The AGM of the Devon Bridge Association will take place online via Zoom on Sunday 12 July 2020 at 11 am. (Agenda)
If you are intending to attend this AGM and have not received instructions by email on how to join the meeting, please contact [email protected].
The agenda and the accounts for 1 May 2019 to 30 April 2020 for all areas will be available to download below as soon as they are ready. It seems likely that this will be the only way to see the accounts for this year. Please email queries on any of the accounts to me ([email protected] and I'll pass them on where necessary).
The AGM will be followed by pairs bridge (24 boards) on BBO at 1.15 pm (registration opens 11.15 am). Entry fee BB$3 payable. Entries should reach Terence Treeby by 10 July.
Devon Virtual Bridge Club
Devon now has its own virtual club on BBO (vEBU_DEV).
Please make sure you register for the virtual club before entering an event.
Planned events are:
- 24-board AGM Pairs on Sunday 12 July at 1.15 pm
- West Devon pairs event at about the time of the Plymouth Congress. This will be on either two successive days one weekend in September or two successive Saturdays in September (Qualifier one day, finals the next).
- Two Charity pairs sessions in aid of Devon Air Ambulance. Provisionally a Saturday in September (not to clash with the West Section event) and Saturday 31 October.
We would like to run our events with Devon non-playing directors. Anyone willing to help, or with any other suggestions, please contact Terence Treeby ([email protected]).
Although we can no longer meet in person at our bridge clubs, some of the clubs in Devon have set up club games and leagues online. In the club games you will be playing against people you know. All sessions are open to visitors unless it says otherwise.

Somerset are playing events online and these include: a two sessions barometer pairs, a pivot teams, a Masters Swiss Teams and an extended Swiss teams competition. See bridgewebs.com/somerset for further details.
The EBU are playing five 12-board games daily and have set up various leagues. See ebu.co.uk/node/3738 for further details.
Let me know of other games where 'visitors' are also invited and I'll add them to the list.
We regret to announce that Joy passed away on 15 May. She was a long time member of Torquay Bridge Club and served on the South Section Committee.
Many events have been cancelled in the county for the rest of the season: Winter Pairs, April DBA Sim Pairs, all Leagues (including the Western League), North Section Swiss Pairs.
The EBU has cancelled this year's Garden Ctiies, Corwen and Pachabo. As we have no entry fees to pay for these, prize money has now been paid to the top three finishers in the Devon Pairs and extra prize money to winners of the Devon Teams of Eight. It is hoped that the Devon Teams will be completed eventually and prize money will be paid at thet point.
Play has also been suspended at many clubs. I suggest you check on the their websites for the most up to date information.
Winter Pairs: The March ladder stands as the final result, with Dave Strawbridge and Douglas Dunn as the winners.
South Section League: The intention is to play the March and April matches at later dates to complete the season. This will remain under review.
