I hope everyone is staying safe and sane through these difficult times. Following the latest Government advice on Tier Systems it seems that it could be some while before we can all be together again. We will therefore be continuing our Thursday evening F2F sessions on BCL.
In the last few weeks some pairs have unfortunately been unable to get a game with us on Thursday evenings. Bassingham Bridge Club have asked a group of people to volunteer to be the ‘sit out pair’ each Thursday evening. The ‘sit out pair’ will only enter the Bridge Room if it looks as if one pair is sat on their own and unlikely to get any opposition. We would ask all members to help this system work efficiently by doing the following:
1 Each pair should try to be in the Lobby by 6.40 pm (The Lobby opens at 6.30 pm)
2 Set your partner. (Click on their name and their profile will appear and you can click on ‘Set as Partner’)
3 At 6.45 pm the Bassingham Bridge Room will open. One of you should enter the room and Enter the Tournament. This will take you to a table.
4 Your partner should now enter and see which table you are sat at. They should click on the spare seat opposite you.
5 The Server will ask one of you to submit an SSD to your partner and they should confirm/accept. All this should be completed by 6.50 pm
At 6.52 pm the volunteer ‘sit out pair’ will enter the Room. They will check the tables and if any pair is sat at a table on their own at this point they will enter the tournament.
N B Remember to keep clicking Refresh to update the site.
If we can get into the habit of following this procedure, hopefully it will lessen the prospect of any pair being ejected from the site and not being able to play on that evening.
