Membership Campaign Update

Since joining in September, Membership Development Officer Tim Anderson has been hard at work setting up the new EBU Membership Development Campaign Website, a permanent link to which has been added to our home page.

Included as part of the website will be regular blog posts looking at ways to expand membership in your area.

Read the first blog post titled 'Promoting bridge in your area with a dedicated web site', here.

The website also has some great resources for membership campaigns and case studies from clubs that have run successful campaigns.

Andrew Eastwood wins again in online ladder

Andrew Eastwood has won the monthly ladder competition for the EBU's online games for the fourth time in five months. He finished with an average of 67.24% from his best four results in the month.

The games are held on Funbridge every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. You play with, and against, robots so you don't need a partner and can stop and re-start as often as needed. Master Points are awarded in every game, and there are cash prizes for the best players each month and across the year.

Free game: on New Year's Day you will be able to play for free, so if you haven't already tried the games it will be a great chance to do so.
