Random Seeded Teams

This competition will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month except December.   It is proving very popular but for administration purposes and to ensure we do not end up with an odd number of pairs you must sign on the notice board to indicate you wish to take part by the Monday preceding the event.  The current scores can be seen under the "Competition" menu and "Random Seeded Teams Points".

 
Arun League 2016 - 2017

The Arun League is taking place again this year, starting on October 19th against West Worthing (away).  Matches are played on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, except in December, when it is the 2nd Wednesday.  Last year a record 26 players took part in the six matches, resulting in an overall win for Chichester.  If you’d like to be part of the team this year, please e-mail team organiser Thea.Sydenham@gmail.com.  Teams will be selected separately for each match and we’ll try and include as many people as possible and hope to replicate last year’s success.  It’s good fun and good experience, and even got a mention in a well-known bridge column in The Times recently.  “Hot stuff this Arun League”, it said!

♥♦ Bridge CANCELLED ♥♦

We have recently been made aware of an Open Evening in the school on Thursday, October 6.   Since this will involve over 500 visitors it seems the prudent step is to cancel bridge on that evening.  We had intended this as our Charity Bridge evening and this will be rescheduled to October 27.   Please accept our apologies for cancelling bridge on October 6 but we feel parking for most attendees would have been close to impossible.  

Afternoon Bridge

Our first session of afternoon duplicate was a great success with six tables and we look forward to this event growing and flourishing.   The afternoon duplicate will be held on the first and third Tuesday of the month so the next session will be held on Tuesday, October 4.  There will not be a host but should you wish to play on Tuesday but dont have a partner, Sandra Ward-Brown is happy to accept phone calls (01243 681788) to try and help people looking to pair up for a session.  Please arrive at the club between 1.30pm and 2.00pm for these sessions.

Charity Bridge Evening Rescheduled

We intended to hold our charity bridge evening on October 6 but this bridge evening has since been cancelled due to a clash with the school Open Evening.   The Charity Bridge evening will now take place on October 27.   This will be a normal bridge evening but there will be a raffle and all proceeds raised will be donated to Air Ambulance, a most worthy cause.  Please feel free to bring in prizes for our raffle at any session prior to October 27, or on the evening.  Thank you for your support which we know is always warmly and handsomely given.

NICKO Success

Our NICKO team won another close fought match against a team from the Young Chelsea club in the semi final of the plate.   Fortunately, our team were playing their best bridge and have extended their winning run in this competition to 6 matches and are now in the final of this national competition where they will meet a team representing British Rail which is based in Derby.   At this point the venue for the match has not been decided.   We wish our team every success.

Changes and New Sessions

SUPERVISED PLAY IS MOVING TO WEDNESDAYS

Supervised play will move to WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS in September, starting on 28 September. It will continue to run in its current successful format, led by Peter Burns.   Please make a note in your diary now of the new time and starting date.  For more information, see Supervised Play section under Bridge Lessons.

TUESDAY AFTERNOON BRIDGE

Following a number of requests, the club is introducing new bridge sessions at 2.00 pm on the 1st and 3rd TUESDAYS of the month, starting on September 20th.  It will be regular duplicate session, directed and scored as usual.  Please make a note in your diaries and support the event.

Which Session?

The bridge sessions at Chichester club are diverse and hopefully cater to the desires of all our members.   All our evenings are open to all members and those who are new to bridge or less experienced will always be welcome even at our most competitive evenings.    It is a good way to improve.  However, for many, we realise that a gentler, more relaxed, approach is their desire.   On Saturday nights the bridge is more relaxed and usually only 24 boards are completed as opposed to the 27 on Monday and Thursday evening.     Wednesday night is called GENTLE bridge night and it is our intention to make that night more appropriate for those new to bridge and those who prefer a less rigorous session.   We aim to complete just 21 boards and make all players feel at ease.  Hence, we would frown on experienced players using complex bidding systems and expect no more than basic Acol to be used.   The Director, rather than reading from the EBU rule book, may make helpful constructive suggestions.   However, the evening is still an official EBU P2P night and will have master points awarded at the same rate as any other night.   Pick the evening that suits you best.    As a member you are welcome at all four and visitors new to the club are welcome to trial each session until they find the session(s) most appropriate or exceed six attendances, at which point they would be invited to join.
