The FFB has communicated COVID safe play guidelines to regular (licensed) players. The guidelines are reproduced here for the casual player, who may not have seen them.
Briefly, it is now strongly recommended that everyone wear a mask, that we wash our hands often, in soap and water or with the "gel hydroalcoolique", keep a certain distance from the other players at the table by using a larger table the surface of which can be cleaned regularly and using the same bidding box for a whole afternoon/evening session. Read on for the full guidelines (in French).
Unfortunately, no tournaments or workshops are in view, but that doesn't stop you from playing your friendly games of bridge, provided, of course, that you respect the health guidelines - see this article.
We now have three 110x110cm boards to be used to enlarge the bridge tables (with a mat underneath and another one on top) to increase the separation between players. A maximum of 2 tables should be used in the Bridge Room, but there's usually plenty of space in the main room and the bigger black tables can be used too.
It is time to renew your FFB licences - for the same amount as last year, i.e. €56 (cheque made out to the SAC Bridge Section). The Committee and the Federation need the income in order to keep functioning and if you are playing in a club or on Funbridge or BBO, you will need to have a valid licence (preferably before 1 November). A renewal form is attached to the main article but only needs filling out if your personal details have changed.
