NEW COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS

The government has announced that

From 5pm on Thursday 6th May 2021, residents in the Greater Sydney region will have to wear masks in public indoor settings including on transport, at the supermarket and any event that is inside.
Hospitality workers will also need to wear them while serving diners.
These restrictions will be in place until 12.01am on Monday morning, 10th May.

As well as mandatory masks, residents will only be allowed to have 20 people in their homes for the next three days. There will also be no singing and dancing in indoor venues before midnight on Sunday, with the only exception being at weddings where a limit of 20 people is recommended for a dancefloor.

The restrictions apply to residents in Greater Sydney, the Central Coast and down to the Illawarra region.

This means that any clubs playing bridge in the designated regions will have to wear masks over the next three days. Club officials might consider purchasing a supply of masks for their players.

My ABF launched

The Australian Bridge Federation has launched its new technology platform. The My ABF platform will support bridge across Australia for the ABF, state and territory organisations, clubs and of course all Australian bridge players.

First congress using the new My ABF entry system

The NSWBA Online Summer Matchpointed Swiss Pairs Congress on January 31 was the first congress in the country to trial the new My ABF entry and payment system.

My ABF will be increasingly rolled out across the country and allows any club to list a congress and accept online entries and payments. It also gives players a personalised login for your bridge activities from where you can:

  • Manage your personal details
  • View your masterpoints
  • View, enter, and pay for bridge events
  • See announcements from the ABF, your State and your Club.
  • Participate in bridge discussion forums
  • Run a “Bridge Credits” account with the ABF which you can put money into to pay for your bridge entries

To enter a My ABF congress you need to sign up to My ABF which takes about 30 seconds!
