Reminder that Bray Congress will take place in the Dun Laoghaire Bridge Centre (Clarinda Park) this weekend, with Pairs on Saturday at 13:00 and Teams on Sunday at 11:00. Pre-entry is required via email to or to Anne Daly (086-2596889). Places are limited, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so please enter early.

The CBAI’s email system went down briefly late last week, with the possibility that emails sent to us on Thursday afternoon and Friday afternoon were not in fact received. If you sent us something important at either of those times, and have not received any reply or acknowledgement, it might be advisable to give us a call to make sure that the email arrived. The issues have been resolved, and we are not experienced any further email problems.
