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".

 
NO FEAR DUPLICATE BRIDGE HAS STARTED

This new session especially for students and newcomers to duplicate bridge is on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month 7.00pm-10.00pm .  We are delighted that the first session was a big success with 7 and a half tables.   With a comprehensive teaching programme and sessions catering to all abilities there are now sessions available at the club for bridge players of all abilities and beginners.   Friday "No Fear" sessions will be directed by Leigh Harding and suitable for Year 2 and 3 students and anyone new to duplicate bridge. Full details here  http://www.nofearbridge.co.uk/chichesterbc.html

 

Subscriptions for 2017

A huge thank you to the many members who have paid their subscriptions on time and a gentle reminder to those who keep meaning to pay that subscriptions are now overdue and MUST be paid by the end of January to ensure continuity of membership.  Ian is in attendance most sessions but any committee member will happily collect on Ian's behalf if he is not.  

Which Session?

The bridge sessions at Chichester club are diverse and hopefully cater to the desires of all our members.

Monday and Thursday evenings are our strongest sessions. 27 boards played

Saturday evenings and new bi monthly Tuesday afternoons are more relaxed and 24 boards played.

New bi monthly ‘No Fear Duplicate Bridge’ Friday evening session starts Jan 2017. This session is for students and newcomers to duplicate bridge and we initially expect to play only 15-18 boards.

All our sessions are open to all members. Those who are new to bridge or less experienced will probably want to start with the Friday, Saturday or Tuesday session. 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.  Though the bridge standard varies enormously dependent on the session chosen, we want all members to enjoy their bridge and we expect all members to adhere to Best Behaviour at Bridge at every session. 

Ladder

The calendar has been published up to and including April 2017.  It has been noted that the third Monday in April is Easter Monday and for that month only the Ladder competition will take place on the second Monday.  i.e. Ladder in April is on Monday, April 10.

Lessons for Spring Term 2017

Please see new lesson schedule under Bridge Lessons section on left.

Arun League

On 14 December the Chichester team won their match against Arun by a comfortable margin.  It was a good match played in a friendly spirit.  Chichester have now won two out of three matches, with three to go in the new year.  The current leaders are West Worthing, who won all three of their 2016/17 matches.   Well done to the West Worthing team! 

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. ♠   ♣

STOP PRESS.  At the time of writing(January 2), all tickets are sold.  Please contact Thea, if you wish to be wait listed for this event.
