Tuesday Afternoon Sessions

Tuesday afternoon sessions are continuing, including on May 31st. However from July 5th the session will be at 2pm for a 2:15 start to enable more members to attend.

 
Broadstairs Bridge Club
Broadstairs Bridge Club

Welcome to Broadstairs Bridge Club. The club is a member of the English Bridge Union. We play at the Portland Centre, St Peter's Church Hall, Hopeville Avenue, Broadstairs CT10 2TR on Wednesday evenings at 6:50pm, on Monday afternoons at 2:20pm and on Tuesday afternoons at 2:00pm. Also we host a Gentle Duplicate evening (playing fewer boards) on the second Tuesday in a month at 6:50pm. If you want to know more about us email sharon.bayne@btopenworld.com

 -----------------------------------

We aim for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, playing about 22/24 boards and stopping for a tea/coffee break with biscuits (18 boards with no break on a Monday). Visitors are welcome but please come as a pair, and please note that space is limited so please telephone ahead (for further details please click on 'Information' then 'Where and When').  Facilities for the disabled are excellent.

Membership is currently open and if you would like to become a member please obtain a Membership Form from one of the Committee or download one from the website.  Hopefully you will find any other details you are looking for on this web site. For a bit more information about the club click on 'information' then 'general'.

HOST AND PARTNER FINDING

We want to ensure that everyone who wants to get a game at Broadstairs can do so. The Message Board has always been available for anyone wishing to leave requests for partners and continues to be so. Also in the in the Members Area of the web site requests for partners can be placed against specific events in the calendar and this also continues.

However we are introducing two new services which are being run by Peter Webster. The first is a Partner Finding Service.

 If you know you will need a partner call and leave a message, or text Peter Webster on 07710 419241, or email him on prwebster@hotmail.co.ukPlease leave contact details, dates, and any preferences.  He will co-ordinate the service, keeping a list for all partner requests for upcoming sessions, and notify you if a suitable partner is available.

Please try to register your partner requests at least 24 hours in advance, as on-the-day requests may be difficult to match.

If anybody does not regularly play a particular session, but is happy to consider occasional games with those seeking a partner at short notice, please register an interest.

On Wednesdays we are able to guarantee a partner for single players (apart from special events such as Sim pairs) through our Host System.

To get a game please telephone Peter on 07710 419241 as far in advance as possible and in any event no later than 12.00 noon on the day. Leave a message including your name and that you want to play on the Wednesday and turn up at the club by 6:40pm. If there are an even number of such requests you will be paired up on arrival. If there are an odd number the host will play to make up the numbers. The host will be contacted either way by 1:00pm to be told whether or not they are needed.

Regular Wednesday players are expected to act as host no more than once a year. Please look on the calendar to see on which night you are needed. If you cannot make that date please swap with another member and let Peter know so that the records can be updated. Please make sure you are available to receive the call from Peter between 12 noon and 1:00pm.

This service is meant to be a facility for vistors and members whose regular partner is not available. It is not intended to be used on a long-term basis as a substitute for establishing a regular partnership.

The draw for the final is now available.  Please play between 20 and 24 boards – This must be agreed at the start of play. Score cards are available, please see Carol.

Hand 1, nobody is vulnerable, hand 2 it is the dealer, hand 3 it is the dealer and hand 4 everyone is vulnerable, then repeated.

I would suggest both teams get together to arrange a date and perhaps toss a coin to decide who would like to be the home team.

Please complete this round as soon as possible, but by the 11th December 2016 at the latest.

Please advise Carol of the results by email on carolbrocklehurst@tiscali.co.uk or by phone on 01843 603475

Our last session of Bridge before Christmas will be at our Christmas Party night on Wednesday the 21st December 2016 and the next session will be the Tuesday afternoon session on Tuesday the 3rd January 2017

Every time a club holds a heat of a simultaneous pairs the club is entered in to a prize draw where once a year it can win up to £1,000. The winners of each club heat are also entered into a separate draw with the same prize structure.

Bill Gardner and Elaine Cartledge won a simultaneous pairs heat at Broadstairs and have subsequently won £100 in the prize draw. It is no good expecting them to buy you a drink though as it is "EBU Money" which they can spend to enter EBU competitions or at the EBU Shop but not at the bar!
