Rookie Row

The committee has decided to introduce a “Rookie Row” in the Wednesday session starting on Wednesday 4th March at 10am. This will be for a trial period of two months.

To be eligible all players must have fewer than 20 Masterpoints as at 29th February 2020.

Play will start and end at the same time as the main session but the boards will be scored separately. A standby player will be available.

We encourage you to support this initiative.

2018 Graded Pairs

The 2018 Graded Pairs competition will commence Friday 2nd  March.  Every session, played on the 1st Friday of each month until October, will be split into 2 grades, an A Grade and a B Grade. The grade in which a pair will play is to be determined by the combined total of their MP’s.  Players with a combined total of 600 or more MP’s will play in A Grade a while players with a combined total less than 600 MP’s will play in B Grade. The B Grade, although played as one section, will contain a  C Grade section for players with under 150 MP’s.

The winners of all grades will be determined from the best aggregated scores from 6 of the 8 sessions. Substitutes are permissible.  A prize pool for the event will be generated from an entry fee of $5 per player increased by an additional $7.50 per player from the Club.  All money will be returned as prizes.

Entry forms have been posted on the notice board. Entry to the event will be possible up to and including  4th May.
