CLUB RE-OPENING

 

BRADFORD BRIDGE CLUB INTENDS TO REOPEN ON MONDAY 19 JULY 2021

 

                       

Following the postponement of lockdown easing the club is now gearing up for reopening on MONDAY 19 JULY

 

The event on 19 July will be a Pairs drive (it will NOT be a teams event on this first evening back). There will also be a resumption of the TUESDAY afternoon drive the following day, 20 July. The WEDNESDAY evening and THURSDAY evening  drives will resume on 21 and 22 June respectively.

 

The specific protocols we will need to follow may be dictated by some retention of restrictions beyond 19 July but we aim to return to as near a ‘normal’ state as possible.

 

Therefore when we return every table will have a hand sanitiser and all players will be requested to use this at the commencement of each round. E/W pairs will retain their bidding boxes for the entire drive. Only the person sitting North will be allowed to handle the Bridgemate scoring machine. When a score has been entered N should show the players at the table the entry made and upon agreement it will be 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 will be available.

 

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

 

Subject to weather conditions the room will be 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.
