HOW TO GET SCORES FROM THE BRIDGEMATE
When you have entered your final score, the Bridgemate will say “End of Session”.

Look for the word “Rank” in the window of the Bridgemate.

Press the “Rank” button (just below the word) and that will give you the current ranks and percentages for the 2 pairs at the table at the end of the session.

North/South Pairs: Next to the word “Rank” it will say “Game Summary” in the window. Press the button below that and you will get the list of scores for the North/South pairs.

East/West Pairs: Clear the Bridgemate and press “OK”.

Press “OK” to start the Bridgemate again.

Put in the Section letter of the game if it isn’t already there. Press “OK”.

Put in the Table # where you are sitting. Press “OK”.

Press the button under the word “Rank”. Put in your Pair # and then press the E/W button. Press “OK”.

Press the button for “Game Summary” for the scores for the East/West pairs.

Congratulations!
Kathy Kimmerling and Craig Lemrow finished 2nd in the Flight C GNT in Morganton on May 7th. This is a great accomplishment and they are now qualified to participate in the Mini Spingold at the Toronto Nationals this summer. They will receive a stipend from District 7 for the trip. They won 2.81 Gold points! Way to go you two!

New Open Side Game and New Scoring Correction Policy
At the December Board Meeting, the Board of Directors approved a new open side-game on Tuesday afternoons. This game will begin on the first Tuesday in January. The game is open for all players, not just those with 1500+ MP. So grab your favorite partner and make plans for Tuesday!

Additionally, a new score change policy was adopted. Beginning in January, score corrections will only be accepted immediately after the game. Once you leave the building, it is too late to request a score correction. This policy is in-line with policies at tournaments and will also greatly reduce the work our Game Directors do. So, please check your scores on the BridgeMates and check your burger after the game.
