More Helpers Needed
Benelux Bridgefriend Club
with its tournaments and Team Matches at BBO, and with
several other activities, is expanding in size and activity.
We started 1. Jan. 2004 and we
now have over. 4000 members. In the club we have achieved a very good
atmosphere and a a good
attitude, based on friendship and bridge ethics. In fact, good behaviour is a
must, and based on SB’s rules players who fail on behaviour rules will get
More Helpers Needed
It is a big job to organize
this club and all its activities, so we need more help of volunteers. We need
help in MANY ways. Maybe YOU have a special skill that you think could be of benefit for the club? If you feel you could contribute
to this, please contact the club: Contact SB and specify what you THINK you can do. We will then contact you.
Our tournaments at BBO are
growing and growing in participation. We now and then have to put limits on
participation because we don’t have enough volunteers to help out in the
tourneys. Pity...... But we do put limits on the tourneys so that the
registered staff can be able to do their ‘job’ in a satisfactory way, AND
that the staff have FUN of doing it. ( If too few helpers, it would be more of a stress
situation and the fun would go away. We are all different in the way of
being, and we WANT differences in our tourneys. But it must all be based on
Friendship and good bridge ethics. Our Club and tournament rules are also
based on this.
We run our tournaments with 2
kinds of helpers: TDs and Hosts. BOTH are equally
important for our tournaments. Some helpers fit better for being a TD, others
fit best to be a Host. We need you BOTH. As a compensation for not being able to play, the Hosts and TDs get a few ranking points each time they help.
Host: Our host’s main job is to be a ‘communication’ link
for the tourney. In other words: Inform the players about our tournament
specifications and to be a host for the tournament: to make everyone
TDs: Our TDs ( Tournament
Directors) will be doing regular directing duties. Subbing, adjustments , help at a table where TD is needed etc.
Web tools for SB Staff
For assisting our staff in what
has to be done, KjellH, the founder of SB, has
developed special software to be used by the SB Staff as tools for performing
needed tasks. All staff has these tools available, some staff has more tools
available than others.
Yes, we need a lot more help.
And we need helpers who are willing to help on OWN INITIATIVE.
We expect Hosts and TDs to help
out in a few tournaments per month. Not much, right? J But really, that
is all we ask. And if you have problems helping out in a period, just let us
know, and it will be of NO PROBLEM.
We have the system ready for
you. Can you afford a few times a month ( I think
you can ) J , then let us know that want to help out, and we are several in the SB_Staff group who would be pleased to assist you in
