2008 WBF Charity Pairs
How it works !
We will run six events, from Monday 23- Saturday 28 January inclusive.
There is no set entry fee - this is an event that is played for fun and you are simply asked to request players to make a donation - as much as they can afford - to be sent on to the Charity.
There will be different hands each night and clubs may play any (or all !!) nights if they wish. We hope as many of you as possible will join us. If you can't - just make a collection on your club night and send the proceeds to the Charity... they will be just as welcome, whether you play the set hands or not ! You will be able to make a personal donation if you wish, of course and nearer the time we will tell you how you can do this.
If you want to play our hands and have it scored on line, this is what happens:
|We will send you, by email, a zip file containing:|
|a.||The travellers in Acrobat PDF format (you will need Acrobat Reader which is free from www.adobe.com to read this file)|
|b.||The hands in Word format, in case you can't read the acrobat file !|
|c.||Four files, ending .dlm, .pbn, .bri and .dup for use by those of you with automatic dealing machines - if you don't have such a machine, just ignore these files|
|To unzip the file you will need Winzip or one of the other "archive" programs.|
So start off by emailing us and tell us :
|a.||the name of your club|
|b.||where you are located - the town and country|
|c.||the email address you need the file sent to|
|and (very important)|
|d.||which day you want to play|
Just set it all up as normal, and just play and enjoy ! The hands are straight computer deals, no messing, no selection so they should be quite fun I hope !
We are not charging an entry fee as such - just hoping that you will "pass the hat around" and collect as much as you can on the night. Details of how donations can be made are here
After you have played the event ...
You need to score it and upload to the server - the session numbers are on the travellers and in the word file. Details of how to score are here. If for any reason you can't score and upload, don't worry - your results won't appear on the site, but it isn't the end of the world. You can still make your donation, and that is the important thing !
Then you need to make the payment of your donation. Go to our Home page where you can click to donate either by Credit Card or Pay Pal
Then just watch the results coming through and see how you did.
There are no prizes for coming first and we are not giving master points - it is too expensive, and we want as much money as possible to go to the Fund.
