CAFE BRIDGE GUILDFORD
CAFE BRIDGE GUILDFORD

Another Triumph for Café Bridge Guildford!


Started by Bob Fuller and our very own Polly in 2011, this charitable event is now in its third year and becoming more and more popular. As most of you will know, the two charities chosen this year were Shooting Star Chase and CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young), for which over £2,000 was raised. Well done to all the players who made this event such a success.

The team of organisers and helpers this year consisted of Michele Perry, Polly Youngs, Eddie Briggs, Jane Nind, Brenda Elshaw, Judy Gaman, Wendy Megevney, Sally Paget-Brown, Brenda Rees and Trevor Hobson and not seen on the day, but who created all the personalised programmes and travellers behind the scenes, the one and only Bob Fuller. If anyone as been left out it is Douglas's fault! There were also 7 venue gurus!
 

 A big thanks to Brenda  (with Judy as her right-hand ‘man’) for scoring all day, on the day, with scarcely an opportunity to draw breath as the ‘runners’, Wendy, rushed around gathering the travellers to take back to the hub of operations – All Bar One.

Huge congratulations and thanks all round.

Registration began at 10.15 in the morning, with coffee, where Sally and Brenda were selling raffle tickets and Michele coped calmly with last-minute cancellations. Before long the requisite 56 pairs were assembled,and we were off.

Seven carefully selected restaurants in the town – All Bar One, Loch Fyne, Olivo, the Keep, Bills in the Angel, Ask and Café Rouge – generously acted as the host venues and did us proud while the players made their carefully orchestrated way from one restaurant to another to play cards, eat, drink and have fun.

At the start of the day each pair was given a personalized printed programme, so they knew exactly where to go when and, most importantly, in which of the seven restaurants they were going to have lunch! Coffee and drinks were of course also available in each restaurant throughout the day.

Then, at 4pm, all the players, by now in high spirits (if not from their superb card play then from the wine), reconvened back at headquarters in All Bar One for the results and prize giving.

A lot of hard work was put into this event, especially by Michele, who managed all the entries and players, but the congratulations that flowed in and, of course, the money raised, made it all worthwhile.

It must have been, for it has already been decided that NEXT YEAR’S CAFE BRIDGE WILL BE HELD ON THURSDAY 24 SEPTEMBER – put it in your diaries!

If you know anyone who wishes to enjoy the wonderful Café culture in Guildford, Douglas is providing Free Bridge Taster Sessions on Tuesday mornings at 10am in Harris & Hoole, North Street, during the month of October. Contact him on  07801 989630 douglaswright@3countiesbridge.com for details. 

Congrats to the winners Davina Arkell & Jan Benton, and Ann Lloyd & Graham Samuel.
