ebu.co.uk/documents/laws-and-ethics/blue-book/blue-book-2017.pdf .)
My own experience is that everyone currently playing at the club uses only Level Two systems and conventions, and I feel this fits in well with our not insisting on pairs having system cards at the table. The committee could be persuaded to allow the Two Diamond Multi, if any member would like to use that gadget.
Please get in touch, either face-to-face or by emailing email@example.com, if you have an opinion on this matter.
A few Norths have been entering hands as 'Not Played' when what actually happened was that the hand had been passed out. Please use the 'Pass' button to enter this contract; otherwise, you'll get the wrong score for the hand.
We play Duplicate Pairs each Monday, except Bank Holidays.
The club is affiliated to the EBU, so every session attracts Masterpoints for the highest-ranked players on the night.
Play starts at 7.30 pm, but all players must arrive by 7.20 pm.
A session normally consists of 24 boards, and it should be over by 10.30 pm.
Visitors are very welcome.
We always play at Claygate Centre for the Community, Elm Road, Claygate KT10 0EH.
Commonly called the 'Day Centre', its phone number is: 01372 463476 Map
The cost per player, which covers both play and refreshments, is:
£2.00 for members, and £3.00 for visitors.
As the club is approaching its limit of 110 members, we may soon have to introduce a waiting list for membership applications.
