Wednesday 5A 3-Nighter

Although there was an urban myth floating around that our popular 5A Swiss Pairs was being scored using cross-IMPs it has not been so. We really meant it to be but, due to a slight misunderstanding about how to set up our scoring program, the first four of six rounds have been scored using Butler. There was a brief period after the fourth round when the results were published after re-scoring with cross-IMPs but it was decided to revert to the Butler for the sake of continuity. Apologies to anyone whose feathers feel ruffled by this situation.

Waikato Area Pairs - final heat

This Sunday the final heat of the Waikato Area Pairs will be held at the Hamilton Bridge Club.

The event is a walk-in ... you don't need to register just turn up by 9.45 with your lunch, a partner and $10 to participate.

The 2020 WAP is a different beast - due to COVID we will have run just 3 heats and the overall winner will be decided by the best 2/3 scores (and while a sub is allowed - the two scores that count must be played with the same partnership).

The field is still wide open and you can see who is in contention via the following league ladder:

https://www.waikatobays.bridge-club.org/bcorg/results/showMultiResult?id...

Remember there are also A points up for grabs and prizes for the top non-open players in the field.

As is traditional we will also finish with some refreshments and nibbles (but don't expect the full pizza spread this year) as well as run the AGM at lunchtime.

If you have any suggestions/topics for discussion please send them to Anna (anna_kalma@hotmail.com) . As this is the last year Anna is managing the WAPs any nominations/volunteers to take over the event would also be appreciated.

NZ Congress 2020 - updated


Stop
URGENT MESSAGE - National Congress 2020

On Thursday 25 June the Management of the Distinction Hotel Hamilton advised New Zealand Bridge that they would not be honouring our booking for the 2020 National Congress. The venue is to be used as a quarantine facility for returning Kiwis until at least January 2021.

We will over the next 10 days look at options to relocate the Congress. This if at all possible, may be at a different time, and is likely not be in Hamilton.

At this point we ask that you hold off making any travel and accommodation bookings. Please don’t make any online entries or payments.

We are exceedingly disappointed with this situation and will do our absolute best to find a workable alternative for 2020.

Alister Stuck
National Secretary, New Zealand Bridge

Cashless Bridge - updated

The cashless system - Compa$$

Thank you to all the members who have paid in advance for their table money, either to the Directors or online - one member who shall remain nameless is expecting good things from his bridge this year and deposited $150. Thanks also to our Directors who received this small mountain. The good news is, they will not need to collect any more.

The amounts received are being credited to your Compass$$ accounts this week. We will be sending out an email after the end of the month when all the money received and session deductions made so far are detailed on your account. Please check it and let us know of any anomalies - being a new system, there is sure to be a couple. We are joining several bridge clubs in the Waikato region who are benefiting from this excellent addition to our existing scoring package. Please keep in mind that many hours have been spent setting up this system by club members giving up their leisure time plus the many many hours author Bob Fearn spent writing this innovative programme as well as the support he gives us with both Compass and Compass$$.
Any teething issues we are experiencing are due to Dave and myself learning to understand the process of implementing this new programme, introduced in order to improve the club's procedures and members' enjoyment.

As a reminder, all you need to do in the future is to transfer an amount to the club's bank account - 01 0315 0381282 01 - or pay to Donna during office hours.

      We have tears on the Bridge Zone today, Master Jones is huffing and puffing, very unfit and lateness is a
      poor excuse for running

      We’re back to the Clubs and things are a little different

      The Electronic Movement is making itself know – some Bridge Clubs and The Co-operative Bank are reducing
      their footprint on legal tender

      Looking to implement vouchers, electronic payment for table money, Auckland and Hamilton reviewing programmes
      to deduct from the Bridge Mates etc – some Clubs are already there

      Hamilton Bridge Club is making available Breakfast before Bridge on Friday morning

      What a nice idea….
