The ECatsBridge Summer Charity Pairs

Our 2021 summer event will be held during the week beginning 5th July ... and funds will be divided equally between Kidney Research UK and the British Heart Foundation - both charities really badly affected by the pandemic in terms of their funding capability so we are hoping as many people as possible will join us and help us raise Lots of Lovely Money for them. So - five days of Sims, different hands each day, from Monday 5th - Friday 9th July.

The suggested donation for the event is £3 per player - this is IN ADDITIION to your online fees, the EBU UMS fees and any "table money" charged by your club. Please click here for payment details, as for many clubs it would be preferable if this is paid by the individual players rather than added to the playing fee on the night (BBO would take a large percentage of it I am told!). As you will see, players can use bank transfer or PayPal or if necessary send us a cheque.

The event can be run on BBO, RealBridge or Bridge Club Live or ... if you are lucky enough to be "back at the green baize table" you can run it there of course, in the "old fashioned way". Wouldn't that be lovely !

I hope to have a list of clubs (virtual or real) where they will accept guests, and will post that here in due course.

Special instructions for running this online can be found here ... please read them carefully and please please please use the file there to practice importing the LIN file and then doing an upload of your results to our test area in advance !

The general instructions for running the event are here - please read them carefully.
