MEMBER

CENSURED

AND FINED

A DISCIPLINARY Committee

of the English Bridge Union

recently considered a charge

brought under Rule 3.2(v) of

the EBU Disciplinary Rules

against Mr Richard Cross. Mr

Cross had walked out of the

EBU Autumn Congress in

October without notice after

receiving a Tournament Direc tor's

ruling with which he disagreed.

This caused inconvenience

to other congress participants.

Mr Cross did not deny

the charge. The Disciplinary

Committee fined Mr Cross

£50 and asked for a letter of

censure to be issued.

UNWANTED

DIARIES

SOME members will have re ceived

a diary with this mag azine,

despite opting out of re ceiving

one. This may well seem

odd, so here is the reason why.

Due to how we are charged

for dispatching the magazines,

we needed a certain number of

members to opt out of the

diaries before it was cheaper to

send a magazine without a

diary (see page 3). As we did not

reach that number, it was more

cost-effective to send a diary

with every magazine, whether

one was requested or not.

We hope that we will have

more people opt out in the

coming year and we will reach

the critical figure, which means

that omitting the diaries for

those members who do not

want one will be viable in 2015.

Please help us

to help you

by ensuring your

contact details,

inc luding your

email address, are

up to date. Visit

the Members' area

at www.ebu.co.uk

and use the

'My Details' tab,

or contact us on
