Suspension of ALL bridge @ Hamilton - updated 14 September

Image of Coronavirus Update notice

There is no change to play at the Hamilton Club - all bridge is suspended

Monday 13th September -

The Government made no changes to the lock-down's applying to the country today extending them both till Tuesday 21st next week. Hence suspension of bridge at the Club continues until at least the next update from the government

Thursday 9th September -

As indicated earlier this week the committee met to discuss what conditions are necessary for Bridge to resume at Hamilton.

The result of the meeting was no change to the suspension until at least next week when the government changes to the rules applying at the next lower level of lock-down are released.

Until these are known it is not possible to make an informed decision of what will be required so Hamilton bridge will remain suspended until level 1 or its equivalent level of lock-down is reached

Take care and keep safe

Nigel Gresson, President

Suspension of ALL bridge @ Hamilton - updated 7 September

Image of Coronavirus Update notice

Tuesday 7th September -

All bridge remains currently remains suspended at the Hamilton Club

The change in the rules applying to the current level of Lock-down announced by the government yesterday likely allows for the playing of bridge at this lock-down level. However it certainly doesn't make it easy ( see the government rules here ) for the Club to apply all

The latest update from NZ Bridge helps with the levels / rules that need to be met / apply but some further confirmation is required first. The Clubs Committee will meet Thursday and will provide an indication to the membership as to when bridge will resume.

Take care and keep you and your bubbles safe

Waikato Bays Swiss Pairs @ Hamilton

Image of Coronavirus

The Waikato Bays Regional Swiss Pairs scheduled for September 4th @ the Hamilton Club has been cancelled

The level of Lock-down currently to be imposed next week by the government makes this event impossible to take place

To those who had entered thanks very much for supporting the Club. The Club will be in touch when the Lock-down level again allows us access to our building when we will arrange repayment of entry fees to those who have already paid

Take care

Improvers Lesson with an Irish Theme

The Club was organising the next in Barry's Improver Lessons which along with the lessons incorporated an Irish themed dinner to start our member Hugh McGann off in style playing bridge for the Irish Team in games against other European Countries.
This planning may have all been for nought as one of the world's smallest organisms was able to put all 5 million who call NZ home into lock-down to finish this week off !
So, depending on how the lock-down progresses, this event may be cancelled but if you see our posters out there you now know what they are all about........
