The East District is organising a short introductory Tournament Director training course which will be delivered by Duncan Cursiter on Sunday 8 September at the New Melville Bridge Club.

This is a one session event designed for players who have recently commenced, or considering, starting to direct at their local clubs. The course is also very suitable for League Team captains to deal confidently and accurately with simple and straightforward ruling at league matches.

We will spend approximately an hour discussing basic movements for pairs and teams. Then break for soup and lunch, and then spend two hours looking at the most common Law book infringements, eg revokes, faced opening lead out of turn, penalty cards, inadvertent bids, insufficient bids, etc.

Full details in the course PDF outline.

Please note that if you are not a representative of a club or league team in the East District you may still register, but you will most likely be placed on a waiting list until all participants from East clubs have been allocated places.
