Tuesday afternoon sessions occur on the first and third Tuesday of the month.  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.

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".

 
Subscriptions for 2017

The annual subscription for 2017 is £25, i.e. unchanged from last year.  Subscriptions can be paid to Ian Bartle any time in December rather than waiting until 2017.  This can either be at the club in cash or cheque, or by a cheque payable to The Chichester Bridge Club and posted to:

Ian Bartle, Broad Oaks, Old Broyle Road, West Broyle, Chichester, PO19 3PR.

Lists Lists Lists

There are currently three lists on the notice board.  Please don't forget to sign up if you wish to participate.  Some are strictly limited - see below

Random Teams   Christmas Party  Andrew Robson Evening

        Christmas Party list now full and waitlisted.

Exciting new sessions planned

From January 13 we will be starting No Fear sessions every second Friday.  These will be perfect sessions for those keen to play duplicate bridge but who are perhaps not quite ready for our Monday and Thursday sessions.   The sessions will be directed by Leigh Harding and they are aimed specifically at those new to bridge or new to duplicate.  Further details will be released prior to January 13. 

Arun League 2016-17

Our team won our second Arun league match against Bognor and have now won one and lost one in our attempt to retain our title from last season.   The Arun league gives us the opportunity to be inclusive and we are always happy to encourage club duplicate players to take part.  The team for December has been announced but subsequent months have not yet been decided, so if you have a regular partner and would like to be considered for a match, please e-mail Thea.Sydenham@gmail.com who organises the teams. As mentioned previously, a record 26 players took part last year, making it a real club event!

No Fear Bridge Session

On Saturday 12 November Chichester Bridge Club hosted a Bridge seminar run by Leigh Harding of No Fear Bridge fame.  It was very well supported and enjoyed by forty attendees, many of whom had not been to the club before. The committee would like to thank Leigh for her generosity in donating the £480.00 proceeds to St Wilfrid’s Hospice “DreamBuilding” project. 

Andrew Robson Evening

♠   ♣ We are delighted that Andrew has once more agreed to come to our club to give another masterclass.   He has suggested covering one of his popular programs to include setting up suits in trump contracts, extending the take out double and which card to lead during the defence. As usual he will lots have interesting deals illustrated at each table using his magic cards.

The class will take place on Friday, January 20 at 7.00pm and it will cost £10 to attend.  We expect this event to be sold out and hence will be giving priority to club members.  Until December 14, places (one per member) can only be purchased by those who have paid club membership.  After December 14 those who attend lessons at our club but are not club members can also reserve places.  From January 1, until places are sold out, club members can reserve further (multiple) places for their guests and non members may reserve places.   Hence, if you are a member do not wait until 2017 but buy now.

Places can be reserved by paying Thea Sydenham or Ian Bartle.  There is no need to come with a partner but it will be possible to select tables so that you may sit with your chosen partner or friends. ♠   ♣

  

Christmas Party

Our Christmas Party for members and Students will take place at 6.30p.m. on Thursday 15th December. There will be drinks & substantial nibbles followed by fun bridge. There will also be a charity raffle in aid of the Sussex Surrey & Kent air ambulance. All donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by the committee. 

This evening is free of charge but is limited to 80 and is on a first signed up basis. The sheet for signing is on the club notice board NOW.  List Full, waitlist for anyone wishing to attend

New newsletter for students and improving players

Our new student newsletter will keep you up to date with news of all sessions at the club which may be of interest to learners and less experienced players.  If you’d like to receive the newsletter direct to your inbox please register here 

Which Session?

The bridge sessions at Chichester club are diverse and hopefully cater to the desires of all our members.   All our sessions are open to all members and those who are new to bridge or less experienced will always be welcome even at our most competitive sessions.    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.   From 2017, we will be running bi-weekly No Fear sessions on Friday evenings for those new to bridge or duplicate.   Pick the evening that suits you best.    And should you prefer to play during the afternoon we now have an afternoon duplicate session on the first and third Tuesday of the month.  Please attend by 1.50 for a 2.00pm start.  The standard and general feel to that session is not dissimilar to a Saturday evening session.  As a member you are welcome at all five 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.
