The EBU is unable to hold their usual Summer Meeting as Eastbourne this year as the venue there is undergoing extensive refurbishment. Instead there will be a Summer Festival centred aound 2 large weekend events in London, 2 weeks apart. In between, there are to be several mid-week evening events which are offered at several venues around the country, scored together to give a national ranking. The G.C.H.Fox Championship Pairs on Tuesday 7th August at 7:15 pm and the Mixed Pivot Teams on Wednesday 15th August at 7:15 pm are available to play at Bristol Bridge Club. Players in the South-West of the country therefore have a chance to play in these national events without having to stray too far from home.
The entry fee for both competitions is £7 per player. Of this £7, the EBU gets £3. They provide the back up support and publicity, the deal files so that all venues have the same hands, Blue points at the national rate and the prizes including stratified prizes based on players’ national ranking. The club gets the other £4 for providing the venue, dealing the boards, and paying the tournament director who is Philip Green, an EBU Congress director.
