2017 Laws of Duplicate BridgeJune 5, 2017
The new 2017 Laws of Duplicate Bridge come into effect for Australia and New Zealand on 1st August 2017. The only exception to this implementation date is where an event commences a day or two earlier and continues on through 1st August without any break of days, i.e. an event starting on the 31st July, finishing on 1st August will be played entirely under the old Laws.
The Victorian Bridge Association is pleased to advise that it will supply each Victorian Affiliated Club with a book of the new laws if your state capitation fee has been paid by the due date (31st May 2017). This represents a saving of $24.95 for each club and should you like to have more than one copy I can arrange to purchase it for you.
Additionally the VBA will host a session conducted by Laurie Kelso on Sunday 25th June 2017 from 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. covering the new laws at the VBA Clubrooms, 131 Poath Road, Murrumbeena. Each Affiliated Club may send 1 current ABF member from its club to attend this session free of charge. A light lunch will be provided. Additional attendees will be $25 each. It is suggested that attendees have directing experience as these are the people that will be most likely affected by the new Laws.
Registrations for the information seminar are essential. Please call Cathie Lachman 03-9530-9006 or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
