August 2016

Dear ,

Here is a short news update:

Tablet 'App' Update
The iPad version has been out for a few weeks and is really great! - watch and learn! The Android version is in the finishing stages as I write.

Enter our Special Comps NOW

Timber Trophy and Club/Diamond Knockouts
The Timber Trophy is BCL's premier pairs event of the year and is open to all members. Pairs play a 21-board head-to-head match in the Daily MPs Room every 16 days or so and have to lose TWICE before they are knocked out. The Final takes place at the end of the year. Enter by Sticky Note to SpecialComps (no space) by 7th August. For more details click here.
The Club/Diamond Knockout
is restricted to those members who have club or diamond ratings on 7th August when entries close. 21-board head-to-head matches are played once every 16 days or so in the Daily MPs Room. Enter by Sticky Note to SpecialComps (no space) by 7th August. For more details click here.

Swiss Pairs League 2016C
The third Swiss Pairs League of 2016 starts on 30th August and pairs play one 18-board match every 14 days in the Swiss Pairs Room. Matches are assigned on the Swiss format which means that one is always playing another pair doing equally well or badly as you are! Enter by Sticky Note to SpecialComps (no space) by 22nd August. For more details click here.

Saturday Teams League 2016B
The Saturday Teams Leagues offer the chance to play TEAMS online without the major hassle of 8 members turning up for a casual game because teams and matches are organised by very patient Captains in advance. One 24-board match is played every other Saturday in the Teams of Four Room and the matches can be as serious or as non-competitive as those playing choose to make them. The next League starts on Saturday 27th August. Enter by Sticky Note to SpecialComps (no space) by 20th August. For more details click here.

The 2017 reunion is now open for bookings on the weekend of 7/8/9 April. Full reunion information is updated here with all the relevant links.

Just a quick reminder from our last newsletter announcement, to suggest you take up a totally free membership with Bridge Bandit - www.bridgebandit.com - a complimentary product to all our online games but dedicated to tablets and smart phones. To get it, simply click on the logo below to download the App.

After 15 years with us as your Competitions and  Club Manager, Tony will be retiring at the end of 2016, after yet another full year of his wide range of competitions that cover almost everything for almost everyone! There is nothing one can say more than how dedicated he has been in developing such a range of tournaments and also for running these like clockwork amidst the rough and tumble of the internet.  He will be a hard act to follow, but maybe someone out there is interested in taking up this challenge for 2017? - if so, let me know and we can discuss the role.

He still has some tournaments to complete by the end of the year and I know you will continue to support him in this - and of course, he will continue to play on BCL in his retirement - so watch out!
Our best wishes to all of you enjoying the summer,



Nick Justice    

Managing Director
