Bridge Lunch - £2581 to Phyllis Tuckwell
The Bridge Section of the Bourne Club held their fund-raising lunch on April 3rd in aid of our neighbours, Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care. Our 112 guests enjoyed three sessions of mildly competitive bridge, an excellent lunch and took their chances with the raffle and its splendid range of prizes. In total the day raised £2581 for the hospice.
The Bourne Club Bridge Section – known as The Bourne Bridge Club - is a friendly and comfortable place where many of its 130 members will be found enjoying themselves on Monday and Thursday evenings every week. These competitive - but non-confrontational - duplicate sessions start promptly at 7.20 pm and end about 10.30 pm.
All hands are computer dealt and Bridgemates are used for scoring. All results are posted on our Website immediately after play has finished. The club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and the "Best Behaviour at Bridge" code of practice is observed as far as is humanly possible by everyone.
Throughout the year Duplicate and Teams competitions are held. Winners qualify to represent the club in Surrey Finals.
On Friday evenings some members of the Bourne Club meet at 7.20 pm for a very relaxed session of ‘No Fear’ bridge. "Supervised Practice" sessions, under the supervision of two senior members of the club, are held every Monday afternoon at 2.00 pm for those who would like help with their bidding or play.
Prior to applying to join the club potential members may visit the club on up to six times to see if they think that our club might be right for them. At the same time Club Committee members decide if they think that the person applying will fit in generally with the ethos of the club.
Visitors pay a Guest Fee of £1.50. Should they subsequently accept an invitation to join they will be required to pay a one-off Joining Fee of £25 after which the Annual Subscription of £133.00 entitles the member to play in any bridge session at the Bourne Club. Table Money is £1.00 per session on Mondays and Thursdays and just 60p for the relaxed session on Fridays.
Playing bridge in the comfortable environment of the Bourne Club costs the equivalent of one Cappucinno a week after which you have the opportunity to play 70 or more hands over about 9 hours which will cost the equivalent of another cup of coffee … and the bridge is so much better for you than all that caffeine!
To find out more about playing bridge in the friendly atmosphere at the Bourne Club ring the Chairman, Chris Tibbott, on 01252 716075.

Caffe Bourne Bridge will be taking a break until later this year when the new Committee will decide whether to resume this event on Tuesday mornings once a month or to try a different format. The April get-together is cancelled because the date clashes with the monthly meeting of NADFAS which a number of our regular coffee drinkers attend. Other dates in April are inconvenient for Tony and John as they fall as they do on hospital appointment days.
Please continue to send topics or interesting hands that you'd like to see discussed for amusement and instruction when Caffee Bourne Bridge restarts, to Tony at email@example.com.
Farnham Café Bridge
The first ever Café Bridge in Farnham will be held on Monday May 13th, 2019. This event involves playing bridge in six cafes and restaurants around Farnham and a raffle with prizes. The various venues will provide coffee or tea at the start of play and a 2-course lunch at another venue. The cost is £30 per player and all profits will go to the Samaritans. Ticket sales are open and it is expected this will be a very popular event with a cap of 100 players. Bookings can be made at https://www.brianbridge.net/farn2019. Lizzie Bennett will answer any questions you may have by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here for Farnham Cafe Bridge Details.pdf.
