DATES FOR YOUR DIARIES
The Club Championship will take place over two Wednesday evenings on 5th and 12th December 2018.
Please come along to the Christmas Party on Wednesday the 19th December 2018 we would love to see as many Members there as possible. You do not need a partner but please use the form opposite to let us know that you are coming.
If you know of a member with a 'special' birthday coming up soon please let Jane Pace know at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01843 842410
Tuesday afternoon sessions are continuing at 2pm for a 2:15 start to enable more members to attend.
Just a short note to thank you all for your very kind messages, flowers and donations to Prostate Cancer Kent.
I have been overwhelmed by all of your kindness at this very sad time.
For those of you that attended the funeral, I hope you didn’t get too wet, I think we had about 250 people at the crematorium and about 150 back at the golf club. There was therefore nearly 100 people I didn’t get to thank, but I hope it wasn’t too bad standing.
I think the funeral was exactly what Mick would have wanted. We will all miss him greatly.
Once again, thank you to you all,
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 email@example.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 (or use our partner finding service, see below), 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'.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please 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 visitors 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 following Club Members received a Masterpoint Promotion in November:-
As you will have seen the Club's Xmas party is being held on Wednesday 19th December. You do not need a partner.
