Carol Wildig (Team Leader)
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.
A psyche — short for 'psychic bid' — is a deliberate and gross mis-statement of honour strength and/or suit length.
A psychic bid is a legitimate ploy as long as it contains the same element of surprise for the psycher’s partner as it does for the opponents.
A deviation is a deliberate but minor mis-statement of honour strength and/or suit length.
A partnership’s actions on one board may be sufficient for the director to find that it has an concealed partnership understanding (CPU) and the score will be adjusted in principle. This is classified as a red psyche.
Most members do not psyche at all. The club committee believes that the general membership wants to know which players may make bids that cannot be relied upon. Directors need to know, from the trend of recorded incidents, where there may be concealed partnership understandings.
