The Club will be open in the afternoon for Rubber Bridge every day except Sunday and Monday
Many thanks must go to David Green for his sterling efforts in producing the Club Handbook and also the promotional flyer. After some months of hard work the club is now in a position to provide an electronic copy for your use.
A copy can be found under CLUB INFORMATION but you can also click on the title above to gain access.
I am very pleased to announce that we shall be starting a Wednesday afternoon duplicate - The Duplicake - from Wednesday 16th May. A great part of this initiative is the intention to increase the numbers of players playing at the club - particularly amongst the less-experienced. Consequently, the Duplicake will be run with an eye on the social aspect of the game - a half-time break to socialise is built in to the timetable. And the Duplicake will be run in two sections to protect both ends of the bridge-playing spectrum from each other, with duplimated boards.
Well what has been happening? Firstly we now have a Deep End and a Shallow End, this was suggested by Paul Singer………from the Shallow End see later. Over the last two weeks we have been spoilt by our cake makers with Lemon Cake, Sponge with Raspberries, Lime cake & Coffee& Walnut cake. So who has been doing what? Hilary Barnett & David Green have been stealing the show in the Deep End both for the last two sessions with Paul Singer & Janine Marks and Patrick Hampson & Cathy McLay winning from the Shallow End.
Please see poster on the website which is under GENERALNEWS. You may be able to show your bridge playing friends. As mentioned on the poster, members may well find the Duplicake the ideal opportunity to introduce their kitchen-bridge-playing friends to the club. The more, the merrier!
Final Non Swiss Pairs table for 2017-18 can be found under COMPETITIONS.
