Bridge Restarting

NZ bridge has advised that Bridge clubs can reopen for play at Lockdown Level 2 if they choose with certain safety standards. Several clubs in our region and many in other parts of the country have re-opened or are preparing to reopen next week

Your committee has discussed the way forward for our club with the decision being made to reopen the club starting this coming Monday of next week - 14 September, with sessions on Monday evening, Tuesday afternoon, Tuesday evening, Thursday evening and Friday morning

Obviously, it is an individual decision whether you wish to play in Level 2 and the committee understands that

At the current Level 2 our safety precautions are the following:
•    If you come to bridge you must be well and have no symptoms of any illness
•   The use of face masks is mandatory. The club has a limited number of disposal ones available
•   The kitchen will be closed
•   You bring your own pen that travels with you
•   Only South will handle the Bridge Mate. East will verbally agree to the score

If we find that insufficient numbers decide to play at the current Level 2, we will close again until Lockdown Level 1

There will be further communication from us on the club website after the next Government announcements

New Life Members

Nominations for Life Membership

The Club Constitution states that recommendations for Life Membership to the Hamilton Bridge Club can only be made by the Committee and must be voted on at the Annual General Meeting. The Committee has adopted a procedure for nominations for Life Membership to the Club. The guidelines for this procedure are available from the Secretary. Any financial member can nominate a member for Life Membership. This nomination must be submitted to the Committee for consideration and, if approved, the recommendation will be made at the Annual General Meeting.
If any member intends to make a nomination for the Committee to consider, obtain a copy of the guidelines and register your interest with the Secretary - this interest will remain confidential and will avoid multiple members researching information regarding the same person.

Covid update

Image of Covid VirusThe Committee has discussed the latest Government announcement leaving us at Level 2 and has made the decision that the club will remain closed for play. We understand members are keen to recommence club play, but with this dreadful virus in and around the Hamilton area, we have concluded the need to be mindful of our member's health is paramount.

The committee does review the status of play at the Club after both Government and NZ Bridge announcements and we will restart regular bridge as soon as conditions and recommendations suggest all is safe to allow bridge to restart

Nominations for the Waikato Bays Regional Committee

Waikato Bays Committee

Meet the Members of the current Waikato Bays Regional Committee

Due to Covid-19 the current Regional Committee was asked by NZ Bridge to continue with the jobs at hand in the region until the end of October 2020. As this date is getting closer, NZ Bridge has now called for the regions to call for nominations for the next committee to cover the next two years.
Our Secretary has the nomination form should you be interested in standing or know of someone worthy of this position on the committee - these forms must be mailed to the Regional Secretary to be received by 30 September
