That was always going to be the headline, as it was an all-Bath BC final. In the event, after a fiercely fought and very enjoyable contest, with the scores neck and neck all the way, the Jones team just edged it over the Bridge team by 9 IMPs.
Congratulations to the winning team (Pat Davies, James Dunlop, James Green, Ambrose Holmes-Mackie, Chris Jones & John Treble) and commiserations to the runners-up (Stuart Bridge, Susie Gall, Roger Karn & Trevor Purches).
Our commiserations to the Bath Uni Portland Bowl team, who lost their match against UCL on Saturday 8th December by the narrow margin of 6 IMPs.
A reminder that the club parties are on Tuesday & Wednesday this year. Drinks and nibbles will be available before bridge. Play will commence at 7.00, and we will eat at half time. Please arrive in time!
Thanks for your contributions – please bring ready plated up if possible. As always, wine and soft drinks will be supplied by the club. See you there!
Monday evening & Tues/Thurs morning sessions: There will be mulled wine and posh biscuits on the evening of Monday 17th December and the mornings of Tuesday 18th December and Thursday 20th December.
We are running a repeat of this seminar on Monday 14th January. The session will be in the afternoon (coffee/tea at 1.45 for a 2 o'clock start), fuelled by some splendid cakes instead of lunch, and the cost will be £15 per head.

As we're an EBU club, we use the EBU Blue Book to determine which bidding systems and conventions we are permitted to use.
For most of our sessions, we comply with Level 4, which allows most systems/conventions that most players are likely to be familiar with.
For our Thursday morning Gentle Duplicate and Monday evening Assisted Play, however, we are limited to Level 2, which limits players to fairly simply bidding systems and common conventions: Stayman, transfers and Blackwood are all fine.
If you're not sure about the suitability of any parts of your system, ask any experienced Club Director for guidance. Alternatively, click here for a link to the Blue Book on the EBU website.
What to do if this issue comes up at the table? See our guidance in Doing things right ... (you can find this via Articles in the menu, left).
What level is right for me?
With the growing choice of daytime and evening sessions now available at Bath BC, newer members and visitors may not be sure which options best suit their level of ability and experience.
If you're in doubt, click here to consult our Guide to levels. (It's also available via the menu, left.)
And, of course, feel free to consult any committee member if you need further advice.
