RealBridge – RealBridge are inviting anyone to a free play session on Thursday 30th June at 7.30pm. Twelve pre-set hands will be played, following which Paul Lamford will hold a post-mortem and group discussion, on where things went wrong (perhaps not – you may play like a world champion!!). See Poster. For Format and Joining Instructions see REALBRIDGE – Paul Lamford
Teams Of Eight – The WBU National Club Teams-Of-Eight is being held on Sunday 26th June – 12.00am., in Tumble Hall (near Carmarthen). This is the first major f-to-f WBU event in recent times. We hope that the seven club-teams entered enjoy the event.
WBU Forum – Have your say – the WBU have now introduced a Members’ Forum, whereby you can express your views on anything to do with Bridge or the WBU. See How To Use & Register and then visit the Forum. (Details also on the menu bar or side bar). Y Ddraig goch ddyry cychwyn – The Red Dragon leads the way.
President’s Cup – Please note that the President’s Cup – normally run in conjunction with the Perry and Spickett (July 9th/10th) – has now had to be cancelled.
Llandudno Congress – Face-to-face congresses are back! Join the WBU and NWBA on the North Wales Coast for a competitive (but friendly) weekend of Swiss Pairs Bridge – 2nd to 3rd July. See Poster and Entry Form. Book your accommodation early!
Subscriptions – The WBU would like to remind all members that WBU subsriptions are due from April 1st. The fee has been maintained at pre-pandemic level – £10, (all areas are temporarily suspending their subscriptions). Members can renew via their affiliated Clubs (where permitting) as in previous years, but recognising the practicalities in doing this prior to a return to ‘normal’ Club activity, they can alternatively use the personal online Renewal Form. For more information, please refer to Membership Details. Also for the numerous visitors that our online Clubs have welcomed, we would encourage them to apply for permanent WBU membership via the WBU Application Form (members who joined after Jan 1st will have their membership automatically renewed at no charge). Clubs can also submit a bulk membership renewal on behalf of their members – Bulk Renewals via Club.
Date Change – Due to the clash with the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend the WBU have re-scheduled the AGM, Perry, Spickett, and Presidents Cup to 9th – 10th July – at the Commodore Hotel, Llandrindod Wells. It is intended that the AGM be a hybrid event (Zoom + FtoF).
Also the WBU will be seeking a new Treasurer to be appointed at the AGM – if interested please contact Alan Screen on 01686625744
