We are pleased to let you know that playing bridge at the club rooms, in person, will be resuming next week beginning on Monday 15 June.
To reiterate the main guidelines:
*All sessions will be open as per the programme booklet, with events shortened to accommodate the start date. For example, a 4 day pairs will become a 3 day event if the first session has been cancelled.
*Scorer and director rosters are as previously determined.
*Be assured that there will be an ample supply of hand sanitiser and players will be required to use this at the beginning of the session, when getting refreshments, when leaving, and any other time you feel is necessary.
*The cards and boards will only be used once a week and the bridgemates will be cleaned between sessions.
*Tea and coffee will also be available.
*Contact tracing will occur via the session record.
Again, we ask that if you are unwell or with symptoms PLEASE STAY AT HOME. Also, if you feel uncomfortable or compromised about physically being at the club, then we look forward to seeing you at a later date. Do check your programme booklets to see who your partner is and get in touch with them to confirm they will be playing. If not, contact the session partnership steward.
Just a reminder that session start times are as follows and you should be seated (with sanitised hands) 15 minutes before play begins: Monday 1:30pm, Wednesday 6:30pm, Thursday 7.00pm, and Friday 1.00pm.
We also wish to advise that unfortunately we have had to cancel our 5A Open Pairs Tournament which was scheduled for 13 June. All going well however, we will be running our Ib Thulin Tournament (Rotorua members only) on 16 August, and the Rotorua Restricted on 12 September 2020.
We look forward to seeing you at Bridge next week!
