Playing on Wednesday or Thursday without a partner?

If so please be sure to arrive at the club at least ten minutes before play begins, that is before 6.50 pm so that play is not delayed. It will not be possible to accommodate latecomers.  On Wednesdays the director acts as host.

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".

 
Charity Bridge Seminars

There were almost 40 attendees over the four sessions who enjoyed some excellent tuition on subjects ranging from defence to strong hands to simple squeeze play to doubling.    Much work went into these sessions and we are all indebted to David and Cliff who led the seminars;  Thea who did much behind the scenes to organize the sessions and convert most of the flip charts to Powerpoint; and  Mike and Yves who attended and helped with bidding and play in the card play sessions.   The huge bonus is that these enjoyable and worthwhile sessions raised £735.50 and the treasurer is sending a cheque for that amount to Air Ambulance on behalf of the club.    We can all be proud.

Random Seeded Teams

The next Teams event will be on February 25.  Would all those who have signed for the January event which was cancelled please make sure you sign again for the event on February 25th.   Names cannot be carried forward from last month and only those who sign in advance can play.   We are hoping for a great turnout on February 25.

Can you spare some time to help the bridge club?

We have been fortunate in securing more volunteers to help pre-deal the hands and to assist with the bridgemates but would welcome some more volunteers to direct at club evenings.  Full training will be given.   Should we have one, or more, volunteer willing to join our list of club directors we would endeavour to have the training done by the EBU at our club.

Directing.   This may seem complicated but the club has a list of movements that can be used for any situation and all directors are given a rule book and full EBU training.   It means turning up about 15 minutes earlier and setting out the room.  Because we use bridgemates there is no scoring to be done after the event.  You only direct.   This training would entail a two, three or four day course with other aspiring directors from other clubs.  Once qualified, those who prefer their bridge more relaxed may opt to only direct on a Saturday or Wednesday.  Conversely, you may opt to direct on the other evenings or any evenings.  The choice would be yours and currently would entail directing just over once a month.

If you can help or would like a more detailed explanation of what is involved please contact Thea or Peter B.
