The date for this year's Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Friday 28th September. As last year, Bath BC member Judith Thomas has kindly offered to bring cakes, this time to all Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday sessions during the week beginning 1 October.
Last year's donations made during our cake-enhanced coffee break on just the Wednesday evening totalled £170 - so please help Judith increase our contribution to this very worthy charity by putting donations in the box provided.
Two autumn seminars for improving/social players
We're delighted again to be able to offer a series of two seminars this autumn designed to help improving and social bridge players at our club.
The sessions will run on Wednesdays from 11.00 till 2.00 (morning coffee on arrival from 10.45) and will include a break for lunch. They are as follows:
We should have been in game, presented by Chris Jones [Now full - waiting list available]

Bath Bridge Club has again risen sharply in the EBU's list of 'Top Clubs by Players'. Last year we jumped into the top 50 at position no 39, and this year we have risen a further 12 places to become the 27th most popular bridge club in England. Congratulations and thanks to all who give of their time to make our club a continuing success. Onwards and upwards!
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.
