Well done Bert!

Wheelchair (just in case), but not needed.


vvTable Etiquette – a few important items which often need a reminder: 


* If there is any infringement at your table the Director should be called – do not make your own decisions – do not disagree with the Director – the Director’s decision is final.

*  When dummy, keep your hands off the table until declarer has called for a card, nor should you indicate which card you think should be played!

* Make beginners welcome – new players are the future of the game we love.

* When claiming game you must state your line of play clearly – less experienced players may not see it as clearly. Sometimes better to play it out.

* Do not hold up play by filling in Personal Scorers, especially when you are on lead!                            

*  At the end of each session, empty bins and set up table for next session.
