June 21 & 22 - Calling all Directors
New Zealand Bridge in association with the Australian Directors Association
presents the ABDA Interactive Workshop for New Zealand Directors at the Wellington Bridge Club, commencing at 10am both days 21st & 22nd June, 2014. This is an opportunity not to be missed. Download the flyer and advise Allan Joseph if you wish to attend.
Download Club Sessions to Your Own Calendar
We have now implemented a facility to enable members to download to their personal calendar (eg on smartphone, tablet or desktop PC) all the club events for a particular night.
You will find the instructions after the bridge calendar. Read these carefully before you start, as the instructions are different for different calendar types.
This year the club will again be selling the very popular Entertainment Books. We receive a small sum from every book sold on behalf of the club and we have allocated these funds to building maintenance (boring but necessary). You can order your Entertainment Book here, and please pass the link on to any family or friends who are interested so the club gets credited with these sales too.
NZ Bridge System Card
From 24 September 2013, the new NZ Bridge system card, with at least the two outer pages completed, has been required at all "A" point tournaments.
From 24 February 2014, this will now be required at all tournaments run under the auspices of NZ Bridge. The use of any other system card except the ABF Standard System Card will not be permitted.
You can download a PDF copy of the NZ Bridge System card here. This page also contains instructions for electronically updating the card using Adobe XI.
The first set of lessons for the year are now underway. The lessons will be repeated about mid-year. Go to our lesson registration page for more information or to express an interest.
