Online Yorkshire League – Winter 2021
Following on from the successful Autumn online Yorkshire League competition, a Winter league will take place, along with a Knockout Cup and Plate competition.
YCBA hope that players will see this as an opportunity to have a go at online bridge against other clubs keeping the sporting ethos and competitive nature of the Yorkshire League and as many teams that wish to play can be catered for.
The competition will take place on the Bridgebase Online (BBO) platform, and will be run for teams of 4 (rather than the usual 8) and consist of 7 rounds of 12 boards matches played over 5 Sundays.
As with the normal Yorkshire League, the competition is using the standard EBULeague facilities.
Please use the ‘Important Links’ menu on the right for further information.
1. Please note that the entry form is a non editable PDF format file, but after downloading can be completed using one of these 3 methods:
a) Using Microsoft WORD to open the file will cause the PDF file to be converted and fields can then be edited. Once the information has been entered, and the file saved, it can be emailed as a WORD or PDF document attachment to the required email address.
b) Using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the file and selecting the ‘Fill and Sign’ option from the ‘Tools‘ menu will allow text to be entered into the form. Once the information has been entered, and the file saved as a new PDF, it can be emailed as an attachment to the required email address. Foxit Reader, an alternative PDF viewer, has a similar ‘Fill and Sign’ feature.
c) If either of the two above methods are not possible, the document can be printed, completed by hand, scanned, and the scanned document sent as an email attachment as above.
