Club Championship 2017/18

Following requests the committee has decided to change the rules for this competition.

  1. All non competition nights in the main season will be counted towards the championship. (The number of nights counting will vary from season to season depending on the number of competitions that the club plays and depending whether a competition is postponed to another date. The number of counting nights is likely to be 13/14).
  2. The minimum number of nights that must be played for a pairs result to count is 6
  3. The counting score will be the average score over all the counting nights played by the pair.
Inverness Congress

The Inverness Congress this year is to take place in the Highlander Hotel, Newtonmore over the weekend 23rd - 25th February.  Full details and entry form can be accessed by clicking on this link. It is hoped that our club members will find this a worthwhile event to attend - a good introduction to the idea of Bridge congresses for those who haven't tried it before.  There is a new competition on the Saturday afternoon for beginners, which would be a great way for those still to become regular club players to sample bridge with others of a similar level.  For those peole who would like to spend one or more nights in the hotel rather than travelling, the hotel offers extremely competitive rates.  John can give more details if required.
