Returning to Bridge in the Club Rooms

The ACT Government requires businesses to have a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan in order to recommence activities.

The Committee has written CBC’s Safety Plan in order to ensure face-to-face bridge sessions are as safe as possible for everyone.

That said, it is not possible to play bridge in the clubrooms in a way that completely removes all COVID-19 risks. The Committee understands that some members will not want to play face-to-face bridge at this time given their personal situation and health issues. We urge all members to consider their own circumstances and decide what is best for them.

Have you read the latest versions of the CBC COVID-19 Safety Plan and Checklist for Members?

  • COVID-19 Safety Plan - Updated 23 September 2020
  • Playing at the Club Checklist for Members - Updated 23 September 2020
  • We have been advised by ACT Health that at this stage, temperature checks on entry are not required. Following this advice, we have ammened our current Safety Plan and proceedures to not require it at this time.

Please remember that "mingling" - unnecessary interactions between individuals - is forbidden due to problems with the spread of Covid. It is therefore critical that players do not move between rounds until told to do so by the director

Red Masterpoint sessions at the Clubrooms

The tournament committee has decided to conduct a number of Red Masterpoint sessions at the clubrooms over the next three month period.

For the months of September to November, each face-to-face session will have one red pointed session per month. Red points will be awarded on:

  • Monday Morning                    4th Monday of the month  - 26 October
  • Monday Evening                    4th Monday of the month  - 26 October
  • Tuesday Afternoon                 1st Tuesday of the month  - 6 October
  • Wednesday morning               2nd Wednesday of the month  - October: Olive Lott Pairs - 7, 14 & 21st October 2020
  • Friday afternoon                     3rd Friday of the month  - 16 October

In the month of October, an additional Red Point Event (The Olive Lott Pairs) will be played on the first three Wednesday mornings.

See how far Covid has invaded our lives – imagine the oldest daytime club event not being played on the traditional Monday morning session!
