Folks, we need to remind you that each Member is responsible for helping tidy up the room at the end of each evening. Your chair should be pulled (or lifted if you are able) to the side of the room and your table folded and put at the store room door. The table cloths, bidding boxes, etc are also the responsibility of each Member. If you are not physically able to help, that is fine, don't worry.
The GAA staff are not always available to set up the table for us but we are grateful when they do help.
Once again we would like to thank those Members who come early and leave later in order to ensure play begins on time and that we leave the room as we found it.

The 4Fun Teams – 25 May 2019 @ Westmanstown Sports Centre
This annual event, for the Frank & Brenda Kelly Trophy, was played for the first time in June 2009 to introduce players to the fun of bridge in a teams atmosphere. Teams are comprised of 4 players for every County & City across the country- one each of Master, Intermediate A, Intermediate B & Novice Grades. Master players may only be selected from the Area or Regional Master ranks. The original format where the Master will play the Novice and the Intermediate A with the Intermediate B will apply.
Systems and conventions to be used are very restricted to ensure that everyone feels comfortable at the table. Please contact the Club Secretary if you wish to enter a team.
The Committee would like to invite Members - old and new - to join a sub-Committee to organise an event to mark the 40th Anniversary of our beautiful Club. It is envisaged for early 2020 which gives this sub-Committee time to plan the event with the support of the regular Committee. Please approach either our President Joe or our vice-President Theresa with your name or ideas for the event.
All Members are asked to lend old photos from competitions and parties to the Committee. We will scan them and return them to you very quickly.
CONGRATULATIONS TO FRANK AND JOAN ON THEIR FANTASTIC WIN!!
AND CONGRATULATIONS TO BRID ON BEST NOVICE!
