Schools

Douglas has just taught 20 future bridge teachers to teach Minibridge in Schools as part of a comprehensive programme for introducing Minibridge and Bridge to school pupils and creating a school bridge club.

Sports Clubs

Why not provide a venue for Bridge in your club? It's the ideal way to make full use of your existing facilities and increase social membership.

Congratulations to the 220 players who took part in CAFE BRIDGE GUILDFORD and a Big Thank You for helping to raise over £4500 for Shooting Star Chase and Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

We had lots of fun playing in the 13 restaurants and thank you to those restaurants for contributing to the Charities and providing some excellent lunches.

The restaurants deserve a mention: All Bar One, Loch Fyne, Olivo, The Keep, La Casita, Jamies and Ask and we added new restaurants this year The Three Pigeons, March Hare, Al Vicolo, White House, Britannia and Weyside

An enormous contribution was made by a whole team of volunteers and organisers and special mention must be made to some key people:

Graeme Attridge - A moving and informative talk on the wonderful work of CRY

Jacqueline Davis - Volunteer Ambassador who not only gave a superb talk but with Graeme worked tirelessly all day.

Lynn - Organiser extraodinaire who obtained 220 players and communicated with them over many months

Jane and Janette - Selected and organised the 13 restaurants to provide the facilities and tasty lunches

Victor, Caroline and Trevor- Tireless scorers who introduced everyone to the BriAn APP and scoring system

Marilyn - created a mammoth raffle with some excellent prizes

Alan, Bob and Pippa who now know how to prepare 275 different colour boards, with travelers and stuff them into bags for distribution to 13 restaurants.

Trevor and Lynn - the PR and pictures

Sally, Judith, Rebecca, Barbara, robert Julia who helped on the day with RAFFLE and setting up restaurants etc. If anyone has been left out it is Douglas's fault!

Of course a big congratulations to Paul Hainsworth and Terry Welsh who not only won the event but thoroughly enjoyed the bubbly and drinks at the prize giving. Full results are in the Results section on this website.

We expect to be sold out again next year even though there are plans to expand to 240 players and 15 restaurants, so if you have not participated before please ensure we have your email address early. More information will be in this CAFE BRIDGE section.
