Dear ,

 
NeXtGen Ver 1.08
Further development following feedback from the initial release is addressing all the functional and cosmetic issues as rapidly as we can. We've already made huge progress on this, so, see our version page for full details. Key functional additions include the ability to use standard message, send adverts, accept invites, set as a partner and setup DoNotDisturb.
  
Please continue to give us your feedback here even if you have done so before, as updated reviews are very helpful to see we are progressing in the right direction!

For those who wish to continue with the Java desktop version, then there is no obligation to change as yet, but the clock is ticking on the very existence of Java itself, and this is rapidly running out - hence the very existence of NeXtGen to take away the reliance on Java. We no longer support any upgrades to any of our Tablet or Java desktop versions.
 
Reunion 2019 - Italy, nr Venice, Lido di Jesolo, May 2nd-May 6th
Booking is open now from today - but hurry to secure the option of your choice! Full details via our Web site or click here. Online booking of this Reunion is also available.

Our new partners, Arena Travel can book your flights and make it into a total package if you like - the sooner you grab those flights the cheaper it will be. At the time we secured this deal, you could fly from the UK to Venice return, cheaper than a standard rail fare Manchester to London - but I don't have to tell you this obvious advice!

There are limits on the numbers at each of the hotels, so as before, first come, first served - but as it is exactly what most of you gave as feedback for a destination, I am sure this will be a sell out!
 

Subscription Changes
As previously announced, our price list has been updated and now in effect, the main change being a small increase in the standard annual subscription, and a small decrease in the annual social membership plus some simplification of the range of subscriptions. Remember, we provide new alternatives for payments using your direct bank transfer if you find this easier, and this is available in 4 major currencies.

EBU members will continue to have their Pay2Play fees included in the standard annual and 3-year subscriptions, but as from September 1st, any discounted subscriptions will be charged the EBU Pay2Play fees in arrears, and invoiced annually in January. After 3 years of subsidising this totally, it is not unreasonable that we can no longer carry this extra cost. The responsibility to check your EBU membership status with us is therefore yours and must be done before September 1st.

Hand of the Month
Don't forget, the hand of the month competition. Click here.

New Website
The arrangement of the new website is now settling down and all your important links are available on the home page. All urgent news is in the News Flash and a short list of current bridge events is also clearly outlined and maintained by Malcolm, our competitions manager. If you have any suggestions for the top 10 fast links, that are not already there, then please let me know.

Enjoy the summer while it lasts!
