Bridge Mon night 15th December cancellation

Update: It is now confirmed that the final week of the Schaufelberger Teams will go ahead on Mon 22nd December. We look forward to seeing you then.

In the light of today's siege in Martin Place, we have reluctantly concluded the session tonight will be cancelled. Even if there is a resolution immediately, transport access for many players this evening is going to be extremely difficult with road closures and Transport NSW are recommending the public avoid the CBD.

At this stage, provided enough teams are able/willing to play, it is our intention to reschedule the last week of the Schaufelberger Teams for next Monday 22nd December. We are contacting all teams today and will confirm as soon as possible whether or not this will happen. If not, we will refund/credit a portion of the event entry fees.

Thank you for your understanding and I am sure we all hope that today's incident is ultimately resolved peacefully.
